Online Safety Bill [HL] — Second Reading (6 Dec 2013)

Broadcasting: Digital Radio — Question (22 Jan 2014)

Children: Racist and Islamophobic Bullying — Question (29 Jan 2014)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, I was a victim of racial abuse so I personally know the distress and trauma it can cause.

Can my noble friend tell the House what sort of counselling and support victims of racial...
