Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (21 Jul 2015)

Lord Scriven: ...I said, the living wage does not even apply to the under-25s, and I do not understand the changes in housing benefit. There are scores of young people under 21 in this country who run away from home for the sake of getting housing benefit. Let me give one statistic of young people who are lesbian and gay who leave home because they have come out—69% say that it is because they have...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Human Rights (Saudi Arabia) (21 Jul 2015)

Kerry McCarthy: ...priorities: freedom of expression on the internet, torture prevention, women’s rights, freedom of religion or belief, and the abolition of the death penalty. The Foreign Office has never listed lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights as one of its six priorities, although that should be a priority, not least because in countries such as Saudi Arabia homosexuality is punishable...

Asylum: Sexual Orientation — Question (20 Jul 2015)

Lord Bates: I am aware of the action plan; it has been drawn up in consultation with the national asylum stakeholders group, which includes groups that work specifically with lesbian, gay and bisexual organisations.

Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood: ...morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others”. It is generally the protection of the rights and freedoms of others and, above all, the increasing recognition of the rights of others, in particular gays and lesbians, not to be discriminated against that has led to much of the litigation under this provision. Take the Supreme Court case of Bull and...

Business of the House (16 Jul 2015)

Conor McGinn: ...Stirk.

Bill Presented — Trade Union Bill: Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (Statutory Requirement) (15 Jul 2015)

Caroline Lucas: ...alleged sexual offences had happened in schools, including 134 rapes, and that more than half of them were committed by other children. There are so many other dimensions to PSHE—far more than I can cover now—but let me mention the need to support and protect young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersexual and queer people, because homophobic language and bullying remain...

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (14 Jul 2015)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...;s plans that I want to succeed is the northern powerhouse initiative. I am must admit that the branding of the policy amuses me somewhat as when I was a teenager growing up in the north-east, the Northern Powerhouse was the name of the biggest gay club in Newcastle, although I am sure that the Chancellor did not mean to name his policy after it. The premise behind the policy is strong. As...

Public Sector Broadcasting (Diversity) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (14 Jul 2015)

John Nicolson: ...BBC is comfortable with Scottish accents, and there are plenty of them, fortunately. I did not know that the hon. Lady would raise the issue of the under-representation of other minorities—not least lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. Again, I can speak from personal experience. When I came out as gay when I was presenting “BBC Breakfast” on BBC 1, which I did...

Bills Presented: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (9 Jul 2015)

Cat Smith: ...of the 3,000 children who are desperately seeking a home in this country? This Budget is an attack on the younger generation. Cutting housing benefit for under-21s will particularly affect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth, who are more likely to find themselves homeless. Student grants are now gone and have been turned into loans, thereby passing more debt on to some of the...

Health Funding — Question (9 Jul 2015)

Baroness Walmsley: ...Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply, but given that these cuts will impact on teenage pregnancy programmes for the young, domestic violence programmes for women, HIV prevention programmes for gay men and some members of the BME community and TB prevention programmes for the poor and homeless, will he say where the equality is in that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Tunisia, and European Council (29 Jun 2015)

David Cameron: ...offensive to many Muslims who see, as I do, not a state but a barbaric regime of terrorism and oppression that takes delight in murder, in oppressing women and in killing people because they are gay, so I raised this with the BBC this morning. I personally think using the term ISIL or “so-called” would be better than what it currently uses. I do not think we will move it all...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Belarus (29 Jun 2015)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...specifically on behalf of Mr Tsikhanyuk. We are careful not to do so in such sensitive cases unless we have the consent of those concerned.
