Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill: After Clause 136 (20 Oct 1994)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...cheaply in the first place; often, conversions are done cheaply and, for that reason, there is no soundproofing or sound insulation. It means that what one family consider normal behaviour can be terrorism for the family above or below, even though such behaviour can simply be the problem of five or six-year-old children running around a flat. People who live in detached or semi-detached...

Orders of the Day — Asylum and Immigration Appeals Bill: Before clause 3 (7 Jun 1993)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of voluntary scheme. That is not satisfactory, and we shall return to the question of guaranteeing real support, real friendship and real protection for victims of the most appalling brutality and terror that exists around the world today.

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...present threat from the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg). Protecting the British people will always be our first priority. From climate change chaos, cyber-attacks and acts of terrorism to perpetual conflicts in the most fragile parts of the word, it is the Government’s duty to ensure that their approach addresses the drivers of those security challenges. As one of the...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...people are. I do not propose to discuss any of those cases; that is not the point. The point is one of principle relating to what we as a Parliament are doing. If this measure is part of the war on terror, I ask Members to remember what the hon. Member for Newark (Patrick Mercer) just said about the experience of internment in Northern Ireland. Indeed, for that matter, there is also the...

Debate on the Address: Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and Defence (23 Nov 2009)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...and safer streets in our society, but that is simply not the case. The fact that a number of young Muslims in our country are continually stopped and searched because they are perceived to be terror suspects leads not to greater cohesion, but to greater division and suspicion, in our society. The issues that unite large numbers of people in our society, particularly young Muslims, are...

Bill Presented: Northern Ireland (St. Andrews Agreement) (No. 2) Bill (27 Mar 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Unionists. I have been a Member of the House since 1983 and like many other Members I have sat here and opposed many of the pieces of legislation to do with Northern Ireland: the Prevention of Terrorism Acts, the broadcasting ban, the travel ban and all sorts of legislation designed to support the idea that there could be a military solution in Northern Ireland, which suppression of speech...

Backbench Business — [1st Allotted Day]: Mental Health (14 Jun 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...I intervened on the Minister on the question of deaths when people are in care or in custody, and I am looking forward to his response. As a society, we have to think a bit more carefully about the terror that some people live their lives in, which ends in a lonely suicide. These are people who were unable to seek help or support from anybody else, and were probably reading in the papers,...

House of Commons (Services) (10 Nov 1987)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that Mr. Bennett has not been convicted of anything, because the conviction was quashed by the Court of Appeal in 1975; it did not say that the exclusion order placed on him under the Prevention of Terrorism Act in 1978 was lifted, after a three-month trial at the Old Bailey during which he defended himself and was complimented on his ability to do so by Judge Alan King-Hamilton. The...

Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill (Programme) (No. 3): Clause 151 — Compensation for miscarriages of justice (4 Feb 2014)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Commercial Services Union group meeting but will return, I was very involved in the Birmingham and Guildford cases. Indeed, Paul Hill, who was the first person ever arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 1974, was a constituent of mine. I went through the whole business of the campaign, and eventually those people were released and compensation was paid. However, I have to say two...

Prayers: Latin America (18 Oct 1995)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...my name deploring the fact that General Pinochet visited Britain two weeks ago. Conservative Members might well smile about that, but their party was the mainstay of his regime during his reign of terror in Chile when the British Tory Government were happy to supply him with arms. I want to put on record my disgust, and the disgust of many other people, that such an evil man was allowed to...

Backbench Business — Iraq War (10th Anniversary) (13 Jun 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...to call people enemy combatants, not prisoners of war. Guantanamo Bay was set up. Extraordinary rendition took place. The Homeland Security Act was passed in the USA and a whole raft of anti-terror legislation was passed in this country. Civil rights of people all over the world were damaged by the decision to invade Afghanistan, and that was compounded later by the decision to invade...

North Africa and the Near and Middle East (28 Nov 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...in June 2011: “The commission found that arbitrary arrests—in many cases pre-dawn raids conducted by armed and masked security…forces—showed the ‘existence of an operational plan’ to terrorize protestors and opposition members. It concluded that the arrests and detentions ‘could not have happened without the knowledge of higher echelons of the command structure’ of the...

European Community (20 Jun 1985)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...support that. Because those Governments are not prepared to consider the plight of the Tamil asylum-seekers whether they are in the Netherlands or here, who are trying to get out of the fear and terror of Sri Lanka, they have introduced a system of exclusion. On 29 May, the Home Secretary introduced a visa requirement for any Sri Lankan national wishing to leave Sri Lanka and come to...

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...

Opposition Day: International Arms Trade (2 Apr 1998)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...discussed. The Chilean army was not willing to accept the democratic will of its people, and staged a coup that was successful in the sense that it murdered the President and ushered in a reign of terror that lasted for a very long time and cost the lives of very many people. We must remember that arms are made to kill people, and if they are used to abuse human rights anywhere in the...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...1992, and I knew him very well as a committed peace campaigner. On Tuesday, the Prime Minister and I remembered Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt, the wonderful young friends who died in the appalling terror attack at Fishmongers’ Hall. It is right that we pay tribute to them again today for the way in which they lost their lives and the message they left behind. I would like to take this...

Prayers: Latin America (16 Oct 1996)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...in Chile and the removal of the dictatorship, his visit is extremely welcome. Far less welcome are the strong rumours that General Pinochet is also in Britain. He is associated with the reign of terror in Chile and the destruction of human rights as well as of many Chilean trade unions and other organisations. He is here, presumably, on yet another arms buying spree. His very existence...

Adjournment (Spring) (16 May 1985)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Lankan Parliament, the Government have removed the civic rights of Mrs. Bandaranaike, the former Prime Minister. A referendum was carried out to extend the life of the Government. A Prevention of Terrorism Act, passed by Parliament, has damaged civil rights in the country. Although many people have been killed by the security forces during the present crisis, until 1984 there were no...

Orders of the Day: Foreign Affairs and Defence (12 Nov 2007)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...allegation that there were weapons of mass destruction there and because we chose to follow US foreign policy. The war has done immense damage to this country and to the USA, and it has not reduced terrorism or extremism—indeed, it has probably had exactly the opposite effect throughout the region and in the wider world. We should look a bit more seriously at how we can withdraw from...

Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Programme — [Jim Sheridan in the Chair] (12 Nov 2013)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...region. Some rather zany commentators in the US think that Iran should get nuclear weapons on the basis that it would create a regional balance and then we would move on. Balancing nuclear weapons terror is not a way to bring about peace. I thank the hon. Member for Kettering for securing the debate, which is extremely helpful. I hope the Government will get the message that preparing to...
