Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (11 Sep 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Next year, we move into a post-Brexit economy with new global trading opportunities for UK economic growth. Will the Chancellor update the House on his commitment to investing further in the Royal Navy, which is a vital tool for maintaining safe seas and oceans, so that trade coming out of north-east and other ports can be sustained and can underwrite economic growth?

Idlib (10 Sep 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank the Minister for his kind words and for reiterating the need to ensure that our military personnel are well protected from the disinformation that is being put out across the world. What can be done to stop the reported rise in attacks on medical facilities? Is the international community able to collect evidence so that we can hold to account these barbarians who are killing children...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I welcome the Secretary of State to his place. I encourage him to visit the most rural part of England, up in Northumberland, to see for himself the challenges to healthcare provision due to the lack of a real rural financial formula. Will he update my constituents and the Save Rothbury Hospital campaign on how the review for that community hospital is going? That sort of low-level care is...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Moorland: Fire Prevention (11 Jul 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps the Government is taking to ensure the responsible management of heather moorland to minimise the risk of uncontrollable wild fires; and if he will make it his policy to include controlled burning in accordance with the Heather and Grass Burning Code as part of that management.

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) (No. 2) Bill: Meaning of “ivory” (4 Jul 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: The Minister mentioned museums. On Second Reading, I raised the question of Northumbrian pipes made since 1975 using CITES-approved ivory. I understand that in Committee, despite these pipes’ unique and beautiful nature, it proved impossible to give a specific exemption for pipes made since 1975, but will the Minister meet me to discuss how we might find a way to use the local community...

Sustainable Fisheries (4 Jul 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: My right hon. Friend should know that the fishermen just south of the Scottish border, along the north-east coast, are really pleased to see the progress that has been made with this White Paper, but the issue continues to be how we will tackle the choke species issue, because that is something that continues to concern them.

Business of the House (7 Jun 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Will the Leader of the House find Government time for a debate on the challenge involved in meeting the universal service obligation for rural broadband? In communities throughout north Northumberland, including mine, the challenge of putting the infrastructure in place in time for the universal service obligation to be met is still enormous.

Supreme Court Ruling: Abortion in Northern Ireland (7 Jun 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: The women of Northern Ireland deserve a long-term solution and their human rights need to be respected, but with regard to the short term, will my right hon. Friend confirm that no women who have abortion procedures in England are being charged for them?

Offences Against the Person Act 1861: Ivory Bill (4 Jun 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I am delighted to be able to speak on this important Bill, following on from my hon. Friend the Member for North East Hampshire (Mr Jayawardena), and to continue to highlight just how Britain is taking the lead across the world in protecting the special and diverse wildlife across our planet. From oceans to the illegal wildlife trade, the Government are showing the environmental leadership...

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is an honour to follow my near neighbour, the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne Central (Chi Onwurah), who always speaks wisely on all things engineering and technical. I long to be as knowledgeable as she is. I wish to thank the Secretary of State for taking this difficult decision to bring the east coast main line back into public control while we find a long-term, sustainable...

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is not so much the rolling stock that I remember as not necessarily getting back for tea because the train just did not go—that used to cause my grandmother and I some disconcertion. The railway timetables were more an idea than a reality a lot of the time. That is a childhood memory, and the Labour party’s vision for train provision, which does not put the customer at the...

East Coast Main Line (16 May 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: For the residents of Berwick-upon-Tweed, the east coast main line is critical infrastructure, until the Secretary of State manages to dual the rest of the A1 all the way through. Can he confirm that there will be no disruption and that my constituents will be able to continue using what has always been an excellent train line?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 May 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: The 12 in-bed provision at Rothbury Community Hospital in my constituency was removed without adequate consultation back in September 2016. The Save Rothbury Hospital campaign and I have worked closely together to get transparency on that decision and return the in-bed provision for our vast and sparsely populated Coquet valley. Does the Prime Minister agree that the NHS should be investing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Basic Skills (14 May 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: This Wednesday is National Numeracy Day. Speaking as a mathematician—not a historian—I welcome the fantastic work that the Government are doing to increase critical basic maths participation for longer in our schools, especially for girls. Does the Minister agree that, as our all-party group on maths and numeracy report on early years highlighted last year, we need to invest more...

Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill: Parental bereavement leave and pay (11 May 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I commend those who have brought this Bill forward and those who have suffered personal loss. Among the friends of mine who have suffered such a loss, the line has always been, “It’s just wrong to have to bury a child; nature didn’t intend it that way.” Therefore, regardless of whether we are 80 years old and burying a child or 30 and burying a young infant, it is the...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Vulnerable Syrian Families (16 Apr 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: What progress the Government have made in placing vulnerable Syrian families in the UK.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Vulnerable Syrian Families (16 Apr 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Northumberland County Council is providing homes and resettlement family support for 28 Syrian adults and their 41 children, but we currently have no Syrian refugee children as we are short of foster carers to provide the necessary support. Does the Minister agree that we must encourage people who want to support those Syrian children to apply to be foster carers?

Autism (29 Mar 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Every time we have a debate on autism, we bring the issue forward, as the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman) pointed out. As someone who has family experience of this—my wonderful 18-year-old son, who has been through the mill, has Asperger’s—constituents are starting to contact me and come and talk to me. They are stepping out into the light and saying, “How...

Autism (29 Mar 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. I want to discuss waiting times for diagnosis, which are getting better. In the case of my son James, we could not get any kind of diagnosis within the NHS and had to go private. There is not yet the capacity within local areas to ensure that when there is something different with a child early on, there is somewhere to go. I contend the use of language by the...
