National Health Service: Workforce Race Equality Standard — Question (24 Feb 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what progress has been made to improve race equality at senior management and board level in the National Health Service since the introduction of the National Health Service Workforce Race Equality Standard.

National Health Service: Workforce Race Equality Standard — Question (24 Feb 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: I thank the noble Lord for that reply. Can he say why, since the report by Roger Kline on the, “snowy white peaks of the NHS”, progress in ensuring that senior management and trust boards are more equal has been so disappointing? It does not reflect the diverse workforce and local populations. Will he ensure that trusts walk the walk and use NHS Executive Search rather than commercial...

Written Answers — Home Office: Broken Rainbow LGBT Domestic Violence Service (24 Feb 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to support the Manchester-based charity Broken Rainbow.

English Language Classes for Women — Question for Short Debate (28 Jan 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: I asked the noble Baroness, as did the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, and others, where the evidence is for the link that the Prime Minister articulated between women not being able to speak English and them losing their identity and sliding towards extremist organisations such as Daesh. He specifically said that. I listened very carefully but did not hear the Minister respond to that at all. That...

English Language Classes for Women — Question for Short Debate (28 Jan 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I, too, am a very strong supporter of Muslim women—and men—learning English. It is important for all migrants of all backgrounds, race, creed and religion to learn English, for themselves and for society as a whole. I do not think anyone in this Chamber will argue with that. But my jaw fell open—as did many others—at the statement that some Muslim women who cannot speak...

Under-occupancy Charge — Statement (28 Jan 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: Does the Minister accept that there is a shortage of appropriate housing for some of these social tenants to move into? This has been said repeatedly in this House when we have debated housing, including quite recently—there is a shortage. In those instances, surely it cannot be discretionary. The Minister just said in response to my noble friend that “by and large” these sorts of cases...

Rough Sleeping — Question (11 Jan 2016)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I am not sure whether the Minister has seen the Centrepoint report which states that the number of homeless young people aged between 16 and 25 years old has more than doubled since 2011. It has called on the Government to make more hostel provision and support services to stop very vulnerable young people ending up sleeping rough on the streets. Do the Government have a plan to...

Transport for London — Question (14 Dec 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, when the Minister meets Transport for London with his shopping list of requirements, could he also raise the issue of the growing number of hate crimes, particularly Islamophobic hate crimes, that are taking place on tubes and buses, particularly in London? There are reports of the driver, or whoever is responsible, doing absolutely nothing until passengers eventually intervene to...

Sex-selective Abortion — Question (7 Dec 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, if, as anecdotal evidence suggests, there are such terminations of female foetuses, surely that would be reflected in the overall population of girls being born. The figures I have seen show that women are, thankfully, still in the majority in this country.

Kurdistan Workers’ Party — Question (3 Dec 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, were the very important issues of human rights, press freedom and restarting the peace talks with the PKK on the table during the recent talks between the EU and Turkey on the package that has been announced on the refugee issue? Surely these issues must have been central to any discussions between the EU and Turkey.

Restaurants: Service Charge — Question (30 Nov 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: Is the Minister aware that in some instances staff rely on those tips for topping up their very low salaries? I have also come across occasions in some restaurants where staff receive tips and nothing else. Are any measures in place to monitor this kind of disgraceful behaviour?

Counterterrorism: Communities — Question for Short Debate (26 Nov 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Mobarik, for securing this important and timely debate. I have a few comments about some of things she touched on. Over the years, Muslims in Britain have spoken out against terrorism with one voice, even though many of us feel very strongly that we cannot possibly have any responsibility for or connection with barbaric ideologies like Daesh....

Domestic Abuse — Question (25 Nov 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, what is being done to pick up on early warning signs, given that the women who are losing their lives or suffering domestic violence are often harassed and stalked by partners and ex-partners over a period of time? Evidence has emerged that in some of these cases, when women have rung up the call centres, these signs have not always been picked up on or followed through...

Turkey — Question (18 Nov 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, can the Minister give some more information about reports of the proposed EU-Turkey summit, which has been called to encourage Turkey to do more to stem the flow of refugees into Europe—to act, in effect, as a border guard against refugees to Europe? Can she also say why there was very little reporting or mention of the attacks in Ankara on 10 October, when two suicide bombers...

Higher Education: Part-Time Students — Question (11 Nov 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: I am sure the Minister is aware that 60% of part-time students are female, and they could be disproportionately impacted by any of these changes. How will the Government prevent that and ensure that women will not bear the brunt of any changes, or lack of support, in provision to higher education?

Islam — Question (5 Nov 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, does the noble Lord think it is helpful or constructive that any religious text—be it from the Koran, the Old Testament or even the Hebrew scriptures; taken and quoted selectively—should be used in a negative, divisive and political way to put whole communities on trial?

Criminal Justice: Transgender People — Question (4 Nov 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: In light of some of the comments on previous cases, will the Government review the medical and bureaucratic hurdles for securing a gender recognition certificate under the 2004 Act?

Cold Calls — Question (29 Oct 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: The Minister suggested that the Telephone Preference Service was the answer. In my experience with my elderly mother, I have tried very hard to stop these nuisance calls, which cause huge distress. I spoke to BT and it suggested the service. You have to give a range of numbers that you allow to come in and everything else will be blocked, but clearly that is not acceptable if you are...

Housing: London — Question (26 Oct 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, does the noble Baroness accept that the Government’s policy of selling off social housing held by housing associations will further diminish the level of affordable and social housing? Does she not think that selling off housing association properties is, in effect, nationalising charitable assets?

Middle East and North Africa — Motion to Take Note (16 Sep 2015)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Williams of Baglan. I also welcome this debate. Much of what I was going to say has already been said so I will not repeat it, but I want to touch on a few points. The Minister outlined the catastrophic level of suffering: 12 million people have been forced from their homes. That is more than half the population of Syria. This is a...
