Written Answers — Department for Education: Gender Recognition (1 Aug 2016)

Lord Nash: ...the Government responded to the Women and Equalities Select Committee inquiry on transgender equality. In this, we committed to publishing an update on progress against “Working for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality: Moving Forward (2011)”; and “Advancing transgender equality: a plan for action (2011)”. The Government also committed to producing a...

Palestine: Children - Motion to Take Note (21 Jul 2016)

Lord Oates: ...ideology and its vile application by the apartheid regime would ever make that comparison with the democratic state of Israel. Indeed, I note Israel is the only state in the region in which I, as a gay man, could live freely and under the protection of law. I have a great respect for the values of Israel. Nevertheless, while there is no comparison between the Government of Israel and that...

Online Child Abuse (20 Jul 2016)

Sarah Champion: ...of their gender or transgender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, nationality or religion. To highlight the impact of bullying, I will focus on one aspect of it: the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Recently, Stonewall released truly shocking figures: nine in 10 young people have heard homophobic remarks at school; six in 10 young people have...

Electoral Reform (Proportional Representation and Reduction of Voting Age) (20 Jul 2016)

Caroline Lucas: ...that better reflects modern Britain. Only 29% of MPs are women and although that is more than ever before, it still not right when women make up just over half the country’s adult population. People of colour, disabled people, carers, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender—LGBT—people are still under-represented in Parliament. I think that would change under PR,...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (19 Jul 2016)

Lord Paddick: ...the security of their databases. This makes highly intrusive personal data potentially available to criminals and hostile foreign powers. If a criminal establishes that a married man is accessing gay websites, or a hostile foreign Government establish that an intelligence officer is accessing lonely hearts websites, that could increase the risk of blackmail or entrapment. Knowing from ICRs...

Turkey (19 Jul 2016)

David Davies: promoting Britain’s interests abroad, which is his job. I ask the Government to reiterate again that our commitment to democracy in Turkey is tied in with our commitment to women’s rights, gay rights and the rights of Turkey’s other political and religious minorities, who may well be feeling threatened at the moment.

Backbench Business: Channel 4 (19 Jul 2016)

Graham Jones: ...any other public service broadcaster. It is the only public service broadcaster whose overall viewership is getting younger, and its transformative impact on social attitudes, by presenting the viewpoints of BAME and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, as well as people with disabilities, has been remarkable.

Co-Operatives: Maternity Discrimination (14 Jul 2016)

Gareth Thomas: ...hope the Government will lead a high-profile, ongoing campaign to change attitudes in the workplace. Government-led campaigns down the years have led to significant change. One thinks of the difference we see now with gay relationships— the work of Governments of various parties has led that change. One thinks, too, of action down the years on drink-driving and to promote the use of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jul 2016)

David Cameron: ...was a case that this Government raised again and again with the US Government, and we are pleased that it has been resolved. I thank him also for what he said about equal marriage. There are 30,000 gay people in our country who, in the past six years, have been able to get married. That is real progress. I will never forget the day at No. 10 when one of the people who works very close to...

Iraq Inquiry - Motion to Take Note (12 Jul 2016)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...the Iraqi Government in building an inclusive state? For me, human rights are fundamental, and an attack on human rights is a justification for intervention. We are seeing attacks on not only the rights of women and children but on religious freedom and on other minorities. I am incredibly proud to be a supporter of the Iraqi lesbian and gay movement, which is in a very fragile position...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Cayman Islands: LGBT People (11 Jul 2016)

Tobias Ellwood: Work to combat discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people forms an important part of our international human rights work. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office works through our Embassies and High Commissions, and through international organisations, including the Commonwealth, the EU and the UN, to promote tolerance and non-discrimination against LGBT people...

Online Abuse (7 Jul 2016)

John Nicolson: ...attacking individuals as a “slut” or a “whore”. Women in public life are often prime targets for online abuse. In Scotland, the three largest political parties are led by women, two of them gay. All three women have to deal routinely with sexist, misogynistic and homophobic tweets. The Scottish Conservative party leader, Ruth Davidson, has suffered horrendous...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Judd: estimate the scale of the damage done by the recent campaign, which included a false prospectus, a total lack of any thinking about what was to happen if there was a vote to come out, and the gay abandon with which so much of the prospectus was discarded when the result became known. That was almost deliberate sabotage of the whole concept of political responsibility. I was able to go...

Delegated Legislation: EU Referendum: Race Hate Crime (5 Jul 2016)

Stephen Doughty: that that they would not vote Labour because all we did was support the “N” word, another person pointed to a black woman in the street and told her she should go home, another told me that gay people should be killed and sent to hell, there was a race hate attack in a fish and chip shop at the end of the road, and somebody said that we needed to stand up against the Jews....

Health: HIV - Question (4 Jul 2016)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: ...drug. Do the Government agree that it is unethical, whatever the legal or financial situation, not to make the drug more available now, particularly given the alarming rise in new cases of HIV in gay men?

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Turkey: LGBT People (4 Jul 2016)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...Turkey. We regularly underline the importance of all fundamental freedoms as part of our broader dialogue with the Turkish government, including the freedom of assembly and the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or intersex persons. We did not fly the rainbow flag over our Embassy in Ankara over the weekend commencing 24 June. British Missions overseas fly the Diplomatic, Union...

Historical Child Sex Abuse - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2016)

Lord Paddick: ..., which might come as a surprise to some people. I have not been excommunicated as far as I know, although I may have given the Church just cause to do so. However, I am a reasonably high-profile gay man and noble Lords might think that I would therefore be a prime target for the sort of unfounded allegation that has been made against some others who have been mentioned today. The noble...

Hate Crime - Statement (29 Jun 2016)

Lord Black of Brentwood: ...’s LGBT community? I refer him to a report in Pink News yesterday of a mob going down Drury Lane singing, “Rule, Britannia, Britannia rules the waves. First we’ll get the Poles out. Then the gays”. Will he reassure Britain’s LGBT community that the Government will continue to do all they can to crack down on homophobic abuse and bullying?

Hate Crime (29 Jun 2016)

Stephen Doughty: ...that I regretfully spoke about in the Chamber the other day. Will the Minister make it absolutely clear that there is no hierarchy of hate crime? Whether it is against Jews, Muslims, Hindus, gay, straight, men or women, and whether it comes from the far right or indeed from the far left, it is the same thing and can have the same consequences. We should not stand for it and we have to...

Bangladesh (28 Jun 2016)

Simon Danczuk: ...careful what they wrote about. On 23 April, a university professor was hacked to death and Daesh claimed responsibility. On 25 April, two people were hacked to death, including the editor of a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender magazine, and again an al-Qaeda affiliate took responsibility. Then, on 30 April, a Hindu man was murdered and Daesh claimed responsibility. Those from the...
