Sexual Offences (Pardons etc) Bill (21 Oct 2016)

Sam Gyimah: ...clearly and comprehensively. As I said, the choice before us is not this Bill or no action at all. I was proud to announce yesterday the introduction of legislation posthumously to pardon thousands of gay and bisexual men convicted of now-abolished sexual offences. Not enough has been said of what was a big and momentous step by the Government yesterday. Many contributions today have...

Marriage and Civil Partnership (Minimum Age) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Oct 2016)

Baroness Tonge: ...UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which specifies that “child” means every human being below the age of 18. My Bill is to make illegal any marriage of a young person under the age of 18, straight or gay—and it applies to marriage and civil partnerships. I propose the measure for several reasons and have the support of several NGOs set up to demand change for young...

Sexual Offences (Pardons etc) Bill (21 Oct 2016)

Nick Herbert: ...Nicolson) on introducing this measure and on his excellent speech in support of his Bill. I welcome what he has sought to do. There is general agreement in this House that great injustice was done to gay men in the past by laws that have since been repealed. There is a great deal of regret for that injustice and a recognition that there are people who are still alive who have suffered as...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Enforcement of sections 15 and 19 (20 Oct 2016)

Louise Haigh: ..., so obviously an appeals mechanism will be needed for websites incorrectly prevented from operating. Previous such systems have wrongly filtered out websites such as breast cancer charities or forums for gay and transgender people. That is incredibly important: let us put ourselves in the shoes of a young gay man or woman, growing up in a religious household perhaps, who does not know...

Business of the House (20 Oct 2016)

Pete Wishart: ...that worse. Finally, tomorrow we have the private Member’s Bill tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for East Dunbartonshire (John Nicolson) on a very important issue. The “Turing Bill” seeks to posthumously pardon thousands of gay men who were caught up in all the anti-homosexual legislation. However, we have heard that the Government are withdrawing support for it, in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Tourism (19 Oct 2016)

Michael Fabricant: With B&Bs such as the Old Rectory on the Lake and the Ty’n y Cornel in Tal-y-llyn under new management and prepared, I hope, to do bar mitzvahs and gay weddings, does the Minister not agree with me that Welsh B&Bs offer a warm welcome to the English?

Broadcasting (18 Oct 2016)

John Nicolson: .... When we turn on the television, the nation should be reflected back at us, but too often it is not. We do not see enough black and minority faces on screen. There are also not enough lesbian and gay people in senior management positions or, more importantly, on screen as authority figures, where they should be seen. I have made this point before. The BBC has always been absolutely...

Liberation of Mosul (18 Oct 2016)

Nia Griffith: The horror that Daesh has inflicted on the people of Mosul since it captured the city in June 2014 is unimaginable: women killed for not wearing full Islamic veils and gay men thrown from buildings. We fully support the operation to liberate the city, because Daesh, in its evil ideology, must be defeated wherever it emerges. I say that not only to protect the people of Iraq and Syria who have...

The Royal Navy and the Army currently feature in Stonewall's Top 100 Employers list, and Stonewall has also publically praised Defence on our approach to...

Grammar Schools - Motion to Take Note (13 Oct 2016)

Lord Paddick: ..., that I realised I was different from the other pupils in my single-sex school. It was at a time and in a culture where homophobia was rife in society. At a school where none of the 600 boys identified as gay and in what I perceived to be a home environment intolerant of homosexuality, the feeling of isolation and loneliness was intense. At a time when most young people are exploring...

Britain-Iran Relations — [Mr David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Oct 2016)

Catherine West: ...rosy a view of Iran. I was pleased that the hon. Members for Glasgow South (Stewart Malcolm McDonald) and for Strangford (Jim Shannon) mentioned the persecution of Christians and other minority groups. We know that many gay people have a very difficult time in Iran. We also know that the arbitrary imprisonment of human rights activists is a common occurrence, which many Members raise...

Fiona Hyslop: ...and engagement of Scotland’s diverse peoples, with richer and more complex narratives emerging in the wake of greater visibility for stories from Scotland and participation by women, minority ethnic people, disabled people and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people across Scotland and across the UK. The BBC as an institution needs to have more diversity in its decision-making...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Lanarkshire (Meetings) (5 Oct 2016)

Christina McKelvie: next meet NHS Lanarkshire, I would ask that she raises with it the evidence sourced by the time for inclusive education—TIE—campaign, which shows that 95 per cent of young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex respondents report that being bullied at school impacted on their mental health. In conjunction with that, 58 per cent of LGBTI respondents admitted...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Education (29 Sep 2016)

Jenny Gilruth: constituent, Rachel, who is in secondary 5 at Glenrothes high school. She wanted to know why teaching about mental health is not a compulsory part of the curriculum. She wanted to know why lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer issues are not discussed openly in personal and social education lessons. She quoted GIRFEC—getting it right for every child—which is the Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Early Learning and Childcare Provision (29 Sep 2016)

Gillian Martin: .... Yes, members heard right: free childcare is the reason, not oil and gas. Those on the opposing benches who ask us to do more and who ask about the affordability of the programme should take note of the studies that they quote with gay abandon when they think about Scotland’s budgetary constraints. With increased productivity comes increased income tax contributions, busting the...

Scottish Parliament: Teacher Training (Inclusive Education) (28 Sep 2016)

John Swinney: ...;and eventually all teachers—to undertake training so that they are confident in tackling prejudice-based bullying in schools. We will ensure that schools address the important issues that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex young people face and that teachers have the skills, knowledge and confidence to embed inclusive approaches in their schools.

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (22 Sep 2016) not offended by some of that terminology. Let us all unite in condemning homophobia. We were just talking about mental health, and some of the reasons for mental health problems among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people relate to homophobia and homophobic bullying. Let us bring a bit of seriousness to the issue. I take responsibility; such comments are targeted at me and...
