Police: Surrey — Question (12 Jan 2009)

Northern Ireland: Consultative Group on the Past — Question (5 Feb 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I understand that the Historical Enquiries Team and the powers of the ombudsman to investigate the past will be transferred to the legacy commission. Will the noble Baroness tell us whether this commission will be funded properly for that job?

Railways: East Coast Main Line — Question (9 Feb 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I declare an interest as a weekly commuter on the east coast main line. I heard what the Minister said about the speed of the trains. Indeed, it is very good. However, the quality of service is also important. If the Minister did not specify in the contract that the quality of the service, on first class, certainly, was part of the franchise, that is a real defect. The service has...

Iraq: Ashraf City — Question (2 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the Government of the United States about the safety of Iranian residents at Camp Ashraf in Iraq to prevent them being forcibly removed.

Iraq: Ashraf City — Question (2 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister for that response. However, is he aware that the Iranian national security adviser has recently stated: "Over 3,000 inhabitants of Camp Ashraf have to leave Iraq and the camp will be part of history within two months", even though all the residents in Camp Ashraf are considered under the Fourth Geneva Convention as protected persons? Who will...

Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2009: Motion to Approve (4 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I too, thank the Lord President for introducing the statutory instrument. It appears to be a very sensible provision to close existing loopholes within the current compensation scheme and we are content to support its provisions.

Criminal Damage (Compensation) (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Order 2009: Motion to Approve (4 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I, too, thank the Lord President for introducing the order. Community halls are vital in strengthening and maintaining the social infrastructure in the communities they serve, so any criminal damage caused to them puts huge financial pressure on the communities that have to repair them. This order is very much welcomed by these Benches. The Lord President spoke about the concern...

Northern Ireland Bill: Second Reading (9 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, each and every Member of this House has made stark reference to the appalling events of Saturday night at Massereene barracks in Antrim. The people of Northern Ireland had hoped that murders such as these were a thing of the past. It is shocking that the perpetrators feel that they can derail the peace process by killing and maiming innocent people. We call on anyone who has any...

Northern Ireland Bill: Committee (11 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I associate these Benches with the expression of revulsion and horror at the murder of PC Stephen Carroll. I have been advised today by the Police Federation of Northern Ireland that it is looking after the family of Stephen Carroll. I have expressed all our heartfelt sympathy to them. I have a brief comment on Amendment 1. We agree that there could be difficulties if the Lord Chief Justice...

Northern Ireland Bill: Committee (11 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I will briefly speak to two of the amendments tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Maginnis of Drumglass. On Amendment 1C, we feel that there is nothing in legislation to provide that four parties must always be in the Executive. The d'Hondt formula just needs to be applied until all ministerial posts are filled. If one or two parties have a sufficiently large number of Members, that could result...

Northern Ireland Bill: Committee (11 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I will speak to Amendments 6 and 10 in this group. Amendment 6 is another modest amendment. It was moved in the other place and it is an attempt to limit the possibility of vexatious Motions being tabled by Members of the Assembly. It gives the Assembly the ability to set out in Standing Orders a limit on the number of times a Motion to remove a Minister can be made during a specific period...

Northern Ireland Bill: Committee (11 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: We are happy to support the principles behind this amendment, which we think will allow the Committee to feel reassured on this point.

Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [HL]: Report (First Day) (17 Mar 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, if Amendment 23 is agreed to, I cannot call Amendment 24 by reason of pre-emption. Amendment 23 Moved by Baroness Andrews 23: Clause 5, page 5, line 24, leave out from second "council" to end of line 27 and insert "under paragraph (za)" Amendment 23 agreed. Amendments 25 and 26 not moved. Amendment 27 Moved by Lord Tope 27: After Clause 7, insert the following new Clause—...

Access to Parliament — Private Notice Question (12 May 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, while not allowing the protesters to take over to the extent that they did yesterday, will the Minister make clear that this particular failure by the police will not be used to renege on the promise to repeal unreasonable restrictions on Parliament Square protesters?

Policing and Crime Bill: Second Reading (3 Jun 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Norwich, who always manages to hit the nail on the head about what is and is not good legislation. This is the 20th Bill involving policing on which I have had the pleasure of speaking in your Lordships' House in the 10 years that I have been here. It seems that every time we have a new Queen's Speech, we have...

Policing and Crime Bill: Committee (1st Day) (22 Jun 2009)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: I declare an interest at the start as a former chair of the North Yorkshire Police Authority and as a former deputy chair and now vice-president of the Association of Police Authorities, as well as having other police authority roles over a 25-year period. Clause 1 inserts into the Police Act 1996 a requirement for police authorities, when discharging any of their functions, to have regard to...
