Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Report (2nd Day) (17 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: I may have misunderstood the noble Lord and I am grateful to him for giving way. If he is objecting to the idea that the decision should not be published, how will somebody know whether an organisation is proscribed or not?

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Report (2nd Day) (17 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: It does not say that.

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Report (2nd Day) (17 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow two distinguished reviewers of counterterrorism legislation, who more or less agreed with each other. My first realisation of how pivotal the Prevent strand is came when I chaired a focus group with mothers who were concerned that their children were being lured into radicalised behaviour. They were pleading for there to be somewhere where their children,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 - Statement (11 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the noble and learned Lord told the House that the Government will act within the spirit of the legislation and propose a vote in the House of Commons by 21 January, although that is rather late. How much credence can be placed in the Government acting in the spirit of something when yesterday morning, Ministers were fanning out around the country promising that the House of...

Mobile Networks: Resilience - Question (11 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, when the Minister and his colleagues consider the resilience of the mobile phone network—I refer to my interests in the register on this matter—could he ensure that resilience for all providers is covered in respect of electricity power outages and their impact on mobile phone aerials? Most of those have a battery life of only two hours if the electric power is off.

Special Educational Needs and Funding - Question (6 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, in his question a moment ago, the noble Earl referred to the fact that a very high proportion of young children with special educational needs are excluded from school. More than a quarter of those with an SEN designation were excluded last year, and it is five times the rate when it comes to permanent exclusions. Can the Minister tell us why that is and whether the Government are...

Written Answers — Home Office: UK Visas and Immigration: Fees and Charges (5 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Baroness Manzoor on 18 October (HL Deb, col 564), when they will publish the equality impact assessment for the introduction of charges by UK Visas and Immigration for those making inquiries from abroad.

Written Answers — Treasury: VAT: Electronic Government (5 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Bates on 14 November (HL11158), how many of the compatible software products listed on GOV.UK provide specifically for the VAT Flat-Rate Scheme; and what assessment they have made of the affordability of such software.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Emergencies: Mobile Phones (4 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the reply by Lord Young of Cookham on 5 July (HL Deb, cols 766–70), what progress has been made in the introduction of mobile alert technology.

G20 Summit - Statement (3 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am not sure that the Leader of the House answered my noble friend Lady Smith’s point about a replacement for the Galileo system, which was highly trialled as being one of the subjects under discussion. Given that, as I understand it, to have a proper global positioning system you have to have in the air around 24 satellites, how quickly is this going to happen and what is going...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Report (1st Day) (3 Dec 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, in considering the amendment of the noble Baroness, Lady Jones, we have to look at the two new paragraphs (a) and (b) together. In the Bill, the Government seek to eliminate various routes by which an ingenious individual who wants, in effect, to incite people to support a terrorist organisation might create a defence. It is a combination of the two new paragraphs that seems to me...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Schools: Security (30 Nov 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Agnew of Oulton on 5 November (HL1078), when they anticipate the public consultation on revised school security guidance to commence; and whether the revised guidance will specifically address the issue of school premises coming under attack.

Violent Crime - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords who contributed; I know that the previous debate overran significantly. As we get older, we may all have cause to be grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Bertin, for tweaking and developing House of Lords procedure and practice. A number of noble Lords, including my noble friends Lady Donaghy and Lady Massey, stressed the importance of the...

Violent Crime - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: I think that is a hint. The Minister may not have been listening earlier when her noble friend Lord Agnew said quite explicitly that school pensions were being fully funded by the Government, so why is it that the schools settlement can be determined and those pensions fully funded yet at the moment she is unable to provide that commitment?

Violent Crime - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am pleased to have the opportunity to introduce this debate today, and in doing so remind the House of my various interests in the register. Nineteen days ago a man in his 30s was found with stab injuries at the end of my road. He was one of the luckier ones; his injuries were not life-threatening. However, on that same weekend the number of murders in London this year exceeded...

Television Licences: Over 75s - Question (27 Nov 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am not sure that the Minister answered my noble friend’s question. If it was a manifesto commitment of the Conservative Party that the licence fee concession would continue until 2022, why have the Government subcontracted it to the BBC to break that manifesto commitment? Does he regard the licence fee as a tax and, if so, do the Government subcontract taxes to other people?

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire (Fire and Rescue Authority) Order 2018 - Motion to Regret (21 Nov 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: I just wanted to correct the Minister. There is no PCC in Greater Manchester; there is an elected mayor.

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire (Fire and Rescue Authority) Order 2018 - Motion to Regret (21 Nov 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the Minister has, unfortunately, said something quite outrageous. I chaired the Metropolitan Police Authority for four years, and the number of times we went into private session was extremely small. Most of those meetings were held in public with television cameras and most of the national press present. That was the balance.

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire (Fire and Rescue Authority) Order 2018 - Motion to Regret (21 Nov 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, it is, as ever, a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Harris. However, I am slightly concerned that the reputation that I may have in your Lordships’ House of sometimes being rather blunt and trenchant will be sidelined by what the noble Baroness has just said. I am not going to talk about North Yorkshire at all—I appreciate that that is perhaps not in the spirit of this...
