Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill (6 Apr 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for attempting to ameliorate some of the harm that has been done in this Bill. Sadly, her arguments do not persuade me one little bit. Custody sergeants were always going to be my cause célèbre. For instance, how is the noble Baroness going to ensure that national training standards for this very important role are going to be rolled out and used in...

Insolvency (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (26 May 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I, too, welcome the Minister to his post, but I shall reserve a little more to say about him when we debate Northern Ireland on 9 June. We look forward very much to a good working relationship and I am sure that we will move forward in that spirit. We also welcome the order and the consultation process that resulted in the change to Article 17(6) so that it defines a...

Company Directors Disqualification (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (26 May 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, we too support the order. Following consultation in Northern Ireland, no changes were proposed to the draft order. The change seems sensible. However, I just ask the Minister what other body or organisation could be specified as a regulator under the order, other than the OFT.

Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (26 May 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, we too support the order in that it is a general tidying-up exercise, particularly given the helpful Explanatory Notes. It brings the law in Northern Ireland into line with that which has existed in England and Wales since 1989. It has certainly taken its time to do so. I was particularly interested in paragraph 8 of the Explanatory Notes. It talks of how in Northern Ireland savings...

Drainage (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (26 May 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, we on these Benches also welcome the order. Perhaps I may ask the Minister a couple of questions. Can he give an indication of the kinds of functions for which the department has it in mind to charge? He mentioned infrastructure works; can he give me a little more detail about that? To whom would such charges be made? Otherwise, we support the order.

Minister for Women (13 Jun 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, will the Government draw up a strategy on female poverty as advocated by the Fawcett Society? This could be similar to the one set up to look at child poverty.

Firearms (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (14 Jun 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, these Benches support this order.

Local Government (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (14 Jun 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, it would have been helpful had the Minister been able to give us further information about that. We support this order, but I have a question on Article 29. I would be grateful if the Minister could help, or write to me. This article gives district councils powers to make emergency planning arrangements with other bodies or persons to prevent or to mitigate the effects of any...

EU: The Hague Programme — Justice and Home Affairs (EUC Report) (20 Jun 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow my former colleague and successor, the noble Lord, Lord Wright of Richmond. I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak in this debate on the subject of Eurojust and the report produced by the Select Committee while I was chairman of Sub-Committee F. It is a pity that it has not proved possible to arrange an earlier debate, but at least we have...

EU: Judicial Co-operation (EUC Report) (20 Jun 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I beg to move the Motion standing in my name on the Order Paper. Moved, That this House takes note of the Report of the European Union Committee on Judicial Co-operation in the EU: the role of Eurojust (23rd Report, Session 2003–04, HL Paper 138).—(Baroness Harris of Richmond.)

London: Terrorist Attacks (11 Jul 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, is the noble Baroness the Leader of the House able to tell us at this stage how many other countries, police forces or security forces are helping us with the inquiries that are ongoing?

NHS Dentistry (13 Oct 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I understand that the draft contract will require contractors to provide care and treatment to any patient. Does the Minister agree that, perversely, that might mean that NHS dentists will be unable to prioritise care to those who need it most, such as children, without risking a challenge of discrimination?

Northern Ireland (13 Oct 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I never had the pleasure of meeting Mo Mowlam but, like other colleagues in the House, and, following my noble friend Lord Smith of Clifton, I send my heartfelt sympathy to her family. She was an extraordinary person, albeit I saw that only from afar. However, I remember Gerry Fitt extremely well. Indeed, during my very first debate on Northern Ireland, when I tried to persuade the...

Rules of the Supreme Court (Northern Ireland) (Amendment No. 4) 2005 (18 Oct 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister for introducing the Rules of the Supreme Court (Northern Ireland). But once again we are in the position of having to retrospectively agree to new rules because there was not time to obtain the approval of both Houses before the Recess. The explanation, of course, is that there were post-election difficulties establishing the new membership of the...

Legal Aid (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (5 Dec 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I was delighted to hear the Minister say that the Lord Chancellor will consider the Omagh case. I understand that it is not feasible to refer to it at the moment, but I hope that he will listen very carefully to what the people of Omagh have to say about it. I am grateful to the Minister for bringing this order to the House. I assure him that we on these Benches fully support it....

NHS Dentistry (8 Dec 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper. In so doing, I declare my interest as a member of the court of the University of York. The Question was as follows: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to improve the level of National Health Service dental provision in north and east Yorkshire.

NHS Dentistry (8 Dec 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his encouraging Answer. However, given the poorer than average dental health among children in the Yorkshire and Humber region and the gap in provision of NHS dentists between the north and south, does he not agree that, to correct the imbalance and address the further dental needs of the area, it is important that a new dental school is established...

Civil Partnership Act 2004 (International Immunities and Privileges, Companies and Adoption) Order 2005 (12 Dec 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I, too, thank the Minister for bringing forward the order and assure him that these Benches are delighted to accept it.

Safety of Sports Grounds (Northern Ireland) Order 2005 (14 Dec 2005)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I thank the Minister for bringing this order to the House. From these Benches we welcome it, although it comes very late to Northern Ireland. Safety is an incredibly important issue and we are very pleased that the Government are bringing Northern Ireland's sports grounds into the safety certification scheme which exists here. I well remember that legislation being formulated in...
