Bills Presented: Clause 6 — Commencement, duration, extent and short title (15 Jul 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1989 was also subject to a six-monthly review, but it went on for 10 years having six-monthly reviews before eventually being replaced by the Terrorism Act 2000, so that did not actually end the Act at all.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: NATO Summit (8 Sep 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...13 years ago, Iraq 11 years ago, and now a massive NATO summit agrees to spend yet more money on defence around the world. What consideration was given to why there has been such an increase in terrorism since those two wars, and to why ISIL has grown as such a big force? Should the NATO summit, and indeed all leaders, be looking at the causes of war, and at the perception of the role of...

Business of the House: Iraq: Coalition Against ISIL (26 Sep 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...a little more deeply about what we have done in the past and what the effects have been. We have still not even had the results of the Chilcot inquiry. The current crisis descends from the war on terror, the ramifications of which have been vast military expenditure by western countries and the growth of jihadist forces in many parts of the world. Many people have lost their lives, and...

Overseas Voters (15 Year Rule): Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill (2 Dec 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that one problem is that there is a mentality and a default position that anything to do with national security and terrorism has to be dealt with by secretive special courts and a secretive special process, all designed to protect the security services from any kind of accountability? Does he agree that we should actually rely much more on the basis of the...

business of the house (today): Clause 2 — Temporary exclusion orders (15 Dec 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...speak briefly because I know the Home Secretary is about to reply. Following the speech of the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis) about the general direction in which anti-terror law has gone, I want to make two essential points. Ever since I have been a Member, we seem to have had some piece of anti-terror legislation before us every year. I assume that there is a...

business of the house (today): Clause 2 — Temporary exclusion orders (15 Dec 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...west did in Iraq and Afghanistan was appalling, and was questionably legal in the case of Afghanistan and definitely illegal in the case of Iraq. We are living with the consequences of the war on terror of 2001, and if we continue to try to create legal obstacles and make value judgments about people without considering the overall policy we are following, we will return to legislation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: G20 and Paris Attacks (17 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: and solidarity with the people of Paris in the wake of the horrific and unjustified attacks on the people who suffered in that city last Friday night. That solidarity extends to all victims of terrorism and conflict, whether they be in Paris, Beirut, Ankara or Syria itself. Absolutely nothing can justify the deliberate targeting of civilians by anyone, anywhere, ever. These contemptible...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: Let me start by expressing the horror of all Opposition Members at the events in Paris on Friday evening, and our continued solidarity with the victims and all those affected by conflict and terrorism, whether in Paris, Beirut, Ankara, Damascus or anywhere else in the world. Nothing can justify the targeting of innocent civilians by anyone. We know that at least one British national has been...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Minister agree that it is vital that everyone in public life—particularly we as politicians—must be careful how we discuss these issues? Will he join me in making it clear that the dreadful terrorism in Paris has nothing in common whatsoever with the 2 million British Muslims in this country who are as appalled as anyone else by the events in Paris last Friday?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: I have a question from a taxpayer, actually. His name is John and he says—[Interruption.] He says that at a time when we are experiencing the greatest threats from terrorism ever faced, our police office numbers and their resources are being cut and that “Demands on the police have been increasing steadily as budgets are slashed, increasing stress on officers. Couple that with detrimental...

Isil: National Security and Defence (23 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...for his statement. As I said last week in the House, the first duty of a state is to protect its own citizens. At the moment, this country’s overwhelming focus is on the threat we face from terrorism and how we can best ensure the defeat of ISIL. Labour supports the increased expenditure to strengthen our security services that the Prime Minister has announced to protect against the...

Women and Equalities: Syria (26 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...issue of whether what he proposes strengthens or undermines our security must be front and centre stage of our minds. There is no doubt that the so-called Islamic State group has imposed a reign of terror on millions in Iraq, in Syria and now in Libya. All that ISIL stands for and does is contrary to everything those of us on these Benches have struggled for over many generations. There is...

Business of the House: ISIL in Syria (2 Dec 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: move on and speed it up slightly, something which appears to meet with your approval, Mr Speaker. There is no doubt that the so-call Islamic State has imposed a reign of sectarian and inhuman terror in Iraq, Syria and Libya. There is no question but that it also poses a threat to our own people. The issue now is whether extending British bombing from Iraq to Syria is likely to reduce or...

Business of the House: ISIL in Syria (2 Dec 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: to. Is it wrong for us here in Westminster to see a problem, pass a motion, and drop bombs, pretending we are doing something to solve it? That is what we did in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Has terrorism increased or decreased as a result of all that? The Prime Minister said he was looking to build a consensus around the military action he wants to take. I do not believe he has...

European Council (22 Feb 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...a human race—we face some challenging issues: how to tackle climate change; how to address the power of global corporations; how to ensure that they pay fair taxes; how to tackle cybercrime and terrorism; how we trade fairly and protect jobs and pay in an era of globalisation; how we address the causes of the huge refugee movements across the world; and how we adapt to a world where...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Apr 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of Jersey said: “This is in response to a need for information without delay where terrorist activities are involved”. Obviously we welcome the Prime Minister’s commitment to fighting terrorism, but are Jersey and all the other dependencies actually going to provide beneficial ownership information or not?

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...many of us are spending a lot of time encouraging young people to ensure that they are registered to vote. It is their future that is at stake. Everyone in this House understands the risks posed by terrorism. This city, London, has experienced it before, as have other cities here and around the world. We will of course support strong measures to give the police and security services the...

Report of the Iraq Inquiry (6 Jul 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...and society. As the report indicates, the occupation fostered a lethal sectarianism that turned into a civil war. Instead of protecting security at home or abroad, the war fuelled and spread terrorism across the region. Sunday’s suicide bomb attack in Baghdad that killed over 250 people, the deadliest so far, was carried out by a group whose origins lie in the aftermath of the invasion....

Report of the Iraq Inquiry (6 Jul 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...not only turned a humanitarian crisis into a disaster, but it also convulsed the entire region, just as intervention in Libya in 2011 has sadly left the country in the grip of warring militias and terror groups. The Iraq war increased the threat of terrorism in our own country, as Baroness Manningham-Buller, former head of MI5, made clear to the inquiry. There are many lessons that need to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Mar 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: the Police Federation reveals that 55% of serving police officers say that their morale is low because of how their funding has been treated. Frontline policing is vital to tackling crime and terrorism, but there are 20,000 fewer police officers and 12,000 fewer officers on the frontline than there were in 2010. I ask the Prime Minister again: will she think again about the cuts in...
