Extradition (19 Dec 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: I am in good company. I shall be brief. I rise because I was slightly concerned by the fact that when the Minister introduced the regulations, he set them in the context of the current issues of terrorism and the legislation that the House enacted last week—in my view, regrettably—to bring into effect new anti-terrorist measures. It seems that there is a danger of confusing several...

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill: Clause 21 — Suspected international terrorist: certification (12 Dec 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: No one in the House is in favour of terrorism or terrorist attacks, but many of us believe that the criminal law should be used to apprehend people who commit or who are planning to commit criminal acts. Will the Home Secretary explain why this country, almost alone in Europe, is proposing such draconian measures and derogation from human rights conventions when other countries believe that...

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 89 — Searches, examinations and fingerprinting: England and Wales (26 Nov 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...police can have a permanent record on somebody who is wholly innocent of all suspicions, and one then has to ask why any records of any sort are being kept. During the passage of the prevention of terrorism Act, many of us suspected that it was intended more to enable the police to haul people in and keep records on them than to lead to serious prosecutions. Secondly, the report of the...

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill — [1st Allotted Day]: Clause 21 — Suspected international terrorist: certification (21 Nov 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., including the PKK. Does he accept, therefore, that the police will have the powers of sweep and of arrest, even if those people are subsequently released, as many were, under the prevention of terrorism legislation. If the Bill is designed to catch international terrorists individually, why is it not drafted to do so? Why is it drafted to catch people who are merely members of...

Orders of the Day — Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Bill (19 Nov 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...those planning or perpetrating criminal acts? Many people are deeply disturbed about this piece of emergency legislation, and believe that it will be no more effective than the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974. Peace eventually came to Ireland through a political process, not a legal process.

Business of the House (25 Oct 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: May I refer the Leader of the House back to the subject of next Thursday's debate—international terrorism? He will fully understand that millions of people in this country are deeply uneasy about the continued bombing of Afghanistan and his confirmation of the reported use of cluster bombs by United States forces in that country? Does he agree that many people in this country find it...

International Terrorism (4 Oct 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...anyone from this country to anywhere where they would face the death penalty. The same applies in any other country that has abolished the death penalty. It does not help our cause in opposing any terrorist act if we reduce our own standards and diminish our own laws. We should be careful about how we label organisations. Last week, as I came away from the Muslim welfare centre in my...

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 — International Criminal Court Bill [Lords] (3 Apr 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...poorest part of that country. We should look more carefully at the reasons for conflict in the first place: the grab for land, minerals or power, which so often leads to injustice and the reigns of terror that result in the death of so many people. There are two specific areas of the Bill that I would like the Minister to deal with when he replies to the debate. The first concerns clause...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...those organisations in any detail, or to engage in any other form of parliamentary scrutiny of the legislation. The history of anti-terrorist legislation is not good. The original Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1974 was rushed through the House, and resulted in serious miscarriages of justice. The first person to be arrested in this country under the Act was Paul Hill,...

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...

Business of the House (8 Mar 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: May I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to the Terrorism Act 2000 (Proscribed Organisations) (Amendment) Order that is to be the subject of a debate under the affirmative resolution procedure next Tuesday evening? I am sure that she will recall that I raised this question with her last Thursday and asked her to consider how sensible it was to put such an order through in a...

Business of the House (1 Mar 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: My right hon. Friend will be aware that, yesterday, the Home Office published a draft statutory instrument on the prevention and suppression of terrorism, listing 21 organisations that it sought to have banned in this country. When is that measure likely to be debated in the House? My right hon. Friend will be aware also that many people have misgivings about the inclusion of certain...

Chile (6 Feb 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...when British planes were used to bomb the presidential palace, which resulted in the death of President Allende, the rounding up of large numbers of people into the national stadium, and a reign of terror, including the caravan of death. Many Members of Parliament worked tirelessly to help Chilean asylum seekers in the early 1970s. It would be wrong not to pause for a moment to remember...

Business of the House (18 Jan 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...? Will she also urge the Foreign Office and its Ministers to release all documents on Britain's relations with Chile between 1973 and 1990, and those that relate to Operation Condor, which was the terror regime that Pinochet instigated throughout southern Cone? The release of those documents will undoubtedly assist the cause of those people who seek to restore democracy and human rights to...

Orders of the Day — Football (Disorder) Bill: Commencement and Duration (27 Jul 2000)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., and what opportunity will hon. Members have to debate them? This Bill seriously and fundamentally reduces the civil liberties of British citizens. It has to be monitored, as the prevention of terrorism Acts and other legislation are. My hon. Friend the Minister did not see me when I tried to intervene before he sat down at the end of the short discussion of the previous group of...

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...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: I am sure that my hon. Friend will appreciate that this is an important point about which several of my hon. Friends and I are concerned. Can he assure us that if some rogue prosecution for terrorism should be mounted against an organisation such as Greenpeace—as my hon. F the Member for Walsall, North (Mr. Winnick) suggested—the Government would not pursue that prosecution? If there was...

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

Jeremy Corbyn: ...he replies. We were not members of the Committee that considered the Bill, and were thus unable to pursue the anxieties that we expressed on Second Reading. We were worried that the definition of terrorism in the Bill was so broadly drawn that there was a danger of its including people who were by no stretch of the imagination terrorists, but who could be defined as such in a British...

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...
