Merchant Shipping and Fishing Vessels (Port Waste Reception Facilities) Regulations 2003 (4 Jul 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I rise simply to say that noble Lords on the Liberal Democrat Benches agree with the regulations.

Criminal Justice Bill (7 Jul 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: A short debate took place on Clauses 7 and 8 last week dealing with the taking of fingerprints and DNA samples without consent when someone has been arrested for an offence, even if subsequently they are not charged. I do not seek to reopen that debate, but it is interesting to read Hansard at those points and see how your Lordships stressed the careful balance which the present Section 61 of...

Budget (No. 2) (Northern Ireland) Order 2003 (11 Jul 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, we on these Benches also welcome the order. I should like to make a few comments and ask the noble and learned Lord the Leader of the House a few questions. The significant amounts of money being sought must lead to clear improvements in services for the people of Northern Ireland. Like the noble and learned Lord the Leader of the House and the noble Lord, Lord Glentoran, I am also...

Northern Ireland Act 2000 (Modification) (No. 2) Order 2003 (15 Sep 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, we too thank the noble and learned Lord the Leader of the House for the consideration he has always shown in matters concerned with Northern Ireland. However, for the second time we find ourselves having to renew this order. It is most unfortunate that we have to do so. It is our fervent hope and expectation that this will be the last time we have to renew it. The order runs to 14th...

Partnerships etc. (Removal of Twenty Member Limit) (Northern Ireland) Order 2003 (15 Sep 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, the noble and learned Lord has amply outlined the reasons why the order has been deemed necessary. It is right that we should encourage enterprise and remove restrictive barriers to business in Northern Ireland—barriers that have been in place, as the noble and learned Lord has very helpfully told us, since the 18th and 19th centuries in order to restrict the extent to which...

Criminal Justice Bill (29 Oct 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: moved Amendment No. 11A: Page 6, line 7, leave out from "him)," to end and insert "for the word "shall" there is substituted "may""

Criminal Justice Bill (29 Oct 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, in moving Amendment No. 11A, I shall speak also to Amendments Nos. 11B and 11C. I am disappointed that the Government have not seen fit to address the concerns we expressed in Committee about this part of the Bill. These amendments are therefore by way of a compromise and I urge the Minister to support them. I shall speak first to Amendments Nos. 11A and 11C. Section 54 of PACE...

Criminal Justice Bill (29 Oct 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I am very grateful to the Minister. I heard what she said about guidance and "any reasonable request". We have been along this road before. I very much look forward to seeing what she brings forward at Third Reading. In the mean time, I shall not press the matter to a vote and beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Criminal Justice Bill (29 Oct 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: moved Amendment No. 12: Page 6, line 17, after "offence" insert "and an officer of at least the rank of inspector authorises them to be taken"

Criminal Justice Bill (29 Oct 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, in moving Amendment No. 12, I shall speak also to Amendments Nos. 13 and 14. The amendments cover Clauses 8 and 9 and are grouped together. Amendment No. 12 seeks to insert a requirement that an officer of at least the rank of inspector authorises the taking of fingerprints without the consent of the detainee. Taking fingerprints without consent can still be construed as interfering...

Criminal Justice Bill (29 Oct 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her very full reply. I shall read carefully her comments in Hansard. We are most concerned about the routine exercise of power. I shall look carefully to see whether we should bring these issues back at Third Reading. Meanwhile, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Criminal Justice Bill (5 Nov 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I could not agree less with the views just expressed by the noble Lord, Lord Waddington. With regard to the amendments in my name and that of my noble friend Lord Dholakia, I shall talk particularly about Northern Ireland, in order to ensure that that subject is placed on the record. I speak first to Amendment No. 201. I was delighted to hear the Secretary of State announce that the...

Criminal Justice Bill (17 Nov 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, as the Minister predicted, I rise to speak to Amendment No. 2. I thank her very warmly for her letter of explanation and for the amendments that she has accepted. She will, of course, understand that I am still rather disappointed that she has not been able to accept Amendment No. 11B, which sought to impose the absolute requirement, because she feels that, "it may encourage...

Science and Technology (3 Dec 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I would like to speak about some of the justice and home affairs aspects of the draft constitutional treaty. These have not attracted as much attention as other elements of the treaty, but, as the Select Committee's report on the treaty points out, some of its most significant changes relate to the development of the European Union as an area of freedom, security and justice. For...

Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill [HL] (16 Dec 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, a number of views have been expressed about improvements to the criminal justice system in Northern Ireland. As my noble friend Lord Smith of Clifton said at the outset, we broadly welcome the measures. It is not a large Bill, but its content is important for the people of Northern Ireland to be able to see clearly how their judicial system is working. My noble friend Lord Smith...

Financial Statement and Budget Report (16 Dec 2003)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: Good.

European Border Guard (EUC Report) (8 Jan 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: rose to ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the report from the Select Committee on the European Union, Proposals for a European Border Guard (29th Report, Session 2002–03, HL Paper 133), what legal controls and parliamentary oversight they believe should apply to new European Union structures for co-ordinating border management and to joint operations between the member states. My...

Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill [HL] (15 Jan 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: moved Amendment No. 30: Page 2, line 41, leave out from beginning to end of line 3 on page 3 and insert— "(3) The Prime Minister shall make recommendations to Her Majesty concerning all appointments under subsection (1) or (2), based on recommendations made by the First and Deputy First Minister acting jointly, in such forms as the Prime Minister may specify."

Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill [HL] (15 Jan 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: With regard to the appointment of the Lord Chief Justice and Lords Justices of Appeal, we believe that the published Bill has failed to meet the expectation raised in the updated implementation plan published by the Northern Ireland Office that the Prime Minister will appoint persons to these positions, "based on the recommendations of the First and Deputy First Minister". Instead the Bill...

Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill [HL] (15 Jan 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I take the point that has been made. I reiterate that the measure concerns the recommendations of the First and Deputy First Ministers, but the Bill has diminished their role. I shall consider very carefully what the Minister said. We may return to the matter on Report. In the mean time, I shall reflect on what the Minister said.
