Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half-Day] — Iraq (31 Oct 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...carried so that we establish a committee of inquiry into all the circumstances surrounding the run-up to the war, the aftermath of the war in Iraq and what we do in future. We live in a world where terrorism has been encouraged by the invasion of Iraq, and, I believe, by the continued presence in Afghanistan. If we want to live in a world of perpetual wars throughout this century, we are...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: I will be brief, because there is very little time. We have been over the Prevention of Terrorism Act in the past. We have ritually renewed it every six months. Eventually, people began to realise that there must be some other way of doing things. As a result of post-9/11 syndrome, we passed various pieces of draconian legislation. We passed legislation allowing control orders to be imposed,...

Business of the House (26 Oct 1989)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...lawyers or anybody else during the past 15 years, and the practice of the police investigating the police when malpractice appears? We should also discuss the operation of the Prevention of Terrorism Act 1974, bearing in mind that my constituent Paul Hill has just been released after serving 15 years for a crime that he did not commit and that he was the first person to be accused under...

Business of the House (1 Mar 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: My right hon. Friend will be aware that, yesterday, the Home Office published a draft statutory instrument on the prevention and suppression of terrorism, listing 21 organisations that it sought to have banned in this country. When is that measure likely to be debated in the House? My right hon. Friend will be aware also that many people have misgivings about the inclusion of certain...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...us 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...

Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Feb 2020)

Jeremy Corbyn: We were all appalled by the terror attack in Streatham on Sunday, and I want to join the Prime Minister in paying tribute to the bravery and dedication of the police, security services and all the other emergency response staff for the way in which they dealt with a terrifying and terrible situation. Last Friday, this country left the European Union. Britain’s place in the world is at a...

Prevention of Terrorism (Additional Powers) Bill (Allocation of Time) (2 Apr 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...excessive powers to stop and search people at random. That will lead to a deterioration in relations between the police and the community. Furthermore, it will do nothing to solve the problems of terrorism, which are basically political in origin and therefore require a political solution. The sorry experience of Northern Ireland since 1969 has shown that we need something more than...

Terrorism Bill (16 Mar 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...elected Members of the Palestinian Authority to address a meeting in the House, as many of us have done over the years. Their speeches describing the situation could be construed as glorifying terrorism. I do not necessarily think that would be the case, but it could happen. We are moving into dangerous, uncharted waters with the Bill. Perverse prosecutions will bring about serious...

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...

Orders of the Day — Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (13 Mar 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...those organisations in any detail, or to engage in any other form of parliamentary scrutiny of the legislation. The history of anti-terrorist legislation is not good. The original Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was rushed through the House, and resulted in serious miscarriages of justice. The first person to be arrested in this country under the Act was Paul Hill,...

Orders of the Day — Football (Disorder) Bill: Commencement and Duration (27 Jul 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., and what opportunity will hon. Members have to debate them? This Bill seriously and fundamentally reduces the civil liberties of British citizens. It has to be monitored, as the prevention of terrorism Acts and other legislation are. My hon. Friend the Minister did not see me when I tried to intervene before he sat down at the end of the short discussion of the previous group of...

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Mar 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I start by sending my condolences to all the families and friends of victims of the terror attack in New Zealand last week. The terrible events in Christchurch should remind us all that there is no place for hate. I pay tribute to the way in which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has responded with such dignity and such compassion to this crisis. I absolutely agree with the comments of the Prime...

Business of the House (9 Feb 1989)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...take time to read early-day motion 403? [That this House questions the judgement of the North London Polytechnic governors in permitting the employment to take place of an Irishman connected with terrorism and who was convicted and imprisoned for offences related to explosives and is concerned that this person is in a position to influence young people at taxpayers' expense.] My hon....

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...

Senator Pinochet (2 Mar 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...have disappeared to explain to them personally why he thinks that that is the correct decision to take, when none of their relatives had any opportunity for any justice whatever during the reign of terror in Chile?

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 89 — Searches, examinations and fingerprinting: England and Wales (26 Nov 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...police can have a permanent record on somebody who is wholly innocent of all suspicions, and one then has to ask why any records of any sort are being kept. During the passage of the prevention of terrorism Act, many of us suspected that it was intended more to enable the police to haul people in and keep records on them than to lead to serious prosecutions. Secondly, the report of the...

Deferred Divisions: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (2 Mar 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...charged with? Oh, I cannot tell you that.” Hello? Let us get real. If we believe in a proper judicial process, let us practise a proper judicial process. I feel very reluctant to support any anti-terror law that departs from the principle that anyone who has been charged must know what the charge is, must be able to defend himself against that charge, and must be either found guilty or...

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...

Orders of the Day — Identity Cards Bill (20 Dec 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that we are being asked to accept some kind of illusion of security. We are told that there are problems in society of high levels of crime, illegal immigration, illegal working, benefit fraud and terrorism, all of which may or may not be true. Nobody from the Home Office or anywhere else, however, has managed to explain how any of those problems will be solved by the introduction of...
