Crispin Blunt: Thank you for calling me, Mr Speaker—I had not spotted the opportunity.

Lord Jenkin of Roding: My Lords, I too support these regulations. Perhaps I might just respond to the noble Lord, Lord Paddick, by reminding him that there was only one party that actually included same-sex marriage in its manifesto.

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (7 November 2014)

Lord Deben: ...applied. I hope that the noble Baroness who intervened earlier will accept that there are many of us who do not approach this from a prejudiced or religious point of view. As somebody who fought very hard for same-sex marriage, I can hardly be accused of always taking the view of the church to which I belong. I take this view after 40 years as a Member of Parliament or candidate. I have...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Church Schools (5 November 2014)

Lord Nash: ...are not altered by the changes to the standards. The changes do not fetter the views of individual teachers or censor the discussion of relevant matters. A teacher who, for instance, disagrees with same-sex marriage because of their Christian faith will not be prevented from expressing that view by these changes. Since the changes make no difference to schools’ existing legal...

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Second Reading (4 November 2014)

Lord Lloyd of Berwick: .... In any event, such a view is contradicted by history. There have in fact been four recent amendments in the past seven years. The most recent example is the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Dear, to the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013. That amendment did not succeed but there was not the slightest hint that it was inappropriate to have approached the matter in that way. Secondly,...

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

Michael Fabricant: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to allow donation of blood by all male donors on the same basis; and for connected purposes. Sometimes, Mr Speaker, you just know when something is wrong; when 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...

Jessica Lee: ...the parental order and the wardship was set aside. There had been significant delays in returning the child to the UK. It can be said, therefore, that case law has moved matters forward, but the rules remain the same and that is a matter for Parliament to resolve and to do so early. We are dealing with people’s families and with emotive issues. That is the most important thing. If...

Tristram Hunt: ...had all hoped for a change of direction from the new Education Secretary, so I read with great interest her interview in The Sunday Telegraph, in which she explained how “we have seen the first same-sex marriages take place, which is great.” Indeed it is, but why did she seek to prevent it from happening by voting against the policy? If she really thought it was great, she...

Scottish Parliament: Commonwealth Games (Legacy) (7 August 2014)

Kenneth Gibson: ...its culture and promote its values—sometimes in a very tongue-in-cheek way.
