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...

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...

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...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...I am sure the hon. Gentleman will make a wonderful contribution when he gets to make his speech. No deal threatens peace and stability in Northern Ireland, and threatens our policing and counter-terrorism co-operation with Europe. No deal will mean food shortages and medical shortages, and it will bring chaos to our ports and transport networks. Earlier, we had a Minister at the Dispatch...

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...

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...

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 May 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., and I pay tribute to the people of Manchester for the fantastic event they held last night in Albert Square, which brought all communities across Manchester together. That is the answer to terrorism, that is the answer to threats: bring people together. In 2010, £4 billion of NHS services were outsourced to private companies. How much is it today?

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...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...by 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...

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...

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...

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?

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...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...to 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: ...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...

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...

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...

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...
