Parliamentary question: LGBT Equality

Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Victoria Atkins MP, The Minister for Women on 13 Sep 2018
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP
"Does the Minister agree that we need to do more to help our LGBT friends around the world, particularly those who are seeking asylum? Will she therefore condemn the Home Office’s approach at the moment? It is deporting one of my constituents back to Venezuela after he has applied for asylum and married someone here and lived in Britain for three years. The Home Office still says that Venezuela is a safe place for an LGBT person to live. It even recommends that his husband moves back with him."
Victoria Atkins MP, The Minister for Women
"Of course I am concerned to hear about LGBT people in Venezuela being treated as despicably as the hon. Gentleman has described. If I may, I will take the opportunity to invite him to write to the relevant Minister. I would certainly hope that we can look into the matter in more detail."
