When Harriet visited Bradford Council Labour group leader, Ian Greenwood, she criticised the decision made by the Council's ruling Conservative group to axe 17 street wardens who patrol in Bradford and Keighley centres.
Harriet said street wardens had proved their worth in many areas of the country.
"You could say they act as a buffer between the community, traders and police. They know everybody, people turn to them to help sort out any problems and people in areas outside of the city centre are concerned they will lose their police officers to cover the wardens' patch. For me it's a no-brainer."
Following Harriet's visit, the ruling Conservative group have decided to suspend their decision to cease the service while a comprehensive review is carried out. This means that funding is now secure until March 31, 2008.
