Elections for Positions in the House: Backbench Business — Valedictory Debate (26 March 2015)

Mike Weatherley: ...engaged by parliamentarians. I pay tribute to Niki Haywood, who founded the initiatives with me. I also pay tribute to you for supporting that right from the outset, Mr Speaker. There are two other issues that I should mention: my support for equal marriage and my opposition to fox hunting, both of which I can claim to be achievements. However, it is not all about the big-ticket issues. I...

Private Investigators — Question (26 March 2015)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I find the Minister’s answer incredible. The consultation that he referred to was nearly three years ago and it had the highest number of responses of any consultation except that on gay marriage. In fact, the responses were unanimous on that occasion. Does the Minister realise that fewer police officers means that private security is replacing and working alongside the...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Immigration (26 March 2015)

Brandon Lewis: ...the enforcement of our immigration laws. Since 2010, this Government has stripped more than 850 bogus colleges of their rights to sponsor foreign students; cracked down on illegal working and sham marriages; made it harder for people to live in the UK illegally by restricting their access to bank accounts, driving licences, and private housing; and reduced the number of appeal routes to...

Written Ministerial Statements — Deputy Prime Minister: Commencement of Succession to the Crown Act 2013 (26 March 2015)

Nicholas Clegg: ...against women. The Act also ends another long-standing piece of discrimination, the bar on anyone who marries a Roman Catholic from becoming monarch, and replaces the outdated Royal Marriages Act 1772 such that only the first 6 in line to the throne need consent of the monarch to marry. These changes were agreed at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Perth, Australia, in...

Modern Slavery Bill — Commons Amendments (25 March 2015)

Lord Deben: ...faults in this amendment which need to be considered. My worry is simply this. This Bill is one of the Bills in the last five years which makes one proud to be part of the legislative process. The same-sex marriage Bill, the decision to give a very fixed amount of money to developing countries as an absolute necessity and now this Bill have shown this country in a remarkable light. I am...

EU and Russia (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (24 March 2015)

The Earl of Sandwich: .... Mrs Thatcher’s simple test was to ask whom one could do business with. If we are selling our house to an oligarch, presumably we are not in the least concerned about his attitude to human rights, but if he proposes marriage to one of our family then we begin to be concerned about his motives. I believe that we should make much more effort to understand Russia’s point of view....

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Commonwealth Day (24 March 2015)

Crispin Blunt: ...has been on—from active enforcement of the laws in the 1950s, to a review of them in the Wolfenden report of 1957, to decriminalisation and then to equality in most of the United Kingdom, with the delivery of same-sex marriage. The organisation is also about making clear to one’s fellow parliamentarians that we are not expecting them to change—it took 60 years in the...

...(“minimum amount” for calculating tax reductions for married couples and civil partners) is replaced with “3,220”, (d) the amount specified in section 45(3)(a) of that Act (amount for calculating allowance in relation to marriages before 5 December 2005 where spouse is 75 or over) is replaced with “8,355”, (e) the amount specified in section...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Visas: Income Threshold (23 March 2015)

James Brokenshire: ...the Government defended that position. The Supreme Court found in 2011 that although the Secretary of State was pursuing a legitimate and rational aim in seeking to address the problem of forced marriages —the hon. Gentleman will know that such issues exist—increasing the minimum marriage visa age from 18 to 21 disproportionately interfered with the right to a family life under...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 March 2015)

Kate Green: ...not expect that to happen. The Chancellor has taken a series of quite deliberate fiscal choices that have favoured the better-off, whether it is reducing the top rate of income tax or introducing the marriage tax allowance. The latter benefits only couples who are well off enough to be paying tax at all, and, what is more, only one in five of the couples who will benefit are raising...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Equality Legislation: Revised Wording (16 March 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Edwin Poots: ...individuals to think particular things. It is sad that the Ashers case came to the fore through a cake that was to be used by the Alliance Party's Mayor of North Down, I believe, to promote gay marriage. I am happy to be challenged on that. If someone is not in support of gay marriage, why go to their business and seek to force them to provide that support? It is wrong that someone's...
