and should immediately have talks with all the leaders of the opposition party. best work together to listen to the voices of the parliamentarians. there is no support for this deal. it must come back again. the right thing to do, suspend article 50. put this to the people so. >> on wednesday, prime minister theresa may discussed future plans for the brexit deal during her w weekly question time period. she talked about funding for the national health service and local police services. this is 45 minutes. >> order. questions to the prime minister. charlie l fix. -- charlie. >> ok, mr. speaker. pm theresa may: i ensure the whole house will join me in condemning the appalling attack in nairobi and in sending my
thoughts and prayers to all those who have lost loved ones. our high commissioner has confirmed one british fatality and we are providing assistance to british nationals affected by the attack. we stand in solidarity with the government and people of kenya and will continue to offer our support to meet the challenge for security and stability posed by terrorism in the region. this morning, i've had meetings with others in this house. you, mr. speaker. may i join with the prime minister in her strong condemnation of terror, and you will know, mr. speaker, that i believed in more jobs, lower taxes, a stronger economy, more investment in the public service . since 2010, the conservative government has delivered time and again for the british people , and the biggest threat to that
is from the opposition front bench for a leader whose giving us ae been weaker economy and must investment -- less investment. pm theresa may: my honorable friend is absolutely right. moreve seen 3.4 million jobs under the conservative government. that is more people earning an income, earning a wage, able to provide for the family -- their families. more barring, moremore barring,e spending, fewer jobs. >> jeremy corbyn. >> thank you, mr. speaker, thank you. let me start by correcting the record. last night, i suggested this was the largest government defeat since the 1920's. i would not want to be accused of misstating the house.
informed thateen it is the largest ever defeat for a government in the history of our democracy. >> mr. speaker, shortly after the prime minister made her point of order last night, her spokesperson suggested governments had ruled out any form of custom senior and with the european union as part of a reaching out exercise. can the prime minister confirm that is the case? what i indicated last night is, as i said, about listening to the use of the house, wanting to understand the views of parliamentarians so we can identify what could command the support of this house and deliver on the referendum, and what the government wants to do is first of all to ensure that we deliver on the results of the the europeaneaving union, and we want to do it in a way that ensures we respect the votes of those who voted to
leave and that referendum. that means ending free movement, getting a fairer deal for farmers and fishermen, and it means opening up new opportunities to trade with the rest of the world and keeping good time with our neighbors in europe. >> the question was about the customs union. the prime minister seems to be in denial about that just as much as she is in denial about the decision made about the house last night. i understand this secretary told business leaders on a conference call last night that we cannot have no deal for all the reasons you have set out. can the prime minister now reassure the house, businesses, and the country, and confirm that is indeed the government's position that we cannot have no deal? pm theresa may: the point the business sector is making that he has made -- secretary is making that you have a deal. i will give this.
i will say this to the right honorable gentleman. there are two ways of avoiding no deal. the first is to agree to a deal and the second would be to revoke article 50. that would mean staying in the , failing toon respect the result of the referendum, and that is something this government will not do. not --prime minister has continues to spend 4.2 billion dollars of public money on a new deal scenario. can't you understand, yesterday, the house rejected her deal. she needs to come up with something different than that. mr. speaker, it is not just on brexit that this government is failing.
people are ining poverty. half a million children in poverty compared to 2010. povertydation confirms driving faster than the overall employment rate. , can therty rising prime minister tell us when we can expect it to fall for the time she remains in office? pm theresa may: we now see one million fewer people in absolute .overty that is a record low. we see 300,000 fewer children in absolute poverty. that is a record low. we see a record low in the number of children in this household and income inequality, income inequality, lower than at any point under the last labour government. that is conservatives delivering for this country. what would we see for the labour party? 1000 million pounds more in
farming in taxes, 35,000 pounds for every household in this country. to deliveror failing for working people because working people always pay the price of the labour party. >> jeremy corbyn. in denial on a customs union, in denial on no deal, in denial on last night's results, and even the u.n. reporter on poverty says the government is -- mr. speaker. speaker, it is very telling, very telling in the, that as soon as i mentioned the report of the u.n. rob porter -- reporter who said the government yas in a state of denial, tor mvps start jeering. they have failed on children's
education. can the prime minister tell us what is their greatest failure? is it bad education and funding by $7 billion? or that the adult skills budget lashed by 45%? pm theresa may: hundreds of preschools have reformed curriculums. millions more children in outstanding schools, narrowing the attainment gap. are delivering the education our children needs for their future. i say to the right honorable gentleman, he talks about being in denial. the only person in denial is him because he is consistently -- has consistently failed to set out what his policy on brexit is. i said to him last week that he might do with a lip reader. when it comes to brexit policies, the rest of us need a
mind reader. mp corbyn: the prime minister is very well aware that we want there to be a customs union with the e.u. she seems to be in denial about that. one of the problems she has is the flagrant disregard for statistics and the statistics authority has written the department of education four times to express their concern about the use of dodgy figures ministers. when police officers told the then home secretary not to make more cuts to police, the home secretary accused them of crying wealth. with fewer police officers and rising crime across the country, does the prime minister except that they got it wrong? -- that they got it wrong? pm theresa may: as we look at , we recognizeing
the need to take action. that is why we are going to use the offensive weapons belt and secretaryll and my has a strategy. we are making nearly one billion times more available to police forces over the next year. i also say to the right honorable gentleman, yet again, in all these questions about public services, he only ever talks about the money that is going in. ist matters with the police the powers that we give them as well. what was it? what was it? when we came to the issue of night crime, when we came to the issue of taking more action on knife crime and the criminals involved in knife crime, when we said they should be sent to prison, what did the right honorable gentleman do? he voted against it. he does not support our police, and he does not support our security. >> here, here. >> jeremy corbyn. mp corbyn: it was a labour
government that brought in safer neighborhoods. government toor brought in a safer police force. ask anyone on any street around this country, do they feel safer now than they did eight years ago? i think we on the what the answer would be. it was that home secretary that not only attacked the police, but also created the hostile environment and the scandal. she promised to tackle burning injustices. she has made them worse, as ush showed. there is more homelessness, more children in poverty, more older people without care, longer waits at a&e, fewer nurses, rising crime, less safe streets and cuts to children's education. this government have failed our country. it cannot govern cannot command , the support of most people on facing the most important issue at the moment, which is brexit. they failed again and lost the vote last night. isn't it the case, mr. speaker, that with every other previous
prime minister faced with the scale of defeat last night would , they would have resigned, and the country would be able to choose the government they want? >> here, here. pm theresa may: the right honorable gentleman in his , peroration, talked about the importance of the issue of brexit that is facing this country. later today we will have the , no-confidence debate. he has been calling for weeks for a general election in this country, and get on sunday, when he was asked in a general election whether he would , campaign to leave the european union, he refused to answer. not once, not twice, not three times, but five times, he refused to answer. so on what he himself describes as the key issue facing this country, he has no answer. the leader of the opposition has -- the leader of the opposition has let antisemitism run riot in
his party. >> here, here. pm theresa may: he would abandon our allies, weaken our security and wreck our economy, and we , will never let that happen. mr. goodwill! mr. goodwill: the prime minister will be aware of the sirius minerals project in my constituency, which is already employing about 1000 people and is set to boost british exports by 2 billion pounds. from her visits to china, where she met the company's customers, she will know how important its polyhalite fertiliser product can be around the world. the company is currently seeking a treasury guarantee to complete its financing. does the prime minister agree with me that this is precisely the sort of project the government should be supporting to show our commitment to the northern powerhouse and the industrial strategy? >> here, here. pm theresa may: can i say to my right honorable friend, i want
to thank him in making this because i was particularly , pleased to meet the ceo of sirius during my trip to china and talk to people there about the work that they are doing. it is, as he says, exactly projects like this, which drive investment and exports in the north, that are what the northern powerhouse is all about. in relation to the particular discussions my right honorable friend mentioned, i am sure he will understand these are commercially sensitive, so it would be inappropriate for me to comment on the specific discussions. but this, as i say, is exactly the sort of project that the northern powerhouse is all about driving investment, , driving exports. good for the north. >> ian blackford. mr. blackford: thank you. may i associate myself with the remarks of the prime minister on the atrocity in kenya and, of course, our solidarity with the people there? mr. speaker yesterday, the , attorney general said that any new deal would be much the same as the one already on the table. we know that the european union will not renegotiate. if the prime minister survives today to bring forward her plan
b, will she concede that plan b will basically be a redressing of plan a? >> here, here. pm theresa may: as i said in one of my answers to the leader of the opposition, what we want to do, following the defeat that we had in this house last night, is listen to parliamentarians and find out the point of which, what is it that would secure the support of this house? that is the question that we will be asking, but that is against the background of ensuring that we deliver on the referendum result, that we leave the european union and we recognise what people were voting for when they voted in that referendum result -- an end to free movement, ensuring that we could have our own trade policy with the rest of the world, be fairer to our farmers and fairer to our fishermen, but maintain that good relationship with our neighbours in the eu. >> ian blackford. mr. blackford: mr. speaker, i am afraid that simply did not answer the question. will not renegotiate.
the prime minister has no answer. she has failed. what an omnishambles from this government, suffering a historic and a humiliating defeat the , worst for any u.k. government. westminster is in chaos, but in scotland, we stand united. mr. speaker scotland voted , overwhelmingly to remain, and we will not allow our country to be dragged out of the european union or brought down by this toryent government -- government. the prime minister knew that this deal was dead since chequers, she knew it was dead when she moved the meaningful vote, and she knows, as we all know, that last night was the last straw. the prime minister must now seek the confidence of the people, not simply the confidence of this house. the only way forward is to extend article 50 and ask the people of scotland and of the united kingdom whether they want the prime minister's deal or they want to remain in the european union. mr. speaker the prime minister
, now must legislate for a people's vote. >> here, here. as the righty: honorable gentleman knows, and as i have said before, this house legislated for a people's vote. it legislated for a people's vote that was held in 2016, and that vote determined that the united kingdom should leave the european union. he talks about "our country." our country is the whole of the england,ngdom -- scotland, wales, and northern ireland. and it is for the whole of the united kingdom that we will be looking for a solution that secures the support of this house and ensures that this parliament delivers on the vote of the people. >> here, here. >> dear mila for a -- jeremy lefroy. mr. lefroy: thank you. on behalf of all the members of
the all-party parliamentary group on kenya, which i chair, and my honorable friend the , member for mid derbyshire (mrs latham), the prime minister's trade envoy to kenya, may i express our sincere condolences and sympathy to the president and people of kenya and encourage them in their fight against this terrorism. my right honorable friend the prime minister and her government have rightly committed very substantial extra money to the nhs, and the plan produced last week is very encouraging, but can she also look at the difference between the money given to the clinical highest ccg's and the lowest ccg's per head? we do not want funding to come down, but we do want a fairer formula for allocating money to those ccg's that receive the lowest amount of funding. nk myeresa may: i tha honorable friend for the remarks he made as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on kenya. i was pleased when i visited kenya last august to meet some of those who are working to
fight terrorism, doing very important work to bring stability and security to people in that region, and very important that is too. first of all, i thank my honorable friend for highlighting the long-term plan we have set out for the national health service. the resources allocated to ccg's reflect the needs of the population, including levels of deprivation and the age profile of the population. and changes have been made to the allocations for 2019-2020, increasing the fair share allocations for staffordshire ccg's, which i am sure he is particularly interested in, have and they will see a higher level of growth in the projects over the next five years. that difference will ensure that, over time, funding across the staffordshire and stoke-on-trent ccg's becomes fairer. the biggest cash boost in the nhs's history is enabling us to do that, and i hope that will address in the issue that my honorable friend has raised. >> peter kyle. mr. kyle the prime minister's : defeat yesterday was historic and titanic. everything has changed, and she
has to change, too. yesterday, thousands of people descended on parliament square to demand their say. nobody took to the streets to demand a norway or canada option. when she came to power, she promised that she would give people more power over their lives. if she is not going to give people the power to have a say over this deal, what was the point of that promise in the first place? >> here, here. let me say to: the honorable gentleman that cannot ignore the fact that in the 2016 referendum, the people of this country voted to leave the european union. and i believe it is a duty not just of the government but of parliament to ensure that we deliver on that. >> here, here. pm theresa may: we will be speaking to parliamentarians in my own party, the democratic unionist party, and across the house about finding a way
forward. but i say to the honorable gentleman once again a vote was , taken in 2016 and i believe it is incumbent on this parliament to deliver on that vote. >> trudy harrison. ms. harrison: thank you. friend willorable remember from her visits to copeland just how capable our nuclear community is and how proud we are of our nuclear heritage. will she consider meeting me and a small delegation of cumbrian nuclear workers to understand how important moorside is to copeland, and will she bear in mind the solutions that the centre of nuclear excellence can provide to its challenges? is a center of nuclear excellence can bring to the challenge. >> it was clear to me not only expertise and skills in the nuclear industry that are there with the population but the importance of the nuclear industry.
it will reverse the nuclear decommissioning authority and we are considering options for its future. the site remains eligible for nuclear new bills and we are committed to seeing new nuclear as part of our future energy mix. can i say to my honorable friends, to meet with her and that group to export this issue further. >> mister speaker, last night in this house after the biggest government defeat in history, the government will approach meetings with parliamentarians in a constructive spirit. it appears this means inviting people in to tell why their deal is best. and to get the deal through. apparently now, in the european union with a principal and not
a red line. if she is genuinely seeking to hear the will of this house or to hear redlines to bring parliament and the country together. >> i said in the house last night i will be talking to parliamentarians in my own party and the du p and other parts across this house and we will be looking to see what it is that can secure the support of this house but i say to the honorable lady as i said to her right honorable friend, what this house must always have in mind is the importance of delivering on the vote of the people to leave the european union. >> prime minister agree with me that if we fail to deliver on
brexit, the public sector of politicians in this country will be at an all-time low? >> i absolutely agree with my honorable friends and this is so important. i believe that if we fail to deliver on what the british people instructed us to do in the vote of the referendum, the views of the but people, of this house, of parliament and of politicians, will be asked an all-time low because they will have lost faith in politicians across the whole of this parliament. we need to deliver brexit for the british people. >> doctor blackburn. >> the prime minister may have created a brexit crisis but other crises are unfolding too.
chronic health conditions and obesity in the northeast are the higher an english region. over 65 can only expect eight years of healthy living compared to 14 in windsor and maidenhead. so why on earth is the primacy planning to cut german health budget by a massive 40% that will not only worsen the health of my constituents but also cost the nhs more on house any quality? >> of course in terms of public health funding, that would be looked at in spending review but the only action that is taken in relation to other conditions in terms of prevention that is not the case. if she looks at the long-term plan that has been announced and funded by the biggest cash in history given by this government, what she will see is an emphasis on prevention
and emphasis on ensuring people are able to lead healthier, independent lives longer. >> mister speaker, i sat through many hours on the recent debate and i did listen carefully at the extraordinary range of views expressed on all sides throughout and it did seem to me that the only clear majorities in this house, firstly against leaving with no deal, in favor of extending article 50 to give us time to sort out what it is we now propose to do, and in favor of a customs union, and some regulatory alignment, to keep all our borders between the
united kingdom and the european union open up. will the prime minister, just as i have had to accept that the majority in this house is committed to the uk leaving the european union, she must accept that she must now modify her redlines she created for herself and find a cross party majority which will be along the lines i have indicated? >> my right honorable friend started off by saying there were a number of considerable views across this house, it is precisely because of that the we will be undertaking discussions with parliamentarians and i talk about what happened last night. he talks about possible extension of article 50.
article 50 cannot be extended by the uk, had to be extended in consultation, in agreement with the european union. the government policy is we are leaving the european union on 29 march but the eu would only extend article 50 if it was clear there was a plan that was moving towards the agreed deal. that is the crucial element of ensuring we deliver on brexit, being able to get the agreement of this house to a deal that will deliver on the referendum result, leave the european union and recognize what lay behind that vote when people voted to leave. >> thank you, mister speaker. in my constituency there are roads standing derelict with high void rates, many not fit for human habitation, neglected by absentee, social behavior and crime. will trimester commit to provide funding required to the
housing master plan developed by counsel to fix these issues and if she can't do that will see please call a general election? >> can i say to the honorable dense when i haven't seen the housing plan he has referred to but of course it is this government that has put more money into affordable homes, put more money into ensuring we are seeing more homes being built and lifted the on local counsel so that local councils are also able to build more homes and the homes people want. >> tracy crouch. >> next month i and my neighboring colleagues will host our second organizations for 700 pupils with 20 schools.
does the prime minister create a skillful workforce that benefits business? >> i commend my honorable friend for the work she is doing in her constituency for the job fairs and i absolutely agree with her. it is very important young people are able to see there are different routes for their futures, different routes into the workplace and apprenticeships, an important route for young people, all the apprentices i meet say the best thing they have done is taken up an apprenticeship. we want every young person to be able to take the route through higher education or further education, the route that is right for them. >> in the 16-17, 1.2 million criminals, three of my constituents, a 40 hour contraception, thousands of babies born with deformities.
and criticized for being a whitewash. now a professor at oxford university published a review of scientific data clearly shows it does cause deformities. will trimester ensure that any responsible review does not involve the mhr way? mhr a? >> it is an important issue that has been raised by a number of members across the house and our priority always is on safety of patients and ministers are aware of the new study that has come out. we have a commitment to review any new evidence in this area and we do that, we do that with consulting independent scientific experts and leading the independent medicine and medical devices safety review, that is expected to examine what happened and we will determine what further action is needed but i reassure the honorable lady we will listen very carefully to any recommendations that come out of the review and that study will be looked at very
carefully to see what has come out of that study. >> doctor philip lee. >> does my right honorable friend since last night recognize in these complex circumstances that her role as prime minister now is to create a political environment in which solutions to the brexit conundrum can be found and not to continue with the plan expecting a different outcome? and as she also accept that if she cannot get what she wantss she will need to change her mind in order to secure public confidence? >> as i pointed out today and said last night it is precisely because we recognize that we need to understand better where it is, what it is that can command the support of this house and can secure the voice for this house that we will be looking and talking to
parliamentarians across the house, that includes parliamentarians, my colleagues, includes the democratic unionist party and parliamentarians, as my right honorable friend said, there's quite a variety of views across the house about what is right. >> mister speaker, the deal was defeated last night, is a product of our own redline. what redlines are you willing to give up to get the compromise she seeks? >> we will be as i said last night, approaching these talks in a constructive. go. underlying what we will be doing is the need to ensure that we deliver on the referendum result and we deliver brexit. >> i welcome the recent statement by the foreign office, britain must do more to
support persecuted christians. in light of that will a government review its position on the asher bb case and offer asylum in the uk so she can choose which destination she wantss to go to and not the uk asking a third country to take her in which would mean she is our responsible be to another country and that can't be right. >> i hope i can reassure my honorable friend by saying as i said previously our primary concern is the safety and well-being of her and her family. the uk high commissioner in islam about is keeping me up-to-date with developments. we've been in contact with international partners about our positive resolution in this case and a number of countries are in discussion about a possible alternative destination, once the legal process is complete. i'm not going to comment on the details of that because we do not want to compromise on her long-term safety.
on the timing, the primacy of pakistan confirmed she will remain under protection of the pakistan government until the legal process has concluded and the prime minister of pakistan supported the supreme court and promised to uphold the rule of law. what matters is ensuring we are providing for the safety and well-being of her family. >> ronnie campbell. >> the joseph rowntree foundation said in a recent survey, the 4 million in work workers are living in poverty. is another government report of nine years of the story government which has stopped being so hard and fast to the general election? >> i referred earlier to figures of people in absolute poverty at a record low under this government. >> we took a number of steps to help those people in work.
we increased the national living wage, and and to give financial help to people who are the sort of people he's talking about, and the labour party opposed that measure. >> in an article i posted in november i concluded by saying we will eventually come to a position to support the agreement and those like me who oppose it can coalesce. it could happen over several weeks though there may be more drama before we reach that point? >> we have our fair share of drama but with my right honorable friend agree it is not both sides that coalesce around an agreement but the european union.
can i urge negotiations with europe in the hope of showing flexibility? >> can i thank my honorable friend for pointing out an obvious point. what has not been raised by those talking about the discussions we have across this parliament which is i went to see what will secure the border and that will secure the support of the european union because of the agreement between two parties. as i said last night once we have those ideas from the house i will take this to the european union. >> david crosby. >> in march 2010, 8000 8148 police officers and the chief constable wanted 10,000. by june 2018 we have 6000 and the numbers are still going down.
incidents of crime are rising and is it any wonder? more importantly it is acceptable but police are failing to attend violent attacks and systematic drug dealing locations. >> i say to the honorable gentlemen, we make more money available next year, 1 billion pounds extra will be available to police forces but it isn't just about money that is available to police forces. it is about the power the police have and that is why we have been introducing the offensive weapons billing take action to make sure police have the power they need to keep a safe. >> nikki morgan. >> thank you, mister speaker. the point of order last night, the questions at this question time, but does my right honorable friend agree we need to maintain maximum flexibility if we are to build consensus
around brexit in this house? >> as i said last night we will approach the discussions we have with honorable members and right honorable members in a constructive period. the one -- as i said earlier what we do know, to retain as we are looking at those discussions to find what will secure the house is remember what we are doing is finding a way to deliver brexit and the vote of the british people. >> it is notable, the final pmq. last night after the prime minister's crushing defeat, she said eu citizens made their home here, clarity on these questions as soon as possible. mister speaker, the clarity is in the prime minister's own hands. will she so leadership that she
fell use this? .. we have said as the government and made it clear that in a new deal situation we also guarantee the right of eu citizens were living here and we stand by that. >> thank you, mr. speaker. no country has ever left the eu using article 50. i do not underestimate the challenge back in the real world is is is with the possible exception of western are extremely disappointed with last night vote and short-term investment decisions are still on hold point against the uk.
will the prime minister agree that protecting just-in-time supply chains of which my constituents jobs depend must be at the heart of any solution? >> can i i say to my audible finishes raised an important point. what did he would put last night, it did protect those just-in-time supply chain models and our position on their enforcement has not changed. today as we look ahead, today's vote backing the government today would enable us to find a way forward on brexit and on the issue she said that matter at home and insure this country has the government needs to take it forward to deliver on the referendum, and as she said ensure we are protecting the jobs not just of our constituents the jobs around the of this country. >> will the nuclear power station, 20 billion-pound uk japan trade deal on vital importance to north wales, in
northwest england, and to uk energy policy as a whole? did the prime minister discuss its difficulties with the prime minister of japan last week? and if not, why not? >> we have been working with the government of japan and yes, yi did raise the issue of this with the prime minister of japan last week. of course the company involved will be making a commercial decision in relation to this matter. they government has been a discussion with them, has been providing. we do want to be nuclear as part of our energy mix in the future. the cost of any energy provided by nuclear is that a reasonable level for the consumer. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i've recently welcomed the news from the secretary of state.
[inaudible] took part in spaces of chemical cleaning. can the prime minister join with me in congratulating that command, all the men and women who worked at the base for the times what they did to keep our country safe? >> can i say to my honorable friend i'd like to thank her for raising this issue purchase race this in her westminster hall debate. it's also important to many other members around this house. i would like to pay tribute to all the royal marines past and present who served in this. we do plan to have them remain based there, true they continue to have the required capabilities to work, live and train there and i'm delighted enjoying my honorable friend in congratulating zulu company for the hard work in keeping us safe. >> can i first of all welcome the prime minister offer across
party talks, and she will remember as we are former colleagues that my party has a record of working with others and national interest. [laughing] can i -- can i say -- can i say to her, she shouldn't even bother lifting the telephone unless she's willing to rule out categorically a new deal brexit, and unless she's willing to enter into a constructive conversation about the people vote. >> can i say to the right honorable gentleman, as i said earlier of course there are two ways of avoiding a new deal. one is to have a deal and wanted to stay in the european union. we will not be staying in the european union but i look forward to having, i'm always, pappert of constructive with party leaders who want to put the national interest first. sadly i have heard not every
national party wants to do that. >> driving off a cliff never ends well. particularly if it results in a crash and burn brexit with no deal and just substitute off find. there's another we can avoid this and that is to be realistic and extending article 50 to 50 w us to put a realistic negotiated brexit director the british people. also next to include an option to remain with the deal we already have. >> i say to my honorable friend shall not be surprised because i've said it today. i believe we should deliver on the vote of referendum in 2016, that we should be delivering brexit as i've indicated to her, she and others have talked about extending article 50. the european union would only extend article 50 in the circumstances in which it was going to be possible to come to an agreement on a deal. the talks will be having with
parliamentarians across this house will be aimed at ensuring we can find a way to secure a deal that would >> on wednesday, jeremy corbyn introduced a motion at the beginning of the vote. the prime minister city arrived. -- survived. they were leader corbyn laid out his argument for the no-confidence motion. the prime minister spoke after his remarks. this is 40 minutes. corbyn. mr. corbyn: order. we now come to the motion of no-confidence confidence in her majesty's government. the motion in the name of the leader of the opposition. the leader of the opposition to move -- mr. jeremy corbyn. mr. corbyn: thank you, mr. speaker. i moved the motion
