  • Jeremy Corbyn response to the Queen's Speech

    Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, responding in the House of Commons to the Queen’s Speech, said:

    By tradition at the beginning of each parliamentary session we commemorate the Members of the House we have lost in the last year.

    Sadly, Mr Speaker, this year we must also mark the passing of those we have lost in the horrific events of recent days and weeks.

    The fire at Grenfell Tower in west London has killed at least 79 people. What makes it both a tragedy and an outrage is that every single one of those deaths could have been avoided. Something has gone horrifically wrong. The north Kensington community are demanding answers and they are entitled to them.

    Thousands of people living in tower blocks around the country need urgent reassurance and the emergency services, especially the Fire & Rescue Service in this case, deserve our deep respect and support.
