Here is a fragment of a speech he gave in the commons during a welfare debate in 2014, just one of many such speeches:
Those who campaigned for—and secured—the principles of universal benefits and the welfare state throughout the 20th century, which culminated in the strong principles behind the National Assistance Act 1948, envisaged a society in which we would protect people from destitution, and would have particular concern for those with disabilities, work-related illnesses, or sicknesses that prevented them from working.
Sadly, we now have a system under which many are denied benefits to which they ought to be entitled, and who are living in destitution as a result. Some of them simply cannot cope with that, and suicide results. ………. It is incumbent on the Government to ensure that the cumulative assessment takes place, so that we can be shown the real impact of what we have done to our society over the past three years.
Jeremy Corbyn is a long time supporter of disabled people rights, not just with words but with deeds, here is just a couple of examples from 2012 and 2013 right up to this year when he was one of the MPs who were there at the Save ILF Lobby of Parliament in January
He was a co sponsor of this Early Day Motion in Parliament to save the ILF last year, and has consistently signed EDMs in favour of disabled peoples rights
Another EDM was started by Jeremy Corbyn way back in 2011 EDM 1836 “Employment Of Disabled People”, this is someone who doesn’t just say the right things at election time, he says the right things because he believes in them.
At the end of this post, is a list of all of the EDMs Jeremy Corbyn has signed, sponsored and been the primary sponsor of – its a very long list, and stands as a testament to the consistent level of support he has given to disabled people over the last five years.
If you are not a Labour member already, you can sign up to vote for a Labour Leader who has a proven track record of support for disabled people here
and there is a great website to share here – Make Labour Awesome Again – Vote Corbyn
There is another MP that needs a mention here as well, someone who has shown his unfailing and unwavering support for DPAC over the years, and has earned the love, gratitude and respect of DPAC. Yes, Mr John McDonnell MP, this is you we are talking about, thank you.
EDMs that Jeremy Corbyn has signed, sponsored and been the primary sponsor of.
An EDM (Early Day Motion) is a way that backbench MPs can register their support for a particular issue.
