Black and Minority Ethnic People: Workplace Issues - Motion to Take Note (3 May 2016)

Baroness Howells of St Davids: ...that we had to deal with covert racism in a country which considered itself Christian and civilised. The Equality and Human Rights Commission was set up, bringing together women, the disabled, people of different races, and gays and lesbians. The Commission for Racial Equality was wiped out completely and all the other institutions which were of help to those seeking justice quickly...

Business of the House (28 Apr 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...Chancellor is an “out, in”. The Chancellor is an “in, in”, along with the Attorney General and the Solicitor General, but the Leader of the House is an “out, out”. As for me, I am out for in, but that is more of a gay pro-EU kind of thing. The Health Secretary says he is in his last big job in politics—hurrah!—and I hear that with an...

European Convention on Human Rights: Uk Membership (26 Apr 2016)

Nick Herbert: ...by Parliament itself? By contrast, is it not the case that the most egregious human rights abuses are found abroad, as evidenced, for instance, by the brutal murder of the editor of a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender magazine in Bangladesh yesterday? Should the UK not use the full force of its influence to stand against such abuses?

BBC Charter Review (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 Apr 2016)

Lord Macdonald of Tradeston: ...fallen behind other broadcasters in setting and achieving targets for a more diverse workforce. Diversity, of course, embraces more than BAME matters; it is also about the representation and employment of people with disabilities, about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, about regionalism and about gender. Noble Lords may recall that our own Communications Committee recently...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Leveson Inquiry (21 Apr 2016)

John Nicolson: ...have seen highlights of the House’s recent debate on BBC diversity. All sides were in complete agreement that there is a striking shortage of black senior managers, an inexplicable lack of openly gay and lesbian presenters in high-profile news and current affairs roles and a shocking absence of older women on screen anywhere. The House agreed that the time for BBC studies and targets...

Western Sahara: Self-determination (20 Apr 2016)

Alan Brown: ...detention, and no Moroccan investigations into alleged abuses. I suggest to Morocco that if it is serious about a solution, it needs to recognise allegations of abuse, violence and torture and start some investigations. Other testimonies confirm sexual violence and rape, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights are non-existent. Morocco’s autonomy proposal for Western Sahara...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Global LGBTI Human Rights Conference (20 Apr 2016)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: As I set out to the House on the 21 March, and in my answers of 5 April, and the noble Baroness Verma’s answer of 31 March, the British Government will send a delegation to the Global Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and/or Intersex (LGBTI) Human Rights Conference taking place in Montevideo in July. The Government is clear in its belief that human rights are universal and should...

BBC: Diversity (14 Apr 2016)

David Lammy: ...stage in relation to charter renewal. Until those in charge look like the people of this country—that means women, people with northern voices, black people, brown people, Chinese people and lesbian and gay people who can make it and become the DG of the BBC—we cannot say that we have arrived. We are a long way from that point, and more skills training will not deliver it....

Women and Equalities: LGBT Young People (14 Apr 2016)

Clive Lewis: With Stonewall research showing that 55% of young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people experience bullying, I am pleased to hear that the Government are spending extra money, but what else will they be doing to ensure that those issues are covered in the curriculum as well?

Private Members’ Bills — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (13 Apr 2016)

Rupa Huq: Would the hon. Lady say that the fact that statutory instruments are now being used with gay abandon—that was criticised by Lord Judge this morning—is part of a wider pattern that includes the cutting of Short money and the Trade Union Bill? It is part of a wider pattern of an attack on democracy?

Backbench Business: HIV: Women and Girls — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (12 Apr 2016)

Mike Freer: The hon. Gentleman makes a strong point. It is still a shame on the Commonwealth that so many of our Commonwealth partners continue to discriminate against people with HIV and against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Later, I will go on to mention some of the challenges with our withdrawal from many of the middle-income countries. It leaves many marginalised groups and many...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: *No heading* (5 Apr 2016)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: As I set out to the House of Lords on the 21 March, the composition of the UK’s delegation at the Global Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and/or Intersex (LGBTI) Human Rights Conference in July is not yet finalised. It is expected to include selected officials with experience of working on LGBTI human rights issues, including from the Department for International Development and the...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: *No heading* (5 Apr 2016)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: As I set out to the House of Lords on the 21 March, the UK will send a delegation to the Global Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and/or Intersex (LGBTI) Human Rights Conference taking place in Montevideo in July. We are committed to working with those countries that will be represented at the conference, and others, to combat discrimination and violence against LGBTI people. This forms an...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: *No heading* (31 Mar 2016)

Baroness Verma: ...wider international human rights work. DFID is assessing the benefits of including representatives from the department at the Global LGBTI Human Rights Conference through discussion with key lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB&T) organisations and with other government departments. The Global LGBTI Human Rights Conference will provide an opportunity to share information, best...

Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Operators (Regulation) (22 Mar 2016)

Wes Streeting: ...that the regulators ought to be acting a lot harder on. Guide Dogs UK found in a survey of assistance dog owners that 43.5% of respondents had been refused access to private hire vehicles, and it is all too common for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender passengers to experience discrimination. Though I enjoy price competition as much as anyone else, is it really fair to expect cabbies...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homelessness (21 Mar 2016)

Cat Smith: The Albert Kennedy Trust’s recent report found that 24% of homeless youth are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, the majority citing parental rejection or abuse as the primary reason for their homelessness. Does the Minister support the trust’s call for vulnerable young people aged 18 to 21 facing rejection and abuse at home to be treated as a group exempt from the housing...

Written Answers — Home Office: Domestic Violence (15 Mar 2016)

Karen Bradley: ...experience multiple forms of discrimination and disadvantage or additional barriers to accessing support. These include women and girls from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB&T) victims. The increased funding of 80 million, and our support for local areas to improve local commissioning, will help to ensure that the needs...
