Nurseries and Schools: Protection from Terrorism - Question (8 Feb 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what measures they are taking to protect nurseries and schools from terrorist attack.

Nurseries and Schools: Protection from Terrorism - Question (8 Feb 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper and I refer to my interests in policing and security as set out in the register.

Nurseries and Schools: Protection from Terrorism - Question (8 Feb 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, not for the first time I think that the Minister has drawn the short straw on the Government Front Bench, in that this is really a Question on what the Department for Education is doing about this. Two years ago I made a recommendation that every school governing body should appoint one of their members to take a lead in overseeing work on security and protecting pupils in the event...

Schools: Indoctrination - Question (6 Feb 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, what consultations and discussions has the Minister had with the Security Service and with counterterrorism policing about the very high incidence of the children of people who are subjects of interest for counterterrorism investigations turning out to be home schooled? Does that not suggest that there is a prima facie case for much more substantial registration and regulation of...

Rough Sleeping - Question (1 Feb 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the Minister told us proudly that the Government have set themselves the target of halving the number of rough sleepers by 2022. That would bring it back down to the number they inherited from the Labour Government in 2010. Whose fault is the doubling in the number of rough sleepers? Is it a consequence of government policy on housing benefit and of other cuts in social care and...

Crime: Scooter and Moped Gangs - Question (23 Jan 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, in the light of that answer, perhaps the noble Baroness can explain why the young people concerned are taking off their helmets. More particularly, she talked about increased funding. Why is it, then, that the Home Office refuses to pay the full amount of compensation to the Metropolitan Police for its national and international functions, although it has agreed the sum of money...

Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2016 (Consequential Provisions) Order 2017 - Motion to Approve (10 Jan 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I hope that the Minister will be able to answer on behalf of the United Kingdom Government and not simply on behalf of the Scotland Office, because this raises a whole number of implications. The idea of integrating the Scottish component of the British Transport Police into Police Scotland raises a number of issues. I admit that when I first heard about this proposal, the cynical...

Transparency of the Parole Board and Victim Support - Statement (9 Jan 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, that brings us back to the question that the noble Lord, Lord German, asked, to which the Minister was not able to give an answer because of time. Has there been any pressure on the Parole Board to deal more speedily with the backlog of IPP cases? I think that we need to know. I understood that the principle of IPP sentences was to protect the public. Clearly, the view of many...

Brexit: Environmental Enforcement Agency - Question (8 Jan 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, can the Minister tell the House to whom this new agency will be accountable? Will it be accountable to government Ministers, whom it might criticise, or will it be accountable to Parliament?

HMP Liverpool - Question (21 Dec 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the noble and learned Lord practises insouciance in response to these questions, particularly in saying that he cannot comment on a leaked report. Perhaps he could comment on last month’s report of the Chief Inspector of Prisons, which highlighted conditions in youth offender institutions. It said that it was routine for young boys to be confined to their cells for more than...

Serious Fraud Office - Question (13 Dec 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I refer to my interests in policing—in particular that I chair the independent reference group for the National Crime Agency. Can the noble Baroness explain to us why the National Crime Agency has been given these particular responsibilities and why the task has not been passed to the City of London Police, which has the lead responsibility for fraud matters? I do not suggest...

Serious Fraud Office - Question (13 Dec 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: In the light of this line of questioning, which is separate from the one I developed earlier, can the noble Baroness tell us what has happened to the Government’s national infrastructure policing review, which of course could have an impact on transport? Alternatively, you could argue that infrastructure is part of the economic system and therefore may be impacted on by the move. Where...

Brexit: Release of Impact Assessments - Statement (28 Nov 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The noble Lord has told us that we are ignoring the result of the referendum. Nobody is arguing about the result of the referendum. However he did say in response to my noble friend Lady Hayter’s question that he had read “some” of these sectoral analyses, but he did not answer her question about what those sectoral analyses told him. He simply asserted that it is in the...

NHS: Deficit - Question (22 Nov 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, in the light of the quarterly performance report published by NHS Improvement on 16 November, what is their current projection for the aggregate deficit of NHS provider organisations at the end of this financial year.

NHS: Deficit - Question (22 Nov 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for that Answer. He glided over the fact that the level of deficit in trusts seems to be rising rather more rapidly than the Government can cope with. Two weeks ago, the Nuffield Trust, the Health Foundation and the King’s Fund produced a joint report that said that the levels of funding then planned for the NHS were, “far below what is...

Brexit: Tourism - Question (20 Nov 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the noble Baroness has not given the guarantee that my noble friend Lord Adonis asked for. Can she tell us what proportion of flights in or out of the United Kingdom are to Europe—or, in the light of her answer to the noble Lord, Lord Hannay, what proportion are to or from the United States, and therefore how many are at risk because the Government cannot give that guarantee?

Brexit: Sectoral Impact Assessments - Private Notice Question (2 Nov 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: Will the Minister explain precisely what the difference is between a sector analysis and an impact assessment? Does a sector analysis not include any assessment of impact, or is it really just playing with words to try to avoid the obligation that, if the Government are keen on transparency, they should put these documents in the public domain? If they are simply analyses of sectors, why...

Deaths in Police Custody - Statement (30 Oct 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, as a former chair of the Independent Advisory Panel on Deaths in Custody, and as someone who gave evidence to Dame Elish, I very much welcome her report. However, I am somewhat disappointed that after 11 months of consideration, the Government’s response—although quite voluminous—is quite so thin. Two of its proposals are to set up another two working groups. What...

Police: Funding - Question (26 Oct 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the sustainability of the current level of funding available for police forces in England and Wales.

Police: Funding - Question (26 Oct 2017)

Lord Harris of Haringey: That is a very complacent response. Does the noble Baroness understand the concerns expressed by Chief Superintendent Gavin Thomas, president of the Police Superintendents’ Association, when he says that a “perfect storm” is developing in policing, with staff cuts, new threats and a rise in crime, and with half of senior officers showing signs of mental ill-health as a...
