Stories involving Harriet Harman

Labour targets women with separate manifesto

Labour will publish a separate “manifesto for women” in a bid to target the nine million women who did not vote at the last election.

Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman said women felt alienated from politics and men did not understand their priorities.

“It is the women who did not vote last time who hold the balance of power. They will decide who becomes prime minister,” she said.

The manifesto is expected to include promises on equal pay, childcare and maternity leave


Harman to attack 'duplicitous' Lib Dems

Harriet Harman will today accuse the Lib Dems of hypocrisy by campaigning at a local level against the cuts they have introduced nationally. Labour's deputy leader will speak in Sheffield, home constituency of Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg. She told the Independent: "They are trying to hoodwink voters and should be held accountable. They're not an alternative to the Tories - they are all in it together."


Harman urges newspaper regulation

Harriet Harman has urged newspaper owners to agree on a common system of redress and regulation to put before the Leveson Inquiry. The Shadow Culture and Media Secretary said that the new system should be independent, apply to all newspapers and be citizen-centric.

Harman: Labour was wrong on gambling

Harriet Harman has admitted the Labour Government was wrong to relax gambling laws that have brought high-stakes gambling machines to bookmakers in Britain. The Shadow Culture Secretary makes the comments in an interview for Channel 4’s Dispatches to be shown tomorrow evening. It comes as bookmakers William Hill and Ladbrokes have said that more than £12 billion was wagered on their machines in the first half of this year.


Harman hints at DCMS cut

Labour's deputy leader Harriet Harman has cited "well-sourced rumours in Westminster" to back her claims that the Government is considering closing down the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. The Institute for Economic Affairs estimates that closing DCMS could save around £1.6bn a year, meaning the Government could use the savings for tax cuts. However Downing Street sources have insisted that such a move is "not in the offing".


Equality chief praises Theresa May

The chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission has praised the work of Home Secretary Theresa May, saying that she "fights hard" for women's rights. Trevor Philips compared Ms May to Labour's Deputy Leader Harriet Harman, whom many call the "patron saint of equality". He said: “Equality is an issue that can transcend politics, and we should judge people not on their political label but what they are doing and what they deliver.”
