Scotland: Devolution — Motion to Take Note (29 October 2014)

Lord Judd: My Lords, I regard myself as English and Scottish. I had an English father and a Scottish mother who both were very proud of their nationhood. Therefore, I have always seen the United Kingdom as a marriage between two partners, each with their own vivid background. History, culture and religion—each has its identity. I look at the right reverend Prelates opposite and I am glad to see...

Domestic Violence — [Dr William McCrea in the Chair] (29 October 2014)

Seema Malhotra: ...are wider issues as well, if we treat violence against women and girls as the broader theme: thousands of girls are at risk of female genital mutilation and others disappear to become victims of forced marriage or honour violence—and it has been more comfortable for us to turn a blind eye to those issues. I was proud to be at the launch of Plan International’s campaign to face...

Siobhain McDonagh: ...would love to have as their friend. She has two sons. The first was in the Army, and the second, Philip, has Down’s syndrome. She has cared for him brilliantly. As happens in many cases, when she had a disabled son, her marriage broke down. She moved into a three-bedroom house on St Helier avenue over 22 years ago. Her eldest son has now left and joined the Army. She is in a...

Kevan Jones: ...in the House, but there was a very courageous Labour Member of Parliament called Ann Cryer, who represented Keighley. In the face of a great many personal threats and a great deal of local hostility, she argued against forced marriages and highlighted the issue of birth defects in the Asian community. She was also one of the first people to talk about issues that have now gained...

Construction Industry — Motion to Take Note (23 October 2014)

Lord Selsdon: ...this debate. It strays far beyond this ground, but it is the building of a home for the owner-occupier that becomes important. When you get the problems associated with families, regrettably—the split-up marriages, divorce, all sorts of situations where pressure comes upon people—how can we find a way to release funds, which might be called equity release, for people with...

Backbench Business: Repeal of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 (23 October 2014)

Edward Leigh: ...It was a hash job—let us be honest about it. It was designed to keep both parties in the coalition from doing a runner on each other and it was never thought through properly. This was always going to be a loveless marriage, and fixed-term Parliaments were a pre-nuptial settlement drawn up between two parties that were never in love. Indeed, they had to bind their marriage in barbed...

Northern Ireland: Haass Talks — Question for Short Debate (22 October 2014)

Lord Hylton: ...that Northern Ireland is still deeply divided. One has only to look at segregated education and housing, walls separating communities, flags, parades, emblems, unsolved historic crimes and mixed marriages. Tonight’s debate refers to the conclusions of the Haass talks. These seem to be the recommendations of mediators trying to propose rational compromises. The parties may well not...

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

Michael Fabricant: ...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 Couples) Act 2013 block those same people from donating blood? It used to be even worse. Gay people were banned altogether until the intervention of my hon. Friend the Member...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Foreign National Offenders (Removal) (22 October 2014)

Theresa May: ...that we feel we need to address. It is something we have been dealing with over the past four and a half years in Europe. We have made some progress in relation to criminal activity, such as sham marriages and so forth, but abuse of free movement is something we need to deal with.

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill (21 October 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

Conor Burns: ...away. She said, “That’s not far enough behind at this stage.” It is up to us as politicians to take decisions, confident in our judgments and confident that over time they will be shown to be right. I will use the recent example of same-sex marriage. I agonised over how to vote on that, as a practising Catholic and as an openly gay man. If I had listened to those in my...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Relationships and Children’s Well-being (21 October 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

Mark Harper: ...one in 10. That is something that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State focuses on, and I think it is the foundation. It is not any form of prejudice; it is the evidence behind the Government’s wish to recognise marriage in the tax system. The Prime Minister made it clear in his speech at the Relationships Alliance, at which my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and my...

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Bishops and Priests (Consecration and Ordination of Women) Measure (20 October 2014)

Susan Elan Jones: ...from the Church in Wales is the fact that the Church of England is an established church. Most of us laboured under the misapprehension that the Church in Wales was disestablished, but when we had the debate on equal marriage we discovered that what we thought had happened in 1920 had not really happened. Perhaps we can finish off the job before it reaches its centenary. As long as we have...

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Clause 3 — Responsibility (20 October 2014)

Andy Slaughter: ...in care, on property transactions, on insurance transactions; indeed, an endless list that will include every sector of industry, every area of public activity and every kind of personal interaction outside marriage and criminality.” It raises the issue of “how evidence of heroic state of mind will be demonstrated.” It says that the Bill “seeks to influence judicial...
