Arrangement of Business - Announcement (18 Jul 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: In the timetable that my noble friend the Government Chief Whip has just set out, would it be possible for the House to have a proper day’s debate on the Covid inquiry report, which is due to be published in about half an hour? This is clearly of exceptional importance and the whole nation should take it extremely seriously.

Home Insulation - Question (14 May 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, what assessment has the Minister made of the report placed by his department on the government website last month saying that there were major problems with the supply chains necessary for the development of offshore supplies? What are the Government going to do about it?

Public Bus Collisions - Question (13 May 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the Minister says that it is a matter of the police enforcing them. Will he tell us how exactly they are expected to do that, given their current level of resourcing and that there is no system of licensing or, indeed, of identifying cyclists, who may simply cycle away having committed the offences to which he refers?

Road Pricing - Question (29 Apr 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the Minister is impressive in her attempts to explain away the huge fiscal holes that this Government are digging for themselves and for future Governments. Can she comment on the rather strange leaflet that many residents of London have received, apparently from the Conservative mayoral candidate, purporting to be a penalty notice for a road pricing scheme that does not exist and...

Jewish Community in London: Safety - Question (25 Apr 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, can the Minister comment on the take-up of grants for the protection of religious premises from attacks?

Property Agents: Regulation - Question (18 Apr 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I declare a former interest in that I used to chair National Trading Standards. The Minister will be aware that the department already funds an estate agents and letting agents regulator through National Trading Standards. Would it not make sense to extend the remit of that regulatory function carried out by Trading Standards into this field? That could presumably be done fairly...

Iran and Israel - Statement (15 Apr 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I refer to my interests in the register. I am grateful to the Lord Privy Seal for the comments that he has made. He has praised the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy and, no doubt, he will get round to mentioning the Army in a moment. Is he not aware of the widespread feeling of disappointment that there was in our armed services about the failure to increase the defence budget in...

Economic Growth (Regulatory Functions) (Amendment) Order 2024 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (15 Apr 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for his introduction to the order. I assume that one of the objectives it to try to bring some rationality to the different range of regulatory functions that exist between the different regulators. That is perhaps a laudable objective. But it is a missed opportunity in this case, as nothing is said in this order—nor has the Minister indicated that he...

National Minimum Wage Legislation - Question (21 Mar 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, is it not the case that, two years ago, the Government undertook to close the loophole which enabled P&O Ferries to pay way below the minimum wage? Has the Minister seen the reports in yesterday’s newspapers that many of its employees are currently being paid half the minimum wage? What are the Government doing about this?

Covid-19: Lockdown Costs and Benefits - Question (13 Mar 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I refer to my interests in the register. I am grateful to the Minister for how much she wants to take note of whatever emerges from the inquiry of the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Hallett. Why then are Government already unpicking some of the very practical arrangements that were put in place during the pandemic? If the Minister wants evidence of that, perhaps she should listen...

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Mar 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, will the Minister just explain how all of that works if this was a post on X at midnight?

Regulator of Community Interest Companies - Question (11 Mar 2024)

Regulator of Community Interest Companies - Question (11 Mar 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The very phrase “community interest company” generates a warm feeling among the public. It makes the organisations concerned sound like charities. But charities are subject to charity law and to regulation, in particular about how they fundraise or raise money on the street; they require licences and are obliged to follow a code of conduct. Why does the Minister think that there are...

Regulator of Community Interest Companies - Question (11 Mar 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I hesitate to prolong this, but the Inside Success Union is not the only example of a community interest company that has decided that it does not wish to be subject to regulation, in particular concerning raising money directly from the public. The Minister talked about the relatively small number of complaints received by the regulator. Is he aware that the regulator prides...

Criminal Jurors - Question ( 6 Mar 2024)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the noble and learned Lord opposite raised the question of accommodation for jurors in circumstances in which they operate within the courts. What consideration is being given to the position of witnesses, some of whom may be traumatised by what they are being required to do, or traumatised by other witnesses in the case? Is there sufficient being done to ensure that they have...
