Brexit: Arrangements for EU Citizens - Statement (5 Nov 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, can the Minister confirm reports that victims of modern slavery and women who have been trafficked who are EU citizens will be required to pay a fee to the Home Office before they are allowed to stay? Can she explain the reasons behind that, given how difficult it can be to enable victims of modern slavery to come forward to be rescued?

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Committee (1st Day) (29 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The noble Baroness says it is difficult to define. Presumably, the court would then have to interpret it and would say that this is clearly a pattern which is designed to have this effect.

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Committee (1st Day) (29 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I apologise for not having spoken on Second Reading, but I came to this debate on the basis that I had one point to make. Having heard such a range of views, I am afraid that I now have three or four. To keep the flow going, I shall pick up on Amendment 5 and the argument that there should be an exemption for organisations that cease to be proscribed. I start from the same position...

October European Council - Statement (22 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The Lord Privy Seal declined to give us an answer, one way or the other, on whether or not civil servants have been war-gaming arrangements for a future referendum. However, can she tell us—this she should be able to answer—whether she, her officials, the usual channels and the parliamentary authorities in this House have been war-gaming how this House will deal with the flow of...

Crime (Overseas Production Orders) Bill [HL] - Report (22 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: I may have misheard the Minister and therefore misunderstood her argument, but she seemed to be saying at one point that my noble friend’s amendments were not necessary because this is already covered under the PACE regulations. Is that the reason for resisting it—it is not necessary because it goes no further—or is she suggesting that there are elements of it which do go...

Crime (Overseas Production Orders) Bill [HL] - Report (22 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: So there is no objection to what my noble friend has tabled; the Minister is saying simply that it is not necessary?

Youth Crime: London - Question (22 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the noble Baroness has told us about a blizzard of initiatives—some worth £150,000, some worth £700,000 and so on—but that does not alter the fact that the totality of services, by which I mean the whole-system approach, which is surely what is needed here, has suffered. We have seen huge reductions in local government funding, in health funding and in...

UK Visas and Immigration: Customer Charges - Question (18 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how much UK Visas and Immigration charges its customers applying from outside the United Kingdom for making enquiries by (1) telephone, and (2) email; and how much money they have collected from those charges since 1 June 2017.

UK Visas and Immigration: Customer Charges - Question (18 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, £1.37 per minute plus the carrier costs and £5.48 for an email? This issue was drawn to my attention by a postgraduate researcher based in India seeking to clarify their visa position. The costs are not insignificant to such a person. The Minister mentioned commercial sensitivity because this is a privatised service. Presumably that means that, in this case, a graduate...

Police and Crime Commissioners - Question (15 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I refer to my interests as listed in the register. When I was involved in appointing chief officers in the police service, we had the benefit of receiving advice from the Home Office senior appointments panel, which the noble Lord, Lord Paddick, referred to, which told us whether the shortlist was adequate and broad enough, and we also had the benefit of advice from Her...

Prisoners: Purposeful Activity - Question (15 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Prisons reported in June that 38% of those in young offender institutions are locked in their cells for more than 22 hours a day. How on earth can they receive any proper training and rehabilitation if they are locked up for such lengths of time? Why has the Ministry of Justice repeatedly refused to collect data on how long people are locked up...

NHS: Dangerous Waste and Body Parts Disposal - Statement (10 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, what lessons has the Department of Health learned from this incident?

Infrastructure and Projects Authority - Question (10 Oct 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the noble Lord has given a very interesting answer, but he did not address the central question that my noble friend asked: what did Ministers do in response to those red/amber ratings in this case?

Police Forces: Financial Stability - Statement (12 Sep 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The Minister has referred at least twice, or perhaps three times, to the incredible efforts of her colleague the Policing Minister in going round all 43 forces. Can she tell the House how many of the police and crime commissioners, whom he no doubt met on those visits, expressed support for the current level of policing resources that was available to them and what proportion of the...

UK-EU Future Relationship: Young Voters - Question (10 Sep 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, in his initial Answer to this Question the Minister talked about the various engagement activities that were taking place with young people. Could he tell the House how he personally has engaged with the people whom we are talking about now, who were disenfranchised because of their age at the last referendum? Could he tell us whether the minutes of those discussions are available...

Immigration Policy: Children and Parents - Question (10 Sep 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, can the Minister clarify that answer, because the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, asked whether records were kept of the considerations taken into account in reaching the decisions? Are they kept or not?

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill - Second Reading (7 Sep 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend Lady Massey for bringing this Bill forward in your Lordships’ House. I am also grateful to my honourable friend Steve Reed for the work he did in bringing the Bill through the House of Commons following the death of Seni Lewis at Bethlem Royal Hospital in 2010. We should pay tribute to the persistence of the family of Seni Lewis in wanting to...

Prisons: Rehabilitation - Question for Short Debate (6 Sep 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, we are all grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for the opportunity to debate this important issue. My interest stems from being asked in 2014 by the then Minister for Prisons to review the 87 self-inflicted deaths of young people in prison between April 2007 and the end of 2013. Every one of the young people who died and whose cases we examined was someone’s son or...

Salisbury Update - Statement (5 Sep 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The noble Baroness the Leader of the House, in answer to a question from my noble friend Lady Smith, listed about £14 million of additional support that has been given to the local police force and the local community. Is she able to tell us the estimated cost of the investigations carried out and the work done by the security agencies and the counterterrorist police? I suspect that is...

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....
