China: Freedom of Religion and Belief - Question (25 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, the noble Lord on the Benches opposite asked which Muslim countries had called for the closing of these camps. Turkey called for these camps to be closed down on 10 February, when the Turkish President said that it shamed humanity that these camps existed. Do the British Government agree?

Deportation: Jamaica - Private Notice Question (6 Feb 2019)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, within the last few days I met a man who has lived in the UK for 41 years, since the age of four. He was due to be deported to Jamaica, but then his deportation was cancelled, which is obviously good news. Does the Minister think this is a just way for this country to conduct its deportation policies? How many more people are in the pipeline to be deported day after day, and which...

Islamophobia - Question (14 Jan 2019)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, the Minister has acknowledged that hate crimes against Muslims have risen dramatically. The Government’s own figures show a rise of 40%, almost equal to that of anti-Semitism. Will the Government accept that it is becoming increasingly normalised? We have commentators and columnists who think it is perfectly proper to argue that racism and hate speech against Muslims is acceptable...

Forced Marriages: Repatriation Charges - Question (9 Jan 2019)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I am also very grateful to the Minister for this good outcome today. However, there have been reports of women being sold into slavery, or who cannot come back because of the charges. Have any attempts been made to contact and repatriate those who have been unable to pay and found themselves destitute and trapped in those countries?

Privileges and Conduct Committee - Motion to Agree (17 Dec 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords—

Privileges and Conduct Committee - Motion to Agree (17 Dec 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: I am grateful. I was present at the debate on 15 November. It was quite by accident—we had all been told that no Division of the House was intended. It was a Thursday afternoon, so Members of your Lordships’ House were leaving in numbers to catch trains and attend other commitments. The numbers were dwindling as the long speeches went on. However, I stayed to listen, because I felt...

Privileges and Conduct - Motion to Agree (15 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: Of course, I am concerned about that. The noble Lord seems to suggest that the procedures that we have adopted are not fit for purpose, but he has not said why his friend, the noble Lord, Lord Lester, went along with it. If it was so unfair, as someone as eminent as him would know, why on earth he did go along with that procedure and why was nothing said before?

Privileges and Conduct - Motion to Agree (15 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: Excuse me. This is very inappropriate.

Privileges and Conduct - Motion to Agree (15 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: You are going through the case but you were not there.

Privileges and Conduct - Motion to Agree (15 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: You are trying the case. Shame on you.

Privileges and Conduct - Motion to Agree (15 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: You did. In the #MeToo movement, it takes one brave person to come forward. I have already heard rumours of others. Other women—it is usually women—think “I can come forward too now”, because there is a precedent. It was the same with the child abuse scandals. It took decades before those who were abused terribly as children had the courage to come forward. I am sure that is the case...

Privileges and Conduct - Motion to Agree (15 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I rise to speak as a minority in this debate. First, I am a woman; secondly, I am not a lawyer; and thirdly, I am not a friend of the noble Lord, Lord Lester. Having said that, I am very friendly with him—he is a colleague and I respect him enormously for the work he has done over his very long and distinguished career. Also, I have helped and supported women and girls who have...

Privileges and Conduct - Motion to Agree (15 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: No. You said about the noble Lord, Lord Lester, that, because he was a friend, you had never heard—

Cannabis: Medicinal Uses - Question (1 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I declare an interest, as my grandson has intractable epilepsy. He has just been assessed for medicinal cannabis and we very much welcome that. However, I am very concerned about the comments that this will be used as a last resort. My grandson has been subjected to many, many drugs and the side-effects from many of them have been horrific, so to say that those drugs are fine but...

Youth Crime: London - Question (22 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to reduce youth crime in London.

Youth Crime: London - Question (22 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: I thank the Minister for that response. The alarming rise in knife crime and the number of deaths by stabbing of young people in London prompted me to put this Question down, on behalf of those of us who have boys and are terrified about whether they will come home in one piece. The streets are not safe any more for young people. According to figures, knife crime has gone up by 15% in the...

Asylum Applications - Question (15 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, the Minister will be aware of the report Still Falling Short, which was produced recently by the UK Lesbian and Gay Immigration group highlighting that LGBT+ asylum seekers were routinely disbelieved by Home Office decision-makers, and were falling short of the legal standard required in asylum applications. For example, one applicant was told that LGBT+ people cannot possibly...

Jamal Khashoggi - Private Notice Question (9 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, the Minister said that there have been some discussions. Has there been any explanation why a man, Jamal Khashoggi, who had already expressed fear for his life and had been critical of the Saudi regime walked into an embassy and never came out? There is footage of him going in; no footage has been produced of him coming out. In fact, there are now reports that he went to the embassy...

Brexit: No Deal - Question (11 Sep 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, the idea of voting eroding democracy is a very new concept. Can the Minister outline how he expects the public to have confidence when Ministers and other government representatives are advising the stockpiling of food and pharmaceuticals, thus causing alarm to many people, particularly those who are dependent on drugs that come through the EU?

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (7 Sep 2018)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: I apologise that the great reaper has not taken me away yet, but does the noble Lord not think that there is an overrepresentation of white, privileged, well-off, middle-class men—or even more privileged men—in this House compared with the population as a whole? Does he not think that there is an imbalance in this House in people who represent ordinary people in this country?
