[Mike Gapes in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Male Suicide and International Men’s Day (19 Nov 2015)

Liz McInnes: ...about this issue. I, too, am greatly concerned about male suicide, and that is why I came to this debate. He speaks very knowledgably about the rates of male suicide, but is he aware that young gay men are six times more likely to take their own life than their straight male counterparts?

Business of the House (19 Nov 2015)

Chris Bryant: ...ill health starts before the age of 14. It also refers to the stigma of mental ill health as the greatest battle of all. Today is international men’s day, and it is a sad fact that suicide is still the biggest killer of men between the ages of 20 and 49 in England and Wales. Young gay men are six times more likely than their straight counterparts to take their own lives. Is it not...

Opposition Day — [10th Allotted Day]: The Economy (18 Nov 2015)

Cat Smith: ...163;910 a year pay increase next April, but will still lose 1,754.20 because of the tax credit changes. Housing benefit is no longer paid until people are 21, and with one in four homeless people being lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, that is hitting hardest those who identify as LGBT. According to today’s figures from the Office for National Statistics, the gender pay...

Human Rights: UK Application — Question (18 Nov 2015)

Lord Lexden: Why should my gay friends in Belfast be denied the right to marry one another if they wish to do so, while my gay friends in London can exercise that right? The first civil partnership in the United Kingdom took place in Belfast, but a same-sex marriage is impossible there. Has the time not come to review the scope and extent of the so-called Sewel convention, under which this wholly unfair...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: G20 and Paris Attacks (17 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ...happened and have come back, rightly disillusioned by the butchery of those people—their hatred of people with different ways of life and the appalling way they treat women as sex slaves and throw gay people off the top of buildings—can be some of the most powerful voices saying, “Those are not people we can deal with. Those are people we have to finish.”

Scottish Parliament: Motion of Condolence (17 Nov 2015)

Ruth Davidson: ...from our lives and from our world—are freedoms that we will not give up willingly. The plurality, diversity and creativity of free nations stand in stark contrast to those who would murder aid workers, throw gay men from buildings or stone women in the public square. Our resolve must be to use hard and soft power to protect those freedoms. Both will be vital in showing that we have...

Business of the House (5 Nov 2015)

Chris Bryant: ...Bill, and that therefore their lordships are perfectly entitled to vote on them, even if we are not allowed to? Several hon. Members, including my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea West (Geraint Davies), have been campaigning to end the scandal of gay conversion therapies. As the hon. Member for Finchley and Golders Green (Mike Freer) said in the debate he secured on the subject in...

Church Commissioners: Jeremy Pemberton (5 Nov 2015)

Ben Bradshaw: ..., a job which by all accounts he did superbly, because of the discriminatory approach of the Church of England. Particularly when we are celebrating the democratic election of the first openly gay, married priest to the General Synod, this is a ridiculous situation.

Arctic Committee Report — Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2015)

Lord Addington: ...make a short speech. There was, if not a water cooler moment, a coffee queue moment when a 23 year-old German research student said to me, “Why are you wearing flowers on your lapel? Is it something to do with gay rights?”. That was an interesting conversation which may not add very much to our deliberations, but it goes to show that any time spent in such a conference lets you...

Gay Conversion Therapies — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (3 Nov 2015)

Jane Ellison: ...Golders Green (Mike Freer) for initiating this debate on this important issue. Let me start by wholeheartedly agreeing with his opening premise. The Government do not believe that being lesbian, gay or bisexual is an illness to be treated or cured. We are concerned, therefore, about the issue of so-called gay-to-straight conversion therapy and we have consistently spoken out against the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Marriage Equality (2 Nov 2015)

Caitriona Ruane: ...we have heard are the family values arguments. My message to those people is: do not insult families. Families come in all shapes and sizes. We have one-parent and two-parent families. We have gay and straight families. We have extended families. We have children who are fostered and adopted. We have families who have come from countries throughout the world. Yes, I am a huge...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Burma: LGBT People (30 Oct 2015)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: We are aware of cases of discrimination and abuse against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in Burma and the use of legislation, such as the 1945 Police Act, to restrict the fundamental rights of the LGBT community, and the 1860 Penal Code which criminalises consensual same-sex relations. Together with partners in the international community, we continue to press Burma to...

Business of the House (29 Oct 2015)

Chris Bryant: finances dry. Talking of Hallowe’en, in Scotland it is a time for guising, when people go around disguised in fancy dress. Has the hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire (Heidi Allen) not exposed the fact that however hard the Prime Minister has tried to dress up the Tory party, hugging the gays and marrying huskies, the truth is that compassionate Conservatism is dead? All...
