Prevent Strategy - Question (20 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: I thank the Minister for her response. I extend my condolences and those of these Benches to the victims of the atrocities that happened in Berlin and Zurich last night. Our thoughts and prayers are with those families. After a terrible year of terrorist attacks around the world, the people of this country want to feel confident that the Government’s counter-radicalisation strategy is...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Cyprus: Peace Negotiations (20 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: To ask Her Majesty’s Government who will be the UK's representative on the proposed five-party conference to discuss the Cyprus Settlement, to be held on 12 January 2017.

Islam: Tenet of Abrogation - Question (12 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, while associating myself with the comments of the right reverend Prelate, can I ask the Minister whether she thinks it appropriate for a Question to be put down on the Order Paper of this House which refers to “Islamic terrorism”? She quite rightly referred to “Islamist terrorism”. It is inappropriate to lump in 2.5 million British Muslims in this country as somehow being...

Islam: Tenet of Abrogation - Question (12 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: Will she also say whether she thinks that is appropriate?

Gender-based Violence - Private Notice Question (8 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: Does the Minister agree that domestic violence and abuse affect women from all backgrounds, all cultures and all faiths— although they overwhelmingly white, in this instance? Seventy-six per cent of the women who have been killed by their partner or ex-partner were killed in the first year. There seems to be a problem with reporting. The cases are being reported as isolated incidents when...

HIV: Barriers to Treatment - Question (1 Dec 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, what steps are being taken to ensure that prisoners have access to treatment, testing and care while in prison? They are more likely to be drug users, more susceptible and more likely to be from communities that do not get themselves tested, even when they are in good health. Could the Minister say something about prison health?

Istanbul Convention - Question (24 Nov 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, as the Minister has said, there has been tremendous progress over the past six years. However, she has not really articulated why we are a signatory to the convention but still setting our face against ratifying it. By ratifying it, we would show a long-term commitment to preventing, educating and doing all we can to take action on violence against women. Ratifying also means...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Civil Partnerships: Isle of Man (3 Nov 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they intend to recognise civil partnerships granted by the government of the Isle of Man to opposite sex couples who are resident in the UK.

Press Matters - Statement (1 Nov 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I know the noble and learned Lord said he did want to go into individual cases but I would like to raise the issue of IPSO’s credibility following the case of Fatima Manji, the Channel 4 presenter and journalist, who was attacked by Kelvin MacKenzie, the former editor of the Sun, who said that she should not present the news in the wake of the terrible tragedies in Nice because...

Prevent Strategy - Question (26 Oct 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, does the Minister accept that within much of the Muslim community Prevent has now become tainted and discredited? It risks alienating the very communities it needs to engage with in order to be successful in defeating terrorism. Is she aware of the harmful effect in particular on children who are being targeted and referred by schools, often wrongly, under the legislation? On...

Hate Crime - Question (18 Oct 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, as the Minister mentioned, the incidence of race and religious hate crimes has gone up by some 40%. The figure the Home Office released is 5,468 at the end of July. Can she say how many of those incidents have been properly investigated, whether there have been any convictions and whether she has any figures? Until there are convictions and examples are made to show that we will not...

Israel: Children in Military Custody - Question (12 Oct 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, how many Palestinian children are being held in Israeli prisons, and how many of them are being held without charge or trial?

Calais Camp: Lone Children - Question (10 Oct 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many lone children in Calais with family links in the United Kingdom have been allowed into the United Kingdom in the past 12 months.

Calais Camp: Lone Children - Question (10 Oct 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: That is a very disappointing figure. Does the Minister not recognise that what was an urgent issue is now a child protection crisis? According to the Red Cross, which contributed a report over the weekend, it is taking up to 11 months to process a single child to come to this country. With hundreds of children who have family links and legal rights to come here, why is it taking so long and...

Hate Crime - Question (14 Sep 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, just yesterday a woman in a headscarf was attacked and lost her baby as a result. We know from the rise in this sort of hate crime that it is now a daily occurrence. Can the public sector equality duty be used to reduce such hate crime, and will the Government consider looking at the analysis of the figures she is collecting as a way of trying to reduce it?

Turkey: Judicial Services - Question (21 Jul 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, does the Minister accept that the Turkish public are still reeling from the attempted coup and the implications that it has for them? I am grateful to her for outlining the matter. What consideration is being given to the many Turkish nationals over here on student and work visas, some of whom have contacted me because they are afraid of what might happen if they return to Turkey?...

Turkey - Statement (19 Jul 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: I also welcome the noble Baroness to her new post and wish her well, and thank her for repeating the Statement. It is clear that none of us can predict what will come next—which is the important factor. Just today, there have been reports that 14 navy ships, along with the admiral and commander of the Turkish Navy, have gone missing. Nobody seems to know what has happened. Every day there...

Community Cohesion - Question (18 Jul 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, will the Minister acknowledge and welcome the fact that many people have come together to oppose the rise in hate crime and to show their revulsion at what has been going on? Will he say whether the role of the media should now be looked at more closely? Over the weekend in the Sun, Kelvin MacKenzie wrote a column criticising a Muslim broadcaster reporting on the news, because she...

Hate Crime - Question (14 Jul 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I concur absolutely with the noble Lord’s final statement; nevertheless, we have seen a 500% increase in reported hate and race crime, and many more incidents are not reported. What is being done, for example, in schools where people from Eastern European, Muslim and Jewish backgrounds are being targeted? What support is being given to schools to make sure that this is reported...

Civil Service Fast Stream - Question (11 Jul 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords—
