Human Rights Act 1998 - Motion to Take Note (14 Jul 2022)

Lord Cashman: ...Human Rights Commission. I apologise for being blunt, but when I think about the practical impact of the Human Rights Act it is personal, because the impact of the Act has been deeply profound for LGBT people like me.

50 Years of Pride in the UK (30 Jun 2022)

Mike Freer: ..., bigotry does not rest in any one political party, and I remember the terrible election campaign that the Lib Dems ran against him, which was really quite shameful.

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill - Second Reading (28 Jun 2022)
