Distributed Ledger Technologies - Question (18 Jul 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, in the various discussions taking place, to what extent is the Home Office involved in these considerations? In particular, this is because distributed ledger technology could provide a means by which people would be able to verify their identity without the so-called concerns that people used to have about identity cards with a centrally maintained register held by the Government....

Charities: National Fund - Question (16 Jul 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I understand that, under circumstances in which—for whatever reason—trustees cannot fulfil their duties, the Charity Commission has the power to transfer the assets of one charity to another. If these trustees cannot fulfil their duties, because paying off the entire national debt is difficult, would it not have made more sense for the Charity Commission to have...

Brexit: European Commission Discussions - Question (9 Jul 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: Will the Minister tell us precisely where he differs from the analysis set out by the former Secretary of State in his resignation letter?

Terrorism: Emergency Communications - Question for Short Debate (5 Jul 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to improve communications for use in the event of a terrorist incident or other major emergency.

Terrorism: Emergency Communications - Question for Short Debate (5 Jul 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I should start by referring to my various interests in the register, in particular my role as UK co-ordinator for the Electric Infrastructure Security Council. I am grateful to the distinguished list of noble Lords who have put their names down to speak. Less than two weeks ago, Michael Dowden, the London Fire Brigade watch manager for North Kensington gave evidence to the Grenfell...

Amesbury Incident - Statement (5 Jul 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: We are all grateful to the Minister for the Statement even though there is only a limited amount that she can tell us. What arrangements have been put in place for the health and welfare of the first responders from the emergency services who will have attended the scene?

European Council - Statement (2 Jul 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The noble Baroness the Leader of the House agreed with the noble Lord, Lord Howell, that we really should not worry about when an agreement is going to be reached, because it is going to be reached right at the end. Does that mean that the Government have given up on the target of reaching agreement at the October summit? If so, how much time is Parliament going to have to consider the terms...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill - Second Reading (29 Jun 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I too echo the thanks of the House to my noble friend Lady Donaghy for bringing forward this Bill and to my honourable friends Chris Bryant and Holly Lynch for their work on these measures in the House of Commons. I remind the House of my interests as co-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Policing and Security; my chairmanship of the National Crime Agency’s...

UK Territorial Seas: Incidents - Question (14 Jun 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I too am grateful to the noble Earl for the briefing that was provided yesterday. The improvements that have come with the co-ordination activity are welcome, but it is co-ordinating limited resources, as the noble Earl has admitted. He talked about it being intelligence led. Perhaps he cannot share it with us, because it would be difficult, but can he ensure and guarantee the House...

Immigration and Nationality (Fees) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Regret (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: Would the Minister explain why it is relevant to the cost of these children getting citizenship, when they have lived their entire lives in this country, to pay for the borders when they have probably never crossed them?

Stalkers: Electronic Tagging - Question (11 Jun 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I do not think that the noble Baroness answered the question from the noble Lord, Lord Hogan-Howe. Will it be possible for the police to have real-time monitoring or will it be subcontracted to a third party—when, inevitably, the notification that a stalker is close to somebody will come much later?

Prisons: Women with Dependants - Question (11 Jun 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, 94—or maybe 96—women have died in prison since my noble friend Lady Corston’s report was published. This recommends precisely what the Minister has just talked about—that custodial short sentences for women should be stopped and phased out. Has the Minister read the recent report from Inquest on the deaths of those women? How often in the last year have...

Police: Firearms - Question (4 Jun 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I refer to my interests to do with policing in the register. Can the Minister confirm that it is proving difficult to recruit up to the required level of firearms officers at present? Can she tell us the reason? Is it because there is now too small a pool of police officers to recruit from? Is it because police officers who accept this responsibility are not paid any extra? Is it...

Asylum Seekers - Private Notice Question (15 May 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The noble Baroness told us in answer to the question from the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, that there is an automatic reporting system when force is used. In the cases that have come to light from Her Majesty’s inspectorate, how many of those reports of force being used were received by the department and was the force considered proportionate by the department? What does the Home...

Animal Products: Labelling and Packaging - Question (14 May 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I declare my interests in the register on this matter. In his Answer to the noble Lord, Lord Teverson, the Minister talked about the role of trading standards. The noble Baroness, Lady Browning, raised the issue of animal feed, which is also largely monitored by trading standards. Can he tell us by what proportion the budgets of trading standards departments have been cut in the...

Asylum Seekers: Students - Question (9 May 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: Can the Minister tell us how many young people caught up in the backwash of the Windrush scandal have been denied student loans because of uncertainty about their residency position in this country?

Probation: Voluntary Sector - Question (24 Apr 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the Minister said that, for some reason, the CRCs did not need to be subject to the Freedom of Information Act because there was a chief inspector. Could he explain exactly why the chief inspector is a substitute for citizens posing questions to and seeking information from the CRCs?

Terrorism: Public Alert Technology - Question (16 Apr 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government when they will authorise the use of public alert technology for mobile phone systems for use by the police and emergency services in the event of a terrorist incident.

Terrorism: Public Alert Technology - Question (16 Apr 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for that reply, if somewhat bemused by it. Three trials were organised by the Cabinet Office and conducted in 2013, which is nearly five years ago. There was then a report from the Cabinet Office saying that the trials had been extremely successful, and it made a series of recommendations. Why is it taking so long to implement a scheme that could save...

Brexit: Immigration - Question (29 Mar 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the noble Lord is entirely convincing about how confident he is that there will be a technological solution in time. He has just told your Lordships that the arrangements will continue through the implementation and transition stage. What if there is no transition stage because we crash out of the EU? What happens then in a year’s time?
