[Graham Stringer in the Chair] — Asylum Support Contracts (10 Feb 2016)

Andy McDonald: .... Regarding how these properties are let, was he as amazed as I was to discover that different people can be put into a single bedroom quite inappropriately? A young man in my community who is gay and who has come to this country is having to share a bedroom with somebody who was once a member of the Taliban. Does my hon. Friend not find that an utterly ridiculous state of affairs?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (9 Feb 2016)

Maeve McLaughlin: ...GP prescribing programmes, which have been well documented in the Audit Office reports. We need to stop wasting public money on legal cases, over the ban on blood donations from members of the gay community, for example. Finally, we need to look at the genuine removal of clinical excellence awards: 55 million has been paid out in the last five years, at a time when we cannot pay an...

[Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Preventing Violence Against Women: Role of Men (4 Feb 2016)

Karen Bradley: ...violence, forced marriage or stalking. It is also important that the response for all victims is as good as it can be. The hon. Member for Lanark and Hamilton East (Angela Crawley) talked about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender relationships. We realise that there is abuse in all forms of relationship and the measures we have in place are available in all forms of abuse in all...

Business of the House (4 Feb 2016)

Chris Bryant: we know—the Loones back the Prime Minister. As far as I can see, the only people Leave.EU hates more than the EU are Vote Leave. And Grassroots Out, of course. Oh, and then there is Better Off Out, which I thought was a gay organisation but apparently is not, and is a completely different organisation from Get Britain Out, which also is not a gay organisation....

Written Answers — Department of Health: Health: Young People (2 Feb 2016)

Cat Smith: ...What About YOUth survey, published 8 December 2015, what assessment he has made of the findings of that survey; and if he will commission further research on the health behaviour of young lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Act 2004 (Update) (28 Jan 2016)

Marco Biagi: Scotland has a good record in that area. In 2015, Scotland was ranked by ILGA-Europe—the European region of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association—in its rainbow map as the most inclusive country in Europe for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex equality, as a result of meeting 92 per cent of the organisation’s 45 criteria....

Scottish Parliament: Homophobic, Biphobic and Transphobic Bullying (28 Jan 2016)

Jim Eadie: The minister will be aware that there are still lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people in Scotland who are afraid to go to school because of their fear of being bullied. What more can the Scottish Government do to ensure that all teachers are fully equipped to tackle bullying wherever it takes place, be that in the classroom or the playground, and that every school in the country...

Syrian Refugees: Resettlement — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (27 Jan 2016)

David Burrowes: ...most vulnerable groups. The Select Committee on International Development, which is chaired by my predecessor in my constituency, the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg), produced an excellent report. It identified, as NGOs have, that the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community, religious minorities and children are the most vulnerable and are...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit and Supported Housing (27 Jan 2016)

Yvonne Fovargue: ...people, saving them from going into hostels, which are not always the appropriate environment. For example, a young man came to see me whose parents had thrown him out when they found out he was gay. They had also emptied his bank account. All I could find for him was the local Salvation Army hostel, which was not a safe place for him at that time. A further 100 units of homelessness...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (26 Jan 2016)

Lord Rosser: ...decision by the Home Secretary to refer the issue of poppers for further consideration by expert bodies, do we really want to create a new possession offence in respect of a substance which is popular in some sections of the gay community, has been used recreationally in Britain for more than 30 years and has not so far been banned by any Government, given the likelihood that within the...

Scottish Parliament: Holocaust Memorial Day 2016 (26 Jan 2016)

Kenneth Macintosh: ...genocide of the Holocaust. In parts of the world today, the barbarity of killing people because of their religion or ethnicity continues. People are being thrown off buildings to their deaths because they are gay. Our response to that cannot be anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. It should be the tolerance, kindness and humanity that has been shown by survivors such as Bob Kutner. One of the...

Central and East Africa (25 Jan 2016)

Patrick Grady: ...experiencing instability—there are worrying reports of human rights abuses. The Scottish National party manifesto called for a special envoy in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on global lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex issues to show leadership on discrimination, which is all too prevalent in many of those countries. It would be useful to hear what consideration...

Backbench Business — Childhood Obesity Strategy: Holocaust Memorial Day (21 Jan 2016)

Kirsten Oswald: ...they pointed out that it was important for our whole society to have a Holocaust Memorial Day for the Jewish people and for the other victims of the holocaust, including Roma people, trade unionists, people with disabilities, gay people and Jehovah’s Witnesses—all those who, along with the Jews, were so terribly singled out for the crime of being different, as the hon. Member...

Marriage: Humanist Ceremonies — Question (21 Jan 2016)

Baroness Thornton: I thank the Minister for his Answer. He will understand why I keep returning to this because Scotland is a long way for one to go for one’s children to have a humanist marriage. Two gay people can now marry in a church but they cannot have a humanist wedding in England and Wales. It is two and a half years since this House agreed that it thought that should happen. Can the Minister say...

Business of the House (21 Jan 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...important measure should be considered by the whole House, line by line. Next Wednesday is Holocaust Memorial Day. This afternoon, we will have a debate on the memorial day and remember the millions of Jews who were exterminated, the trade unionists, the Roma, the gay men, the so-called asocials, the Jehovah’s Witnesses and, of course, the people with disabilities who were killed...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 — New Psychoactive Substances – Prevention and Education (20 Jan 2016)

David Burrowes: ...approach to treatment and education. We must get up to speed and the review needs to convince us it is doing that. Finally, I come to poppers. In Committee I raised concerns about the ban on behalf of many people, including the gay community. I am very pleased that the Government have, belatedly, reached a point where they are going to look seriously at the evidence and at exempting alkyl...

Scottish Parliament: David Bowie (20 Jan 2016)

Fiona Hyslop: ...connections to Scotland. As a great artist, David Bowie sought to challenge and change perceptions and made great music, drama and visual arts. His influence in changing the worlds of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities was enormous. He was an icon of the modern world. One of the most immediate responses that captured that combined sense of loss and appreciation was the...

HIV and AIDS — Question for Short Debate (18 Jan 2016)

Lord Black of Brentwood: be acted on, please let us continue to remember, as we have heard from so many speakers today, that one of the most basic points about why HIV continues to spread and why treatment will never be as effective as it can be is down to criminalisation of gay men and women. Action on treatment will never be sufficient on its own until we make progress on that agenda too.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Daesh (18 Jan 2016)

Michael Fallon: could negotiate with Daesh, or even that Daesh has some “strong points”. The House will recall that those strong points include the beheading of opponents, burning prisoners alive, throwing gays off buildings, enslaving young women, murdering innocent British tourists in Tunisia, and slaughtering young people on a night out in Paris. I fail to see any particular attraction.

Business of the House (14 Jan 2016)

Chris Bryant: May I start by warmly congratulating the Secretary of State for Scotland on joining the ranks of out gay MPs yesterday? His announcement was made with considerable charm, I thought. He said he hoped that he would not be treated any differently because of his sexuality. May I assure him that being gay does not necessarily make you any better as a politician? [Laughter.] Oh, I did not think...
