Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Mary Glindon: Since the life-changing spinal muscular atrophy treatment Spinraza was rejected by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in its first guidance last month, families affected, including that of young Sam Mckie in North Tyneside, have been left heartbroken. Will the Prime Minister meet me and Muscular Dystrophy UK to discuss the urgent need to make progress on the managed access...

HMP Birmingham (4 Sep 2018)

Mary Glindon: Birmingham is one of the four most violent prisons in England and Wales, and all those prisons are privately operated. Does the Minister agree that, logically, this level of violence is a consequence of running prisons for profit where costs are cut to the bone to maximise returns for shareholders?

Standards: Summer Adjournment (24 Jul 2018)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow North East (Mr Sweeney), who has definitely made his mark with the excellent things he is already doing in the House. I congratulate the two new Members who have made their maiden speeches; I am sure that they will be excellent advocates for their constituents. As a member of the associate and retired members branch of the...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Mary Glindon: My hon. Friend is making a really heartfelt speech. I remember the Save our Swans campaign, and as she has touched on, this was not just about unemployment. Those men who were able to get jobs had to go across the world and leave their families, and another way of decimating the community was removing people.

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Mary Glindon: The GMB commissioned a Survation survey that found that 74% of people want these ships to be built in this country. Do not public opinion and the pride that people would feel if the ships were built here matter as much as value for money?

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Glindon: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that this is not only about Germany and further abroad? Under the Scotland Act 2016, Scotland is able to go ahead with its air departure tax proposal, which is a reduction of 50%, and that will affect the north-east, with a further bad effect on Northern Ireland in addition to the Dublin effect.

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Glindon: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate. As he has said, the issue affects other parts of the United Kingdom. A Fair Tax on Flying estimates that, since the measure was introduced, the residents of North Tyneside have paid more than £38 million in APD. Is that fair or commensurate with the economic problems that we face in the north-east when we need to increase our...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Glindon: According to the Public and Commercial Services Union, there are almost 1,200 staff at the Ministry of Justice on poverty pay. Will the Minister support the union’s 5% pay claim for all public sector workers?

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: Would the hon. Gentleman say that there is an exception in which it might always be important to install safe standing, because away supporters tend to stand? At Newcastle United the away supporters are right up in the gods, and stand in a dangerous position. Might that be an exception for every ground?

Health and Social Care: Highly Specialised Technologies Evaluations (19 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: What recent discussions his Department has had with representatives of NICE on increasing the capacity of the highly specialised technologies evaluation process.

Health and Social Care: Highly Specialised Technologies Evaluations (19 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: There is a risk that new treatments for life-limiting conditions, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy, might not be approved by NICE, so will the Minister meet me and Muscular Dystrophy UK to discuss ways to facilitate access to treatments, as highlighted by the charity’s FastTrack campaign?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (11 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: During a recent visit to Iraq, a delegation from the all-party group on Kurdistan met British soldiers who have trained thousands of Peshmerga, helping the brave allies whose sacrifice and resistance to ISIS enhances our safety, and whose rights in a federal Iraq need international protection. Will the Minister confirm that the Department will continue that vital mentoring mission?

Public Sector Pay Policy — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: I am intervening as a member of the associate and retired members branch of PCS and as part of the parliamentary group. Further to what the hon. Gentleman said in response to the last intervention, does he think it is ludicrous that there will be civil servants and public sector workers in receipt of universal credit who will be under scrutiny by the Department for Work and Pensions to...

Business of the House (24 May 2018)

Mary Glindon: New research by the York Health Economics Consortium has found that scrapping prescription charges for people with Parkinson’s and inflammatory bowel disease will save the NHS more than £20 million a year. Can the Leader of the House please ask Health Ministers to meet representatives of the Prescription Charges Coalition to discuss this important information?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 May 2018)

Mary Glindon: In North Tyneside and across the UK, homebuyers are being sold new houses that have serious defects by developers such as Bellway and Persimmon with no means of sufficient redress. Following the recent Government consultation, will the Prime Minister put her weight behind establishing a new homes ombudsman to give those consumers the proper redress that they urgently need?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (17 Apr 2018)

Mary Glindon: What message will the Chancellor be sending to the thousands of public and civil servants who will be at the march organised by the TUC on 12 May asking for a fully funded, above-inflation pay rise?

Easter Adjournment (29 Mar 2018)

Mary Glindon: It is my honour to be a co-chair of the drug, alcohol and justice parliamentary group, which is just one of the many parliamentary groups founded and facilitated by Simeon Andrews, who died suddenly last month. I was among a number of Members from both Houses who attended his funeral on Monday, and judging by the number of Members from every party who signed the early-day motion in his...

International Trade: Topical Questions (29 Mar 2018)

Mary Glindon: The north-east is a net gainer from the EU, and 60% of our exports are to EU countries, but the region is set to be worst off after Brexit. How will the Department make sure we do not lose out as part of the Government’s global north vision?

Backbench Business: Freedom of Religion or Belief — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (1 Mar 2018)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. It is quite difficult to follow the hon. Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart). He has provoked a lot of questions on why we think religious freedom is important and why we need to move forward with it and for the Government to do more to support oppressed people. I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Supported Housing (5 Feb 2018)

Mary Glindon: The Government have promised that all short-term provision currently funded by the welfare system will continue to be funded at the same level by local authorities until 2020, but will the Minister confirm that there will be no cut in funding after that?
