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,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Foreign Affairs and International Development (15 May 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...poor, extremely corrupt and, to some extent, dominated by drug users, and the streets of our country have not been made any safer. Like many other countries, we have passed a series of anti-terror laws that are draconian to say the least. We have to learn a lesson about what intervention means and what the war on terror, inspired by George Bush in 2002, means for Afghanistan, Iraq and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Victims and Witnesses Strategy (30 Jan 2012)

Jeremy Corbyn: There are many people who are victims of crime, but no prosecution follows because they are victims of racist harassment, neighbourhood terrorism or domestic violence. There is a problem of getting independent witnesses and therefore getting a prosecution. Within the context of the reforms, is the Secretary of State prepared to consider enhanced funding and support for professional witness...

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...

Devolved Administrations (Armed Forces Covenant Reports): New Clause 4 — Status of Director and Lord Chancellor (2 Nov 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: The right hon. Gentleman is making a strong point. However, the Guildford Four were actually the first people to be arrested and convicted under the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974, which meant that they were specifically denied access to anyone at the time of arrest. That was not the case with the Birmingham Six, who instead were abused in the police station.

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Benchers in this respect—we should at least have a 12-month review. One has to remember the atmosphere in this House in which we considered the question of special legislation. The Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was passed after the Birmingham pub bombings. They were appalling, they were disgraceful, and in that fevered atmosphere the House passed that Act, which...

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...

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 — Health: Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill (7 Jun 2011)

Jeremy Corbyn: I should first apologise to the House for missing the Home Secretary’s introductory speech, but I have been present for the rest of the debate. I welcome this opportunity to discuss anti-terrorism law. I think I am the only Member currently in the Chamber who has been here long enough to have voted against the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, which was seen at the time as the low point in...

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...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...-city community constituency, as do many other colleagues, and I am very proud to represent that area. The events of 2001, the invasion of Afghanistan, the invasion of Iraq, the Bush-led war on terror, the axis of evil speech and similar things have had an enormous effect on community relations. They have also generated a degree of Islamophobia within our society and continue to do so,...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: In my right hon. Friend’s years in the Home Office, in which he must have been involved in many discussions about anti-terrorism legislation, how much consideration was given to the implementation of the criminal law in open court rather than the creation of a series of special courts, special measures and all the suspicion that surrounds them?

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...

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...

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...

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...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...-has come up to me and said that. Indeed, there is a sense of grievance among the Muslim community in Britain, partly because of this war but partly because of the substantial amounts of anti-terror legislation that have been a product of the war. They feel much less secure than they did in the past and much more isolated from the rest of the community. We should bear it in mind that...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: Everybody wants protection from terrorism. Everybody wants protection from insecurity. My point is that our presence-the presence of British troops-in Afghanistan, and formerly in Iraq, has not made the streets of this country safer. The anti-terror legislation is often seen as intrusive. We should use the criminal law against people who commit criminal acts, rather than promoting large...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...be 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.

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...
