Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Iraq (12 Dec 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: name a date for the end of the occupation, so that the Iraq people themselves can take over the country, rather than continuing with an occupying force that seems to have brought a awful lot of terror into the country?

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 17 — Commission of offences abroad (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that genocide and torture are clearly defined offences in international law, so they can legitimately be prosecuted in this country, whereas, as he rightly pointed out, there is no definition of terrorism that can be applied either in this country or anywhere else, so the information that we would have to rely on would be subjective?

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 17 — Commission of offences abroad (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...they are being granted a place of safety. On the question of interpretation, all those who took part in the struggle in Chechnya and who sought asylum in this country from Russia have been labelled terrorists by the Russian Government, whether or not they took part in any military activity. It is a convenient label for the Russian Government to use. The same applies to those who in the...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 12 — Trespassing etc. on nuclear sites (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...wish to make on the subject. The hon. Gentleman made a serious point about for what offence the protesters would be prosecuted. The Minister referred to people entering a site for the purposes of terrorism. He will correct me if I or the hon. Member for Buckingham have misunderstood the provision, but my reading is that everyone who enters a designated nuclear site—whether a power...

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill — [2nd Allotted Day ]: Clause 12 — Trespassing etc. on nuclear sites (3 Nov 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: I listened to the Minister and I understand the amendments that have been accepted. I wrote down his words, which were "purposes of terrorism on entering the base". There were many occasions during the Greenham Common women's camp when women climbed over or cut the fence and entered the base to paint flowers on nuclear missiles and hang drapes on tanks—entirely peaceful things. Under...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...terrorist training is going on, but they know nothing about it and are training in, for example, white water rafting, they could be pulled into an incomprehensible net in which they are accused of terrorism.

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...

Support For Members Who Have Chosen Not To Take Their Seats (10 Mar 2005)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...circumstances, the latest being Robert McCartney. Every loss of life and every act of violence is a tragedy. All the sanctions and illiberal Acts that were applied in the 1970s—the prevention of terrorism Acts, the emergency powers Act, all the orders, internment, the broadcasting ban, the travel ban and all the other measures did not take matters forward very much. What started to take...

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...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: any way. I ask Members to think carefully about the kind of society that we are creating with the Bill, and about what kind of society we want to live in. The Bill will not solve crime, fraud or terrorism; it represents the comfort zone of the high-technology security industry, which will be easily hacked into. A much better form of security is protection of the individual and respect...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: Since the Home Secretary and others have made a strong case that the introduction of identity cards will somehow or other protect us from terrorism, can he explain exactly how it will do so? Since there is a very narrow gap between official identity and the production of fraudulent identity, what evidence does he have that even biometric recognition itself will not be tampered with, making...

Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security (25 Feb 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: To take things slightly further forward, after the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was introduced, about 10,000 people were arrested. Few were charged and hardly any were convicted, but as far as I am aware they were all Irish people, so the Act had a huge effect on the Irish community. I am sure that my hon. Friend has read the briefing that Liberty sent out for the...

Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security (25 Feb 2004)

Jeremy Corbyn: The right hon. Gentleman is making a most interesting contribution. In relation to all his dealings in Northern Ireland during the 1980s and 1990s, does he think that the prevention of terrorism Act did much to reduce tensions or was it the two ceasefires and the political process that achieved a modicum of peace in Northern Ireland compared with what went before?

International Affairs (27 Nov 2003)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...of its people, has in fact resulted in a lot of George Bush's cronies being able to buy up a lot of real estate very cheaply indeed. We need to think about where that will lead. The war on terror declared by George Bush after 11 September 2001 is simplistic in approach. It led us into Afghanistan, where there were 8,000 dead, and it has led us into Iraq, with all the dead there. I suspect...

Adjournment (Christmas) (19 Dec 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Iraq's borders. Since that time, what has been the policy towards Iraq? During the war in 1991, it was to bomb the country using depleted uranium weapons among many others, creating the utmost terror and misery and causing many deaths. That was followed by a sanctions regime, which should have been restricted to military and financial sanctions that could have had some effect on the regime...

International Terrorism (Indonesia) (23 Oct 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...militia took over. I do not know the death toll for the period after the referendum, but it ran into thousands. That was in addition to the 200,000 people who died during the period of Indonesian terror in East Timor from 1974. One hopes that East Timor will have a peaceful and prosperous future. East Timor is not the only place in Indonesia where there have been huge problems. I attended...

Orders of the Day — Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: New Clause 9 — Control of entry to United Kingdom, &c.: use of force (12 Jun 2002)

Jeremy Corbyn: How does the amendment apply to foreign nationals who are detained under the new terrorism legislation, which does not require any rules of evidence to give information to defendants about the reason for their detention?

Adjournment (Christmas) (19 Dec 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...fundamental injustice of the treatment of the Palestinian people and the need for an active peace process lie at the heart of much of the world's problems, especially in the context of the war on terrorism. There is a need to end the blanket support and approval of Israel's action and to promote an active peace process. The continuation of the United States campaign against terrorism...
