Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iraq (5 Apr 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: Is my hon. Friend aware that on four recent occasions in Question Time in the Australian Parliament the Australian Foreign Secretary has used my involvement with the organisation Labour Friends of Iraq in an attempt to undermine the stance adopted by the Australian Labour party? However, that has led only to establishing better links between Labour Friends of Iraq and the Australian Labour...

Adjournment (Easter) (24 Mar 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: In response to the hon. Member for Rochford and Southend, East (Sir Teddy Taylor), I agree that young people are switched off by party politics, but they often have a great interest in politics in a wider sense. They are very much involved in a big campaign that is taking place at the moment—Make Poverty History. They have great concern about environmental matters, the quality of life...

Business of the House (24 Mar 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the joint report on electoral registration published today by the Select Committees on Constitutional Affairs and on the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister? I doubt whether it would be fruitful to have a debate about electoral registration before 11 April—I noticed that my right hon. Friend did not mention 12 April or any subsequent dates when he...

Commission for Africa (14 Mar 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: My right hon. Friend said in his statement that there was more democracy in Africa now than before. That is welcome, but is he aware that democracy is about much more than votes? The civic society provisions mentioned by my right hon. Friend the Member for Dumbarton (Mr. McFall) are part of that, as are civil liberties. How do we help to build a grass-roots Africa? Tackling poverty is part...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Iraq (14 Mar 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: Have the Iraqi Government asked for any extra military help from Britain following the withdrawal of Dutch troops to the west of Basra? If there has been such a request, what has been our response?

Support For Members Who Have Chosen Not To Take Their Seats (10 Mar 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: The Leader of the House misunderstood the intervention that I made earlier. I was supporting the Government's position, which is quite unusual for me at the moment. My argument is that not only do Sinn Fein Members not do many of the things that the hon. Gentleman has mentioned, but they do not attend the Building so that the rest of us can have access to and discussions with them. I have...

Support For Members Who Have Chosen Not To Take Their Seats (10 Mar 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: Is not one of the problems that Gerry Adams and his colleagues have never made sufficient use of the opportunity to visit the House and enable the rest of us, who disagree with many of their positions, to contact them, nobble them and press differing views? They took the money and ran. There is therefore a case for removing the money, although the argument about the facilities for serving...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: G7 Presidency (10 Mar 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: Is my hon. Friend aware that emails to Members are flooding in from young people who are galvanised by the "Make Poverty History" campaign? That is probably what led to the incredible number of Members—412—signing early-day motion 9. What can we do as a package during our presidency of the G7 to ensure that serious advances are made towards the objectives of that campaign, which means so...

Orders of the Day — Electoral Registration (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 — Restoration to Electoral Register of Names Previously Removed (24 Feb 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: The rolling register has moved us away from the 15 October qualifying date requirement. When people move their residence to new areas, they can now go on to what used to be called the supplementary lists. At one time, there was an arrangement whereby people could only get on to the published monthly supplementary lists by meeting the qualifying date of 15 October, or September, I believe,...

Orders of the Day — Electoral Registration (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 — Restoration to Electoral Register of Names Previously Removed (24 Feb 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: I have some sympathy with new clause 1 on rolling registration, given my long-term interest in the subject. When the Representation of the People Act 2000 was introduced, the Minister responsible for piloting it through the House was kind enough to call me the father of the rolling register. In many ways, rolling registration is in its infancy. There is no reason why it should not be a much...

Orders of the Day — Electoral Registration (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords] (24 Feb 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: Would it not be difficult for a person who did not exist to secure a photo identity card?

Mr Harry Barnes: If she will introduce proposals to extend the provisions of the victims charter to Government Departments and agencies which can instigate criminal actions on behalf of complainants.

Oral Answers to Questions — Solicitor-General: Victims Charter (24 Feb 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: Is it not the case that under the victims charter, a victim of crime can obtain an explanation from the police or the Crown Prosecution Service if charges relating to the crime they have suffered from are being reduced, dropped or just not proceeded with? I have been pursuing a case for six years with the Department of Trade and Industry, where it has powers to prosecute under the Fair...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Decommissioning (23 Feb 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: Do we know what the IRA is doing with its money? Are there any signs that it is recommissioning rather than decommissioning, or is it just acting like a mafia?

Northern Ireland (22 Feb 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: Will my right hon. Friend look at the total finances of Sinn Fein and the Provisional IRA with a view to extending mainland provisions on the monitoring and control of the funding of political parties to Northern Ireland? Will he also ensure that the Assets Recovery Agency directs its attention to Sinn Fein, the Provisional IRA and various individuals? That can be done on an all-Ireland basis...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Social Housing (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: My right hon. Friend the Minister for Housing and Planning recently visited North Wingfield in my constituency, in connection with its pathfinder scheme, which hopefully is making progress. Would one of the Ministers on the Front Bench like to revisit North-East Derbyshire? There is a place called Clay Cross, which has a great deal of experience of council housing and we would really like to...

Orders of the Day — Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill — [1st Allotted Day]: New Clause 3 — Racial and religious hatred (7 Feb 2005)

Mr Harry Barnes: If the purpose of the measure is to protect Muslims, why has it been universalised so that it also applies to a whole host of other groups in society?
