David Heath: .... If someone wants to do radical things in the House and represents a socially conservative constituency, they will face problems of this kind.

Bill Presented: Blood Donation (Equality) (22 October 2014)

Michael Fabricant: ...something does not make sense; when something is not fair. How can it be logical that a straight, promiscuous man who might have different partners every night of the year can donate blood, while a gay man in a monogamous, loving relationship cannot, unless he has certified that he has been totally celibate for the past year? How can a nation that has just passed the Marriage (Same Sex...
