Clause 5: England and Wales (2 Sep 1998)

Jeremy Corbyn: I can see the point that the right hon. Gentleman is trying to make about terrorism, but it is not good enough simply to insert the word "terrorist" without trying to define what that is. We have discussed before the difficulty in defining the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter, depending on the regime, on one's perception of it and on whether one agrees with it, among other...

Business of the House (14 Jun 1984)

Jeremy Corbyn: When is the Home Secretary likely to make a statement on the operation of the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act? Is the Leader of the House aware that one of the candidates for the European Assembly, Mr. Danny Morrison, is subject to an exclusion order under that Act and is therefore unable to travel to England, Wales or Scotland? Why has not the Home Secretary replied to...

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Colombia (7 Feb 1990)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Minister agree that in addition to the appalling terror perpetrated on the people of Colombia by the drug barons, there is also a serious problem of human rights abuses by the police and armed forces against human rights workers, peasant leaders and trade unionists? When he next meets the Government of Colombia will he press upon them the real concern of many people round the world...

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 — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: European Convention on Human Rights (19 Jun 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...hon. Gentleman, but I cannot help him by describing what the Liberal Democrats are doing today, because I am not responsible for them. However, having been involved in a lot of human rights, anti-terrorism and immigration debates over the many years I have been in Parliament, I know that there are different allies in different Parliaments. Sometimes there are Conservatives one agrees with,...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill: Terrorism: Interpretation (10 Jul 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am sure that my hon. Friend will appreciate that this is an important point about which several of my hon. Friends and I are concerned. Can he assure us that if some rogue prosecution for terrorism should be mounted against an organisation such as Greenpeace—as my hon. F the Member for Walsall, North (Mr. Winnick) suggested—the Government would not pursue that prosecution? If there was...

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill (19 Nov 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...those planning or perpetrating criminal acts? Many people are deeply disturbed about this piece of emergency legislation, and believe that it will be no more effective than the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974. Peace eventually came to Ireland through a political process, not a legal process.

Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: New Clause 3 — Expiry and repeal of TPIM powers (5 Sep 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...going down this endless route of special legislation? I have been in this House long enough to have voted against most of these pieces of legislation, starting with the renewal of the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974. I did so because it departed from the criminal law and essentially involved the executive powers of Ministers, which I am sure she will agree is a...

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...

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill (7 Jun 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank my right hon. Friend for giving way again. Does he not accept that there is a major concern about anti-terrorism legislation with special courts and special advocates, and in which information is withheld from the defendant? The barrister acting on behalf of the defendant is not allowed to reveal to them the nature of the evidence or the case against them. Therein lies a road to...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Bill (19 Nov 1990)

Jeremy Corbyn: Many people are concerned about the operation of the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act. Does the Secretary of State think it right that those who have been before the courts in this country, originally arrested under that Act and subsequently released by the court because no case was found against them, should be made the subject of a banishment order signed by the Secretary...

Counter-terrorism (8 May 1992)

Jeremy Corbyn: Does the Home Secretary accept that there have been some monstrous miscarriages of justice as a result of the operation of the prevention of terrorism Act, such as that of the Guildford Four? What assurances can he give us that undercover operations by the security services will not in themselves lead to further serious miscarriages of justice because of the lack of accountability of those...

Employment Retention: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (3 Mar 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: My right hon. Friend will recall the many debates that used to be held about the continuation of the prevention of terrorism Acts, which were routinely renewed every six months, in which everybody said that they were against it and deeply reluctant, but went ahead and did it nevertheless. Eventually the error of their ways was seen and there was a different approach, a different attitude and...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill: Clause 1 — Encouragement of Terrorism (15 Feb 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Sri Lanka and frequently wish to hold meetings to discuss it. Under the Bill, people attending those meetings could be construed to be supporting the Tamil Tigers and therefore glorifying a form of terrorism. Does my Friend accept that that would present a real danger for the people in that community, and that it would have the effect of reducing or preventing legitimate public debate...

Ireland (Joint Declaration) (15 Dec 1993)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Gerry Adams, the leader of the Sinn Fein? In the spirit of expanding democracy in Northern Ireland and in the whole country, what consideration has he given to the repeal of the prevention of terrorism Act, to a lifting of the ban on Gerry Adam's movements to this country and to the ending of the broadcasting ban on Sinn Fein so that the peace process may be further hastened in Northern...

Carers (Identification and Support): Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (14 Jul 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: sensible to give a signal that we intend to reduce the length of pre-charge detention, by decreasing it to 14 days today rather than reaffirming the 28-day order? We reaffirmed the prevention of terrorism Acts throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Every time we said that the matter would be re-examined. Maybe this time, we should do something.

Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security (25 Feb 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: To take things slightly further forward, after the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was introduced, about 10,000 people were arrested. Few were charged and hardly any were convicted, but as far as I am aware they were all Irish people, so the Act had a huge effect on the Irish community. I am sure that my hon. Friend has read the briefing that Liberty sent out for the...

Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill: New Clause 3 — Expiry and repeal of TPIM powers (5 Sep 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: I welcome the inquiry that is to be undertaken by my right hon. Friend’s Committee. May I ask him also to consider the fact that the country has had renewable emergency anti-terrorism legislation for 37 years, that the legislation has always been renewed six-monthly, annually or after whatever period has been specified, and that on each of those occasions we have moved further from the...
