Regulation of the Private Rented Sector: New Clause 10 — Fees for criminal record certificates etc (15 Oct 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...miscarriages of justice was ever in favour of the bombing and killing of civilians in any circumstances; we were, however, in favour of justice. The first person arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was Paul Hill, one of the Guildford Four, who had been a constituent of my constituency before I was elected, but was in prison when I was elected. Meeting...

International Criminal Court Bill [Lords] (Programme) (No. 2): Consideration and Third Reading (10 May 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., there was no special process for Chile and Cambodia and in many, many cases throughout the world. However serious we are about eliminating the main perpetrators of murder, human rights abuses and terrorism against whole civilian populations, we must acknowledge that the passage of the Bill will not solve all those problems. However, at least it is a step forward and offers a forum in...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...people in Brazil campaigned honourably for a long time to protect the rain forest in a sustainable way and to preserve their way of life. At various times, their methods have been described as terrorism against the state of Brazil, because they prevent what some perceive as legitimate economic activity and others perceive as disastrous for the rain forest. Many people in this country have...

Regulation of the Private Rented Sector: New Clause 10 — Fees for criminal record certificates etc (15 Oct 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...vilification that gets it wrong. We should not be too holier than thou in this country as we already have a considerable number of people held indefinitely under immigration law, and we have anti-terror laws that I believe are highly questionable in many ways when it comes to justice. I hope that the Minister will explain in his reply exactly how a serious campaign on a miscarriage of...

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...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...—as have British citizens living across the continent of Europe—our place in the world and our participation and co-operation in Europe-wide projects on issues as vital as security, counter-terrorism and climate change. Our job must be to bring people together. No matter how anyone in this House campaigned in the referendum, we cannot wish away the votes of 17 million people who voted...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...imprisoned or abused, or if it is likely that they would suffer such a fate if they went back, we have a clear duty of protection to them under international law. Under the procedures of anti-terror legislation, someone who is suspected of terrorist activity or of harbouring plans for such activity can be detained virtually indefinitely under immigration law. Under the memorandums of...

Backbench Business — Nato (4 Jul 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...are dead. Drone aircraft are operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and there is a real threat to the civil liberties of everyone in the world from Guantanamo Bay, extraordinary rendition and anti-terror legislation. That has not made the world a safer or more secure place.

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...history and that there is no complicity whatsoever. I also ask the Home Secretary to think through the implications of what hon. Members are saying. None of us likes bombing. None of us supports terrorism. None of us wants violence. The end game to violence and to achieving peace is a political process, giving people and their organisations the political space to argue and debate. The...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., it is up to the Home Secretary to convince people that the difficulty or emergency exists. I cannot speak for everybody, but many people in my constituency have suffered under the prevention of terrorism Act in the past. Many people now recognise that the PTA is obsolete and unnecessary legislation and a denial of civil liberties. The Bill is a further denial of civil liberties and the...

G20 (10 Jul 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the world. Amid the uncertainty of Brexit, conflict in the Gulf states, nuclear sabre-rattling over North Korea, refugees continuing to flee war and destruction, ongoing pandemics and cross-border terrorism, poverty, inequality and the impact of climate change are the core global challenges of our time. Just when we need strong government, we have weakness from this Government. The US...

Middle East (7 Jun 2006)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Palestine. It does not. One side has nuclear weapons and F-16 jets, and is high-security in every sense, while the other has very little indeed. Is it surprising that some people are driven to terrorism? I remember very well a discussion that my hon. Friend and I had when we visited Gaza a few years ago. I have been there since, but on that visit, we put it plainly that we thought that...

Afghanistan (29 Oct 2008)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the war. We have thus suffered a serious loss of liberties. That applies not just to the people who unfortunately ended up in Guantanamo Bay, but to every country that has pursued the absurd war on terror. These things are dangerous, and they go on for a long time. The war has now actively spread over into Pakistan and we have the ludicrous situation that occurred a couple of weeks ago:...

Easter Adjournment (31 Mar 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...places to draw attention to it and is a writer of plays and so on. We have to ask ourselves how an innocent man ended up in Guantanamo Bay, other than through the atmosphere created by the war on terror by George Bush and others before 2003. Then we have to ask ourselves about how we get to the truth of these matters, and this is what I want to conclude with. The truth about these matters...

Horn of Africa (26 Jan 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...much higher degree of involvement is needed. I conclude by differing with the hon. Member for The Wrekin. The beginning of his contribution seemed to be almost a counsel of despair that the war on terror must be pursued all over the place. I do not think that it has been overwhelmingly successful in either Iraq or Afghanistan. It certainly has not been successful in bringing about a...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 6 — Training for Terrorism (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...which would improve clause 8. My final point applies to the whole Bill. The tenor of the Bill is to try to charge people as widely as possible with advocacy of, preparation for or association with terrorism, which will alienate large numbers of people who already feel quite alienated from normal British society. Many young Muslims who live in inner-urban areas already feel alienated. Are...

Deferred Divisions: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (4 Jul 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...upon Hull North (Diana Johnson), who speaks on behalf of the Opposition. I feel that we should be cautious when we proscribe any organisation. As the Minister pointed out, the effect is that anti-terrorist law rather than normal criminal law applies to that organisation, not just in this country but in other countries. It almost ends up criminalising entire communities, as my right hon....

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Prohibition on Promotion of Homosexuality: Bullying (25 Jul 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of the day, and the effect outside Parliament. Homophobic bullying was given easy passage, which resulted in the isolation and punishment of many young gay and lesbian people, who were left in terror. Ask anyone who works with organisations such as Childline about that period and what has happened since then, and they will say the same. There is no division of opinion among Labour Members...

Privilege: Backbench Business — [3rd Allotted Day] — UK Armed Forces in Afghanistan (9 Sep 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the then Secretary of State for Defence, Geoffrey Hoon, said that he would set out the aims of the mission. He said: "We aim to do everything possible to eliminate the threat posed by international terrorism, to deter states from supporting, harbouring, or acting complicitly with international terrorist groups, to reintegrate Afghanistan as a responsible member of the international...

Business without Debate — Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Schedule 2 — Consequential provision (7 Mar 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...in over many years, most of which have centred on withholding evidence, secrecy or, in some cases, confessional evidence. Since 2001, there has been a significant game change. Draconian anti-terror laws have been introduced in this country and many others. As a result, the most grotesque miscarriages of justice have taken place, including Guantanamo Bay and extraordinary rendition. All the...
