Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Fiona Bruce: I thank the Government for proposing a bespoke refugee scheme focusing on the most vulnerable in Afghanistan. I am glad that, as the Home Secretary said today, it will include persecuted minorities—those who are persecuted simply on account of their religion or belief. That is absolutely in accord with our Government’s commitment to promoting and defending freedom of religion or belief...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2021)

Fiona Bruce: One aspect of my role as the Prime Minister’s special envoy for freedom of religion or belief is to represent the UK on the International Religious Freedom or Belief Alliance, which comprises 33 like-minded countries committed to championing FoRB. The UK has led the way in securing a statement from alliance members published today on the gov.uk website. Time precludes me from reading it...

Petition - Sandbach Cemetery (14 Jul 2021)

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill (12 Jul 2021)

Fiona Bruce: I strongly support this much-needed Bill. Over recent years, I have been very concerned to hear of numerous restrictions on freedom of speech in academic settings. A doctorate student told me: “There really is no point me trying for an academic career with my political and religious views.” A career councillor gives the advice to Christian students—students holding what many in this...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Court Bill: New Clause 1 - Harassment in a public place (5 Jul 2021)

Fiona Bruce: I speak to oppose new clauses 55 and 42, which I urge colleagues to vote against. New clause 55 is truly shocking on many counts. It would legalise abortions in this country right up to the moment of the birth of a child. No reason would need to be given. The current 24-week limit provision would go. The new clause would legalise sex-selective abortions: an abortion could be legally performed...

Business of the House (1 Jul 2021)

Fiona Bruce: We recently celebrated UK National Marriage Week. As we come out of lockdown and welcome back larger weddings, may we have a debate about marriage, recognising that we do not want to price people out of marriage?

Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (17 Jun 2021)

Fiona Bruce: I want to touch on two concerns. The first is the reports of widespread sexual violence as a weapon of war by armed groups in Tigray, as referred to by the hon. Member for Rotherham (Sarah Champion) in her excellent speech, which I am pleased to follow. The second is the separate but by no means disconnected issue of the importance of promoting the fundamental human right of freedom of...

Business of the House (10 Jun 2021)
