Is this part of what you are looking for? I used Google scholar and searched the names you gave and dates and then just got the Harvard reference provided for each under cite (found next to the star below the name of the text and looks like quotation marks- click this). You can also look which other papers have cited this text to see how they did it. If you type in the exact title, it should give you the Harvard referencing version. I have used this in some of my research work( different field of work- research into Intellectual disabilities), looking up the studies and was told by the professor I work for to use this feature on scholar.

Macpherson, C., 1999. The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry: report of an inquiry. stationary office.

Or

Inquiry, M., 1999. The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry, Report of an Inquiry by Sir William Macpherson of Cluny. London: Stationery Office, Parliamentary papers, Cm, 4262, pp.3-10.

And

Blofeld, S.J., 2004. Report into Inquiry into the Death of Michael Bennett. London: Department of.

I think it would be (Blofeld, 2004) or (MacPherson, 1999) as they were both the only 'author' (given in the reference) and also saw (Blofeld, 2004) cited in text in another paper while looking this up. Might still be a good idea to double check though to be sure though. Maybe look through other papers which have cited this to see how they might have done so.

I hope this helps!

It’s a style of referencing sources when writing academic work. I’d assume Harvard were the ones to invent this particular style (Leafez, 2019).

As far as I know, it is one of the most commonly used referencing styles and no you don't have to be in Harvard to use it. I first used it in my Advanced higher science assignments while at school.
