Police Reform Bill [HL] (16 Apr 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I am disappointed again that the Minister does not feel that he can accept two small amendments. One amendment relates to the general functions of police authorities and support for what they do. When the police authority that I chaired for a number of years wanted to employ an extra clerk or sub-clerk, we went through hoops with the police force, especially—to my regret—with...

Dental Auxiliaries (Amendment) Regulations 2002 (14 May 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I, too, thank the Minister for so clearly outlining the content of these measures. This is a very new area for me, but I was most interested to hear his introductory remarks. Noble Lords on these Benches consider these provisions to be very sensible, and are very happy to support them. However, I should simply add that the training area is a subject upon which we should like to hear...

Deregulation (Correction of Birth and Death Entries in Registers or Other Records) Order 2002 (14 May 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, noble Lords on these Benches believe that this, too, is a most sensible order. It will certainly simplify what was a very technical and potentially disputative problem. We support the measure.

Special Constables (1 Jul 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, is the Minister saying that the campaign, which was launched on 2nd January by the Minister, John Denham, and which cost half a million pounds, has not proved to be successful? What response has there been to those proposals?

Spending Review (15 Jul 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, did the Minister detect the Chancellor's characteristic modesty when he did not allow himself to spell out whether the extra money that he will provide for policing takes account of the deepening crisis in police pensions?

Commons Amendment (22 Jul 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I, too, agree that we have come a long way from the original draft. I welcome much of what we have worked on in this House and what they have worked on in another place. But, like my noble friend Lord Dholakia, I ask why the Home Secretary still feels that he needs the powers, and what evidence he has that police authorities will not have regard to the national policing plan. They...

Northern Cyprus (6 Nov 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, my contribution will be brief as my knowledge of this beautiful island is desperately small. In declaring my interest I must tell your Lordships that I visited Cyprus at the invitation of the Republic of Cyprus Government for three days in June this year. Your Lordships will say that that is hardly enough time to form much of an opinion. But it showed in the starkest and clearest...

Licensing Bill [HL] (26 Nov 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, when I first looked at the Bill, I turned to the schedules, where the meat usually resides. Schedule 6 gives us the minor and consequential amendments—23 and a bit pages of them. Schedule 7 gives us the repeals to the current law on licensing—six pages, including Acts going back to 1743. Twenty one whole Acts are repealed, together with a plethora of sections in a host of other...

Emergency Planning (4 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Roper for securing the debate. My contribution will be from the perspective of local authority involvement. During the 1970s and in the 1980s—when I was a very new county councillor—greater public awareness and cynicism painted a picture of civil defence activities as futile and vaguely ridiculous. I remember some local authorities decided to protect...

European Communities (Definition of Treaties) (Agreement on Trade, Development and Co-operation Between the European Community and its Member States and the Republic of South Africa) Order 2002 (5 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, this is unfamiliar territory for me, but this is a non-controversial measure, which we on these Benches welcome. We very much welcome the agreement on trade development and co-operation between South Africa and the European Union. As we heard, the European Union is South Africa's main trading and investment partner. Therefore, it is wholly appropriate that the agreement will greatly...

Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (Codes of Practice) (Statutory Powers of Stop and Search) Order 2002 (10 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, we on these Benches offer our support for this statutory instrument. We do so because we are satisfied that the draft code has been prepared in consultation with key police and community organisations. It has, as we have heard, the backing of the Lawrence steering group which monitors the Home Secretary's action plan in relation to the Stephen Lawrence inquiry report. Here, I must...

Licensing Bill [HL] (12 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: The pubs in my part of the world have weekly darts competitions. All local pubs do; they even hold darts leagues.

Police (Northern Ireland) Bill [HL] (16 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I believe that this is the third Bill we have had on Northern Ireland policing in four years. I very well remember my baptism of fire when I spoke for the first time on a Bill in your Lordships' House. That was during discussion of what became the Police (Northern Ireland) Act 2000, which we on these Benches very much supported. So we are very pleased to see the Government taking a...

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: moved Amendment No. 89: Page 3, line 16, at end insert— "( ) section 17 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (c. 37)."

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: On Clause 4, the helpful Explanatory Notes that accompany the Bill say: "Its proposals are intended to ensure that the provision of additional opportunities for licensable activities are matched by additional measures enabling the police and licensing authorities to act promptly to maintain public order and safety". I believe that my amendment fulfils that intention. At Second Reading, I...

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I am most grateful to the Minister for that response. I shall look very carefully at his comments on the appeal body which will certainly require a little study. Nevertheless, I feel that this is an important provision to include in the Bill and I ask the Government to reconsider doing so. As my noble friend Lord Tope suggested, the provision would remind local authorities of their duties...

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: moved Amendment No. 91A: Page 98, line 10, after "authorities" insert "and the police"

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: In moving the amendment on behalf of my noble friend Lord Redesdale, I shall be mercifully brief. In view of the significant role of the police in enforcing the Bill's provisions, we believe that the guidance should apply also to the police, and that it should be so stated in the Bill. I speak also to Amendment No. 103 which is consequential on the amendment to subsection (3) of Clause 4 that...

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I am most grateful for that response. In the light of the noble Baroness's reassurances and the further guidance that will be issued before the Bill completes its passage through this House, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

European Labour Markets (14 Jan 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: rose to call attention to the flexibility of European labour markets in the light of the report of the European Union Select Committee Working in Europe: Access for all (Session 2001–02, 15th Report, HL 88); and to move for Papers. My Lords, I commend to the House the report by the Select Committee on the European Union on European labour markets. It is rather unfortunate that it has taken...
