Counter-Terrorism Bill (9 Oct 2008)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I am grateful to the noble Lord for his care in how he dealt with the amendment and for what he has put on record. That will go a long way in countering some of the concerns expressed. To have responses on record is a valuable way of ensuring that people understand the issues that we are dealing with. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Counter-Terrorism Bill (9 Oct 2008)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: moved Amendment No. 25: Clause 19, page 15, line 30, at end insert— "( ) Nothing in this section shall require a person to disclose information to any of the intelligence services for any purpose."

Counter-Terrorism Bill (9 Oct 2008)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: This is simply a probing amendment to allow the Minister to reassure us that disclosure is entirely permissive and that there is no possibility that the clause may be used in a more aggressive manner to seek information which results in the person from whom the information is being sought feeling that it is not being extracted in a permissive manner. I beg to move.

Counter-Terrorism Bill (9 Oct 2008)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: Once again, I am very grateful to the Minister. It is important to have that in Hansard to clarify the situation. I thank him very much and beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Counter-Terrorism Bill (9 Oct 2008)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I want to put on record, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Lester of Herne Hill who is unable to be in his place, the fact that we on these Benches very much support these amendments.

Queen's Speech — Debate (4th Day) (9 Dec 2008)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, as the former chair of a police authority and a former councillor, and as a present vice-president of the Association of Police Authorities, I declare my interest in this debate. I will make my remarks primarily about policing and the proposals in the gracious Speech that touch on the changes indicated in the forthcoming policing and crime Bill. We do not know when this Bill will be...

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.

Neighbourhood Watch (3 Feb 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I thank the Minister most warmly for that promise. I wonder whether she is aware of the new management structure and that two large companies have both offered £50,000 each and another £10,000 for an annual income for national neighbourhood watch. I am sure that with the Minister's promise, national neighbourhood watch will continue to flourish and bring in all the disparate small...

Northern Ireland Arms Decommissioning Act 1997 (Amnesty Period) Order 2005 (9 Feb 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I too thank the Lord President for bringing this order, which of course these Benches will support. In the euphoria following the Good Friday agreement, there was an expectation that decommissioning could occur by 2002—the latest date set down in the 1997 Act. However, as we have heard, it took almost that long to achieve the beginning of decommissioning. Therefore, it will take...

Northern Ireland (22 Feb 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, my question will, rather predictably, be on policing. In replying to a question about reviewing the Northern Ireland Organised Crime Taskforce, the noble Baroness said that she would look at one of the agencies of PSNI. There are other officers who will be involved in the investigation, and parts of Northern Ireland have very severe problems of criminality. In order to ensure that...

Immigration and Asylum (23 Feb 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I too thank the noble Lord, Lord Waddington, for initiating the debate—if only it helps to lay to rest the myths and more extreme ideas that have been brought forward. In declaring my interest, I must advise your Lordships that for four happy years I chaired the European Union Committee's Sub-Committee F, which dealt of course with these very issues. Indeed, some of your Lordships...

District Policing Partnerships (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (2 Mar 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Baroness for bringing forward the order. I associate these Benches with the remarks made about DPP members and their bravery in the very difficult times in the past. We hope that in the future they will continue to flourish. We welcome the order; its provisions are very sensible and right. I had to turn to the Explanatory Notes to gain an understanding of why...

Special Educational Needs and Disability (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (2 Mar 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Farrington of Ribbleton, urged us to look at striking a balance and getting it right. I believe that these proposals go some way towards that, but of course each situation is different. The implementation needs to be carefully monitored. It obviously depends on the individual child's specific and special educational needs. Let us hope that this legislation...

Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill (14 Mar 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, there is much to support in the Bill, although I cannot help feeling that it would have been preferable to restrict it to setting up the Serious Organised Crime Agency rather than tagging on a whole multitude of other measures. I shall today specifically exclude Part 4 of the Bill, which deals with public orders and conduct in public places. My noble friend Lord Lester of Herne Hill...

Nottinghamshire Police (16 Mar 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, does the Minister not agree that, proportionately, there has been much more gun crime in Nottinghamshire for the chief constable to deal with than there has been, say, in Greater Manchester, and that it therefore needs further money to enable it to address such very serious organised crime?

"Transport and Works Act 1992 (c. 42) (5 Apr 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: These Benches oppose Clauses 116 and 117 stand part of the Bill for the following reasons. Notwithstanding the explanatory letter from the Minister to a number of Peers who also spoke at Second Reading, her explanation that she intends to continue with the pilot schemes in no way helps to make the suggestion more palatable to a great number of people. In a letter to the Home Secretary, dated...

"Transport and Works Act 1992 (c. 42) (5 Apr 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I thank the Minister for her very full account of what she believes custody sergeants do. I set out very clearly what I believe they do, and the Police Federation, the Police Superintendents' Association and a whole range of other very senior policing people also feel that way. The Minister will not be surprised to learn that I am deeply dissatisfied with her response.

Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill (6 Apr 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: moved Amendment No. 15: Leave out Clause 120

Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill (6 Apr 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, yesterday, I spoke at length about custody sergeants and the need for them to retain that substantive rank in custody suites. I return to this because the answers given by the Government were wholly unsatisfactory. None of the real concerns expressed in stringent terms by the police was addressed. I was deeply disappointed to hear that the Conservatives in another place have decided...
