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...

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.

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.

What happens then in a year’s time?

Brexit: Border Control - Question (29 Mar 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, the noble Baroness will recall that she told me on 19 December last year that the number of staff in Border Force had fallen over the last four years by 845. Last week, the Home Secretary said that there would be an extra 1,000 staff, but it subsequently transpired that some of those would be to replace staff who are currently leaving Border Force. Will there actually be any...

Manchester Arena Attack Review - Statement (28 Mar 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am sure that we all want to pay tribute to the emergency service workers on the night—in particular those who carried on caring for victims even though they were being instructed to withdraw from the area because of the risk of supplementary explosions. The issue of communications and the failure on this occasion of Vodafone have been raised already. Will the noble Baroness...

Worboys Case and the Parole Board - Statement (28 Mar 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The noble and learned Lord has told us repeatedly of the importance of the Parole Board’s independence, and he responded positively to all the statements made around the House about the integrity of and contribution made by its outgoing chairman. Can he therefore explain the thinking of the Secretary of State that Nick Hardwick’s position was untenable, essentially requiring him...

Salisbury Incident Update - Statement (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, when I did a review two years ago into London’s preparedness for a major terrorist incident, I was informed that the number of emergency service staff, particularly in the ambulance service, trained and equipped to deal with CBRN incidents had reduced substantially in recent years, partly because of a change in the assessment of the intelligence of the risk of such an attack...

Digital Forensic Services - Question (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, more than 20 police forces have had to bail out key forensic science services because of the decision of the Government in 2012 to close the highly regarded national Forensic Science Service. Will those police forces be compensated, and precisely what benefits have accrued from the decision to break up the national Forensic Science Service?

Leveson Inquiry Update - Statement (1 Mar 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: The Minister tells us, and the House agrees, that we should all want a thriving local newspaper environment. However, the Statement talks about 200 local newspapers having closed since 2015. What are the Government’s proposals to try to ensure that we continue to have an environment in which there are thriving local newspapers? In similar vein, the Secretary of State talks about issues...

Security and Policing: Facial Recognition Technology - Question for Short Debate (1 Mar 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, first I apologise to the noble Baroness, Lady Jones.

Security and Policing: Facial Recognition Technology - Question for Short Debate (1 Mar 2018)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, as I was about to say, it is frankly not good enough for government Whips to arrange for a notice to be sent out by email at 12.51 pm to say that a debate is about to start. If there has been any discourtesy it has been from the government Whips to myself. If the noble Baroness, Lady Jones, and the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, are content, I will say just two or three words—I do...

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...
