Petition - Warwick Road, Carlisle: School Funding: North Northumberland (11 Sep 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank you, Mr Speaker, and especially so this evening as we find ourselves the last ones standing after a lengthy evening of voting on the important European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. Northumberland voted to leave the EU, as I did, and as we progress the people’s call, I want to make sure that the children currently coming through the schools in my constituency, and those who will...

Petition - Warwick Road, Carlisle: School Funding: North Northumberland (11 Sep 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Indeed, we will look into that, and perhaps my hon. Friend will help us make progress. I hope that the Minister will commit to driving forward—excuse the pun—this rural transport hub project by seeking grant funding to help pump-prime it. We can be so much smarter with the money we have if we do not have to spend it on a double-decker, one-size-fits-all offer. The current...

Petition - Warwick Road, Carlisle: School Funding: North Northumberland (11 Sep 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: That is exactly the sort of vision that we hope to have in Northumberland. Given the enormous expanse of territory, the challenge for our children is the need to spend hours travelling in order to achieve the flexibility and the breadth of education to which those living in a city, or even in a less sparsely populated county, might have easier access. If children are indeed to fulfil their...

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I commend my hon. Friend for the extraordinary work he has done to ensure that this commemoration period is given as wide a reach as it can be. Last year, he encouraged me to look at the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers—the young men from my constituency who went out to fight in the first world war. Those boys and young men were the same age as my son is now, which brings this home very...

Export Licensing: High Court Judgment (10 Jul 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Given that the High Court has today found that the Government have been meticulous in their export licensing processes, will the Secretary of State inform the House how much this court case is going to cost the taxpayer in legal fees?

Business of the House (22 Jun 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Will the Leader of the House consider my request for a debate in Government time in the next few weeks on the Royal Navy’s aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, and our continued NATO commitment as we return to a carrier strike capability?

Grenfell Tower (22 Jun 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Will my right hon. Friend confirm whether the firefighters who attended this harrowing scene, and their families, will get the psychological support that they may well need in the months and years ahead? Will she commit to report back to the House on how that will be set up for them?

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North Durham (Mr Jones), one of my colleagues from the north-east for whom I have the greatest respect. He was more than helpful in the last Parliament in helping me to find my feet. It is an honour to be invited to speak in this great Chamber on the first day of our new Parliament. I would like first to put on record my thanks and admiration to...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank my right hon. Friend for his intervention. We are at one on that. We can and perhaps should be doing much more to ensure that the Treasury can support the Ministry of Defence in the work it has to do. If, in this Year of the Navy, we are to ensure that we can afford to build the ships we need to protect our nation’s interests in conflict and in peace, we must be honest about...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. We need to look at this in the round. I hope that the shipbuilding strategy that we are expecting to come out from the Department very shortly will set forward that vision. We need to make sure that we here in Parliament are supporting the Department in ensuring that it can get the funding it needs—long-term, stable funding for that...

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is an honour to speak on the last day of Westminster Hall in this Parliament. I congratulate the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) on securing this debate. She was talking about the challenges of school funding, but it was disappointing not to hear about some of the impressive improvements in educational outputs across the north-east over the past few years....

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: As the hon. Lady knows, I support the USO and campaigned very hard to ensure that we got it into the Digital Economy Bill. I speak as someone for whom 1 megabit is still a very good day in my house. It is still a challenge for many of my constituents whose children need to do their homework online, but we are getting there. We have kicked the system into a more proactive premise, but I agree...

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: The question is how the levy is used. For some of my larger schools the apprenticeship levy is a reasonable fee to pay because they will have the opportunity to benefit from apprentices and will increase their cohort of staff. We need to be a little more flexible and encourage councils to think more constructively in how they deal with the levy.

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: One challenge that I found as a new MP is that, even if a policy is a good one, getting the delivery right on the ground is another thing. A simple phrasing of words need not negate the opportunity to apply what I would call common-sense thinking. If a school is happy to pay into the levy pot but happens to have an apprentice, it does not mean it should be excluded from the programme. I hope...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (20 Apr 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Further to the question of my hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh), will the Minister please give my constituents across north Northumberland the reassurance they need that, should the European Commission choose not to follow the EFSA recommendation and decide to ban the use of glyphosate anyway, the UK Government will ensure its continued use remains possible in the UK...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: Cancer Drugs: Funding (20 Apr 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I would like to ask the Second Church Estates Commissioner, my right hon. Friend the Member for Meriden (Dame Caroline Spelman) what the Church of England is doing to help to protect churches throughout Northumberland from the theft of metal from their roofs.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Number of Vocations (20 Apr 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Does my right hon. Friend believe that the number of vocations would be improved if the Church of England did more to protect its churches in Northumberland from metal theft, which leaves young ordinands with a lot of logistics to deal with when they should be focusing on their parishioners?

Future Accommodation Model — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Apr 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is an honour to follow the hon. Members who have spoken. In particular, I thank the hon. Member for Manchester, Withington (Jeff Smith) for bringing the debate to the House. As colleagues know, this issue is very close to my heart. It has become, unwittingly, something of a passion for me, because military families have regarded me as the person to come to with their issues. It is lovely...

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Mar 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: The Prime Minister will be aware that the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness is calling us all to action to highlight and tackle loneliness. In Northumberland, Forward Assist, a small charity of which I am a patron, is taking up this challenge, working with female military veterans who are suffering from severe isolation issues. Will the Prime Minister meet me and some of those extraordinary...

Class 4 National Insurance Contributions (15 Mar 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank the Chancellor for listening to the voices of colleagues and deciding to reverse the proposals. The genuinely self-employed carry real financial risk by working for themselves. I know that a Conservative Government really want a tax system that will support risk-takers and growth-creators, so will the Chancellor commit to working over the coming months with colleagues who believe it...
