Immigration: Detention — Question for Short Debate (26 March 2015)

Lord Scriven: ...parliamentary group, which has done an extremely good report on this, and my honourable friend Sarah Teather in chairing it.

It is illegal to be gay in 78 countries, punishable by prison and, in some cases, death. People seeking asylum on LGBTI grounds are in many...

Private Investigators — Question (26 March 2015)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I find the Minister’s answer incredible. The consultation that he referred to was nearly three years ago and it had the highest number of responses of any consultation except that on gay marriage. In fact, the responses were unanimous on that occasion. Does the Minister realise that fewer police officers means that private security is replacing and working alongside the...

Hugo Swire: ...for the values set out in the Commonwealth charter, which was signed by Her Majesty the Queen two years ago this month, is regrettably not consistent across the Commonwealth. Despite the work we have done to promote the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens of the Commonwealth, many, as we have heard, continue to suffer persecution.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister: Faith: Equality Commission Approach (23 March 2015)

Peter Robinson: ...treated by the Equality Commission. We live in a society where there will always be competing rights. This is not an issue of discriminating against any section of the community, in terms of the gay or lesbian community, nor is it a matter of attempting to get some special privilege for people of faith. The issue, where there are competing rights, is ensuring that there is a reasonable...

[Sir Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — backbench business — Local Newspapers (19 March 2015)

Chris Bryant: ...with the BBC in London never managing to get any further than Camden are replicated elsewhere in the country because they cannot get any further than Llanishen. I should say, however, that it is not only local newspapers that sometimes get things wrong. I remember that on one occasion the Daily Mail wrote that I was an ex-gay vicar, and it took me 20 minutes to explain that I am not an...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 March 2015)

Jack Dromey: ...of workers by the rich or those who seek to take advantage. There is but one alternative to this Government, and that is a Labour Government. UKIP? UKIP is not so much the party of the flat cap as the party of the flat-rate tax. It would privatise the national health service, drive women back into the home and gays back into the closet, and divide our country once again. My dad described...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Equality Legislation: Revised Wording (16 March 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Anna Lo: .... The DUP has long dragged its feet over publishing the sexual orientation strategy, but it readily consults on a private Member's Bill that would significantly weaken protection for lesbian, gay and bisexual individuals. The conscience clause would effectively legalise discrimination. Although equality policy is largely a devolved matter, that does not mean that we can create special...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Equality Legislation: Revised Wording (16 March 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

Edwin Poots: ...force individuals to think particular things. It is sad that the Ashers case came to the fore through a cake that was to be used by the Alliance Party's Mayor of North Down, I believe, to promote gay marriage. I am happy to be challenged on that. If someone is not in support of gay marriage, why go to their business and seek to force them to provide that support? It is wrong that...

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: ...and south Asia—the Commonwealth that would otherwise be impossible to reach. The professors told me that these scholars are bright, effective, brave people. They go back to prosecute war criminals in Kenya. They broadcast programmes on gay and lesbian rights in Uganda. Once trained in Oxford, these legal people address corruption and consumer protection in Nigeria and Ghana. Some are...
