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

Baroness Harris of Richmond: No, indeed, we do not consider that that is the case. As I said, I shall reflect on what the Minister said. We may return to the matter at a later stage. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Harbours Bill [HL] (26 Jan 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: As well as I understand the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, my noble friend Lord Bradshaw regrets that he is unable to be in his place this evening, and he has asked me to deal with these few amendments. I am grateful to the noble Lord for explaining them so clearly. These Benches are happy with the general aim of the Bill. If that can be achieved, these Benches will be satisfied. We support the...

Agricultural Statistics (Northern Ireland) Order 2004 (16 Mar 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I too thank the Lord President for bringing the order before us. I echo the sentiments of the noble Lord, Lord Glentoran. It is an uncontroversial order. It would appear that extensive consultation has taken place, even to the extent of being posted on the web, on which I congratulate the Northern Ireland Office. There has been neither opposition nor amendment to the order....

Public Sector Local Food Procurement (19 Apr 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, will the Minister give the House examples of the Government, together with small and medium-sized enterprises, providing local food to hospitals' and schools' catering contractors? He says that that is being done, but perhaps he can give some examples.

Illegal Immigration (20 Apr 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: rose to ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the report from the Select Committee on the European Union, Fighting illegal immigration: should carriers carry the burden? (5th Report, HL Paper 29), whether the draft directive requiring air and sea carriers to transmit data on all their passengers to border control authorities in advance of travel will contribute effectively to curbing...

Neighbourhood Watch (27 May 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: asked Her Majesty's Government: How far they support the work of the National Neighbourhood Watch Association.

Neighbourhood Watch (27 May 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. Will he recognise that if the National Neighbourhood Watch Association is forced through lack of funding to close down in a few weeks' time, as seems likely, new neighbourhood watch schemes throughout the country will also close down as they do not wish to be merged with crime and disorder partnerships, preferring to maintain their independence...

Holiday Health Advice (21 Jun 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, does the Minister have any particular plans to raise the awareness of the specific dangers of skin cancer, taking note that Britain now has more skin cancer deaths than Australia?

Aurora Space Exploration Programme (30 Jun 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, notwithstanding what the Minister has said, is the follow-up to Beagle 2 at risk if we do not participate in the Aurora programme?

Highways (Obstruction by Body Corporate) Bill (16 Jul 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, when I was a county councillor, one of the most contentious items with which I had to deal was public rights of way and obstructions to them. This short Bill, as we have heard from the noble Lord, Lord Desai, closes the loophole in the law which unscrupulous people were able to exploit. The Bill enables obstructions of a highway to be removed if they have been placed by a body...

Extradition Act 2003 (Repeals) Order 2004 (16 Jul 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I, too, am grateful to the Minister for giving the examples, and we approve the draft orders.

Primary Medical Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2004 (Consequential Amendments) Order 2004 (26 Oct 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I too welcome the debate on this Northern Ireland order. We debated and passed the primary medical services order in January. As the noble Lord reminded us, it was uncontroversial and replicated measures being introduced in England and Wales by Part 4 of the Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Act 2003. The main provision of the order concerned new GP contracts,...

Gas (EUC Report) (5 Nov 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I too congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Woolmer, on securing this debate. I chair your Lordships' EU Sub-Committee F, which, as your Lordships know, deals with home affairs—so I hope that I will be forgiven for being an interloper in this debate from that rather particular angle. I have nevertheless read the excellent report of Sub-Committee B, as I am sure everyone who is...

Asylum (EUC Report) (12 Nov 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: rose to ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the report from the Select Committee on the European Union, Handling EU asylum claims: new approaches examined (11th report, HL Paper 74), what progress they have made in developing their proposals for regional protection areas and what view they take of the proposals of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees for the determination of...

Asylum (EUC Report) (12 Nov 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, they all have very legitimate reasons for not being present.

Asylum (EUC Report) (12 Nov 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister for giving way. Could he answer my specific question regarding the status of the Government's concerns around the German-Italian proposals? Precisely what do the Government feel about them?

European Police College (Immunities and Privileges) Order 2004 (9 Dec 2004)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I thank the Minister for bringing forward these three orders. We on these Benches welcome the orders dealing with Europol. As a plug, I refer your Lordships to the report of Sub-Committee F of 23 January 2003, Europol's Role in Fighting Crime, in which noble Lords will find every answer they might want about Europol. In our report, we said that Europol had a crucial role to perform...

Northern Ireland (31 Jan 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, the previous debate we had on Northern Ireland was held in April last year. Sadly we appear to be no closer to a solution to the restoration of the Assembly than we were then. My noble friend Lord Smith of Clifton has already reminded us that when he spoke in that debate, he accurately predicted: "Were there not to be a restoration, the pattern of Northern Ireland government would...

Neighbourhood Watch (3 Feb 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: asked Her Majesty's Government: In light of their proposal to decline an emergency grant to the National Neighbourhood Watch Association, what are their proposals for the continuance of that association.
