Female Genital Mutilation - Question (7 Mar 2019)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: Does the Minister know about the spoon campaign—that is what I call it—where young girls are told about putting a small spoon inside their underwear when they go through checks at airports? This alerts the security officers to the fact that these young girls are frightened and need to be taken care of, so that their parents cannot take them out of the country to be cut.

Local Elections (Northern Ireland) (Election Expenses) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (5 Mar 2019)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, these Benches welcome the order. We support Articles 2 and 3, which will bring local election rules into line with those for other elections in Northern Ireland, as we heard from the Minister. We especially welcome and support Article 4, to exempt disability-related expenses from the definition of “election expenses”. This is an important move to help to close the gap between...

Mental Health (Northern Ireland) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (28 Nov 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I thank the Minister for introducing this order. We on these Benches of course recognise that the proposed change is needed and is a matter of both patient and public safety. It is certainly in the public interest for this change to be made. We also recognise that the political parties in Northern Ireland have been briefed on the proposed changes. However, we are again deeply...

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire (Fire and Rescue Authority) Order 2018 - Motion to Regret (21 Nov 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: Certainly, when I chaired my police authority, we went all around the county and everybody was welcome; we had lots of people there. So what is happening now?

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire (Fire and Rescue Authority) Order 2018 - Motion to Regret (21 Nov 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, my contribution to this regret Motion will necessarily be rather more targeted, as the area in question is my area of North Yorkshire, the largest single rural county in England. I was a county councillor there for 20 years and chaired its police authority for a number of those. The Minister certainly knows my firm opposition to the introduction of police and crime commissioners....

Children Act 1989 (Amendment) (Female Genital Mutilation) Bill [HL] - Committee (26 Oct 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, as we have heard, the Bill would insert a reference to Section 5A of, and Schedule 2 to, the Female Genital Mutilation Act 2003 into Section 8 of the Children Act 1989. By doing so, the Bill would amend the Children Act 1989 to state that proceedings under Section 5A of and Schedule 2 to the Female Genital Mutilation Act 2003 are “family proceedings”. I pay tribute to the work...

Good Friday Agreement: Impact of Brexit - Motion to Take Note (11 Oct 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I too thank the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, for securing this debate on perhaps one of the most important consequences of Brexit. When we reflect now on the arguments that were made and the issues that were raised in the run-up to the referendum in 2016, it is astonishing how little attention was paid in the rest of the UK to the consequences for Northern Ireland. I do not need to tell...

Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (18 Jul 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I echo the warm remarks made about David Ford by my noble friends and the noble Lords, Lord Bew and Lord Kilclooney, for which I thank them. He is a remarkable politician who has served Northern Ireland well over many years. I wish him a long and very happy retirement from Northern Ireland politics. Almost everyone in Northern Ireland voted in support of the Good Friday agreement....

Rural Areas: Public Services - Question for Short Debate (9 Jul 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I live in the beautiful county of North Yorkshire, in the famous and equally beautiful town of Richmond. It is not to be confused with its southern namesake, because my Richmond is the original Richmond of all the Richmonds in the world—currently 56 of them. Four Members of your Lordships’ House have taken this title in the past 20 years, each of us acknowledging our good...

Mission and Pastoral etc. (Amendment) Measure - Motion to Direct (22 Mar 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, this will also be my last and brief comment on these Measures. In supporting them from these Benches, it was interesting to hear that the amendments were based on proposals by a Simplification Task Group, established by the Archbishops’ Council. I could not help feeling that we might do well to adopt a similar task group for some of our legislation.

Legislative Reform Measure - Motion to Direct (22 Mar 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I too thank the right reverend Prelate for a very clear exposition of this Measure. I echo the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, in saying how fortunate we are in having the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss, as our chairman. She can indeed cut through obfuscation. We on these Benches are extremely happy to deem this Measure expedient. My concern was exactly that expressed by...

Building Safety Update - Statement (15 Mar 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, is the noble Lord aware of the real problems in the private blocks of flats that the cost being quoted for residents to have the cladding taken off and replaced is around £30,000 per person? That is absolutely unconscionable. What are the Government doing about making sure that there is some help for these people?
