Women and Equalities: Homophobic Bullying (26 February 2015)

Emma Lewell-Buck: Is the Minister aware that Mr Gay World, Stuart Hatton, lives in my constituency? He recently launched a fantastic anti-bullying campaign called “So What?”. His message is simple: some of us are straight, some of us are gay, so what? With Stonewall reporting that nearly a quarter of lesbian, gay or bisexual pupils miss school because of homophobic bullying, his message is sorely...

Oesophageal Cancer (23 February 2015)

Mike Weatherley: ...Professor Mason had not insisted that the operation should be in April, and if he had agreed to wait until July as I wanted, it seems very likely that I would have been dead by Christmas 2012. Step up the third person I owe my life to—Andy Gaya, who was in charge of my post-operative treatments. Intensive revolutionary radiotherapy and chemotherapy followed. There were days when I...

Royal Assent: Mental Health and Well-being of Londoners (12 February 2015) See 3 other results from this debate

Jane Ellison: ...groups. I am sure that that is mirrored in other parts of London. The hon. Lady raised the challenges facing LGBT people. The National Institute for Mental Health in England carried out a review that showed that LGB people are at greater risk of suicidal behaviour and self-harm, as others have said, and that the risk of suicide is four times more likely in gay and bisexual men, while the...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Belarus (11 February 2015)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: The UK has made no direct representation specifically on behalf of Mr Tsikhanyuk. Our Embassy in Minsk supports the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in Belarus where possible. The UK regularly raises Belarus’s poor human rights record in meetings with Belarusian ministers and officials.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Gambia (11 February 2015)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: The Gambia has a poor human rights record. Rule of law, freedom of the press, extra-judicial detentions, human trafficking and recent legislation targeting Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender people are all areas of concern. The UK position on human rights is firm: human rights are universal and must apply equally to all people. Our Ambassador in Banjul regularly raises human rights with the...

Judith Cochrane: ...seek to punish it because you do not agree with it could undermine its important work on equality issues. Of course, there are other court cases that are taken with public funding, such as on the gay blood ban, and there is no suggestion from Mr Allister that funding should be removed from the Department of Health for that. Ultimately the courts will decide if they got it wrong, and...

Business of the House (5 February 2015)

Angela Eagle: ...place as half church, half museum and half school. All I can say is that this place certainly does not look like any school I ever went to, and Eton should clearly get a better maths teacher. This week marks the start of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history month when we celebrate progress on LGBT rights while recognising that we must do more to banish bigotry and discrimination....

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Report (2nd Day) (4 February 2015)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...Leicester, but extremists as referred to in the Prevent draft guidance—from the extreme right-wing. We had numerous problems and things were at times quite frightening. I also recall attacks on gay bars in London by extremists who were anti-gay. We have to be very equal and balanced when we talk about extremism. I was grateful for the comments of the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, when he...

Palestine: Recognition — Motion to Take Note (29 January 2015)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: ...its citizens to be lashed every week for expressing democratic views on a website, does not throw political opponents from the rooftops of tall buildings and does not deny the equal rights of all its citizens, including gays, Christians and Muslims. It is safe to say that these are not principles universally upheld by Israel’s neighbours and, sadly, in particular by the Palestinians....

Nia Griffith: ...have been strides forward in getting more girls into school and raising the issue of violence against girls and women, there are still huge challenges. Likewise, we need to do more to safeguard the rights of people in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities and of people who have disabilities. It is also important that we should promote the right to join a trade union, just...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Driving Licences: Union Flag (27 January 2015)

Anna Lo: ...support the motion, as a standard UK-wide licence could be acceptable. However, if people want standardisation across the UK, I look forward to the DUP changing its stance on issues such as the gay blood ban, equal marriage and the Climate Change Act, which, so far, it has rejected on the basis that we are different.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Blood Donations: Cost of Court Cases (26 January 2015)

Homeless Young People — [John Robertson in the Chair] (21 January 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Stephen Gilbert: .... Often, family breakdown has a lasting negative impact on people’s mental health. I have a constituent who was turned away by his family and booted out the door because he came out to them as gay. That had a devastating impact, and when he presented to Cornwall council as homeless and was unable to get any support, it felt like a double whammy. Ultimately, we were able to secure...

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: ...women, whether in this country, where according to Public Health England the critical 80% threshold for girls is not being met in many parts of the UK, or they may have sexual partners outside the UK. It might also be said that providing vaccination to gay men only discriminates against heterosexual men. Therefore, this question of discrimination should be looked at. The human cost of...

Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: Clause 72 - Preparation or training abroad for terrorism (20 January 2015)

Jack Dromey: ...is absolutely right that the world faces a horrific threat in Syria and Iraq, in France and Belgium and in our own country. Over the past year or two we have seen haunting images of beheadings, of gay people being thrown from towers and of women and young girls being bought and sold. On our own continent, we now see journalists massacred, police officers executed and Jewish people shot...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Cuba (20 January 2015)

Hugo Swire: ...rights with Cardinal Jaime Ortega, the Archbishop of Havana, and I also met Mariela Castro, the director of the Cuban National Centre for Sex Education in Havana and an activist on gender and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights.

New Clause 1 — Judaeo-Christian tradition (16 January 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

James Arbuthnot: ...anathema to the people listening to it. Let me give the hon. Gentleman another example, in a Christian context. What happens if the prayers call on God to grant enlightenment to those who support gay marriage? That might be anathema to some of the councillors who do support gay marriage. What should one do as a councillor in those circumstances? Should one heckle the priest or the imam?...
