Giving legal recognition to humanist marriages – Baroness Thornton. Oral questions

Queen’s Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (28 May 2015)

Lord Loomba: ..., famine, the continued spread of HIV, and the Ebola epidemic. As more and more women become widows, so the demographics of this group have changed. Many younger women, through cultural practices such as forced marriage and the acceptance of child brides, are marrying at a younger age and then, in turn, becoming widows. The latest census shows that more than 269,000 children became widowed...

Debate on the Address: Home Affairs and Justice (28 May 2015)

Theresa May: ...bogus colleges have been shut; the driving licences of over 9,500 illegal immigrants have been revoked; our benefits system have been tightened; over 1,700 people have been arrested as a result of sham marriage operations and more than 600 removed; and more than 24,000 foreign criminals have been removed since 2010 and our deportation laws have been streamlined. In the past five years, we...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [1st day] (27 May 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

David Tredinnick: ...the right thing to do, as is bringing the northern cities together to create this great hub. The fact that our Chancellor—the man with the moneybags—represents Tatton is very helpful to those in the north. As I have said, I take an interest in Scotland. I am related by marriage to a family in Scotland, one of whose members made the last speech in the Scottish Parliament against...

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: ...had the chance to work alongside him, whether as fellow business managers or when I was a junior member of his team taking the Justice and Security Bill through this House, or indeed when we worked on the equal marriage Bill—as he says, one of the great pieces of legislation that we passed in the previous Parliament, which I am very proud to have played a part in. The noble and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Suicide Prevention: Londonderry (12 May 2015)

Ross Hussey: ...stays with the family. What are the causes? If we knew all the causes, we would know all the answers. Certainly, bullying is one of them. There are also legal highs, alcohol, depression, debt, marriage breakdown and work-related issues. We will see that more and more as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) sets in to members of the security forces, for example, or perhaps to those who...

Marriage Equality

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister: Homophobic Remarks: DUP (27 April 2015)

Peter Robinson: ...that every section of the House will be mindful — of the need for it to be conducted respectfully on all sides. We are dealing with public policy issues that relate to changing the definition of marriage to include same-sex couples. As the law stands, people have the choice of entering into a civil partnership if they are a same-sex couple, or engaging in the ordinance of marriage...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister: Sexual Orientation Strategy: Dragged Out (27 April 2015)

Peter Robinson: Again, we come back to the definition of marriage. I suspect that the Assembly discussed that for some considerable time before Question Time began. The definition of marriage that many of us recognise is that it is an ordinance handed down by God for the procreation of children to ensure that a man and a woman can get married. If there is a same-sex relationship, that is catered for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Marriage Equality (27 April 2015) See 17 other results from this debate

Simon Hamilton: ..., you will inevitably lower self-esteem and create unnecessary divisions. Different approaches are not lesser or discriminatory, and it is wrong to imply that a civil partnership is an inferior status. Our marriage law recognises the unique relationship between a man and a woman, just as our law on civil partnerships recognises the unique relationship between two people of the same sex....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Northern Ireland Act 1998: Report on the Operation of the Provisions of Parts 3 and 4 (27 April 2015)

Basil McCrea: ..., a peace process or any other process. We have far more important things to deal with, whether they be youth unemployment, trying to get the economy going or trying to sort out our stance on gay marriage or any of the other issues that affect us. Let us have proper debate. But, do you know what? We cannot. Everything comes back to whether we will have Marty as First Minister or...

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)

Nick 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...
