Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Emily Davison was a child of Northumberland and is buried in Morpeth, 6 miles from where I live. The town is in full bunting celebration this week to remember her and her bravery in stepping out, because she felt she had no other way to be heard, to try to reach the King on Epsom racecourse, where she lost her life. The challenge is that bravery is still required to stand as a female...

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Does the hon. Gentleman think it might be worth the Government considering, with Cabinet Office oversight, the creation of something like the covenant and veterans board? That would ensure that every Department had someone absolutely focused on the issue. Autism affects every Department and how we make reforms. Such a board could drive the agenda much more comprehensively through the system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Pupil Premium (29 Jan 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: In my constituency and across North Northumberland, the pupil premium and the service pupil premium for my military children are valuable additions to the school budget, as targeted interventions for those pupils. However, they are used more effectively in some schools than others. Will the Minister tell the House what plans the Department has to get Ofsted to look more closely at usage and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (25 Jan 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I am delighted that Doddington has been granted permission for 600,000 trees to be planted as part of our future environment plan. This is the largest planting scheme in England for a generation. Doddington is a great example of modern mixed forestry, but we need to ensure that this is not the end but the beginning. It is vital that the Forestry Commission supports those who want to plant...

Parole Board: Transparency and Victim Support: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Wentworth and Dearne (John Healey). I congratulate the hon. Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck), who has worked closely with Government to be able to bring this Bill to a really strong position of cross-party support so that we can all really stand up for what it does. I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bradford East (Imran Hussain). It is depressing to hear the Opposition laying into the NHS, which is an extraordinary group of real people working day in, day out to look after all our constituents when their health needs to be supported and mended. I commend all the staff across Northumberland’s healthcare family who work so hard not only...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (8 Jan 2018)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Will the Home Secretary tell the House what we are doing to support schools to identify when the dark web is accessed through apps that are free to download? This is how some of our most vulnerable children are accessing footage of ISIS beheadings and other disturbing imagery, which is fuelled by extremists who are trying to get new recruits.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband: Scotland (21 Dec 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: My constituency is on the southern side of the border, which is just a line on the map as far as they are concerned. North Northumberland is still struggling to get the broadband it needs so that my many small villages are not cut off. Will the Minister commit that, in 2018, we will see progress there?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (19 Dec 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: The Secretary of State will be aware of the decision by my Northumberland CCG to close in-patient beds at Rothbury Community Hospital last year. It was done on the premise of underuse, but local sources continue to indicate that it was due to a shortage of nurses at our excellent Northumbria A&E hospital. Following a passionate campaign led by Katie Scott and the Save Rothbury Community...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank my north-east colleague, the hon. Member for Easington (Grahame Morris), for securing this important debate. Yesterday, in Parliament, we celebrated the centenary of the formation of the Women’s Royal Naval Service. We celebrated and remembered the service and sacrifice of the women who gave so much to our nation. Today, we are yet again debating the plight of 3.8 million women...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank my hon. Friend. It is so important that we think of the individual women. There may be 3.8 million of them, but that means 3.8 million individual women across our nations. These women have worked hard all their lives and now face some incredibly difficult circumstances, and ill health can mean that they are struggling to survive on what they have. The lack of notice of changes to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Public Services: West Midlands (6 Dec 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: In 2010, the Conservative-led Government set out to reform the school curriculum in order to give our children the skills they need to succeed. Does the Prime Minister agree with me that yesterday’s reading standards results are a vindication of our reforms and our amazing teachers’ efforts, which will allow our children to forge a truly global Britain?

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: It is a pleasure and honour to speak in this debate, secured by the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron), because it is such an important issue. It is critical to make sure that those on the autistic spectrum are absolutely wrapped up in our mental health and medical services so that we no longer need even to raise this issue in the House. To that effect, the...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I thank the hon. Lady for her comments. Despite the cross-party efforts of all those for whom this is a passionate policy area—for 18 years I have cared for my son, who is now a young adult with autism—there are some people who are having a miserable time in the mental health system and are not yet benefiting from improved access to core therapies and services: men and women...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I absolutely agree. I work closely in my constituency with the families who are supporting their autistic children. Clearly, dealing with strangers, with the unfamiliar, and with group dynamics is possibly one of the most difficult things to ask an autistic young person—or indeed an older person—to take on. We have for too long neglected the research into mental health therapies...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: The hon. Lady is exactly right. I have experienced many times the meltdown of a small child in a supermarket aisle and had people either offer a word of support or—usually—criticise me for being a bad parent. The line I always used was, “You tell me when you have an autistic child and take them shopping, and I’ll tell you what the problem is”. It is very...

Air Force (Constitution) Act 1917 — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Sexism, sir!

International Trade: UK Export Finance (23 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: What steps his Department is taking to promote to British companies the use of UK Export Finance.

International Trade: UK Export Finance (23 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnwick and Amble now have innovative high-tech software businesses designing unique products that have serious global market potential. Can the Minister confirm that these businesses will be able to access UK export finance to reach into new countries, boost British exports and bring new high-tech jobs into my constituency? He is, of course, welcome to stop off on his way...

Women and Equalities: BAME Women (23 Nov 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Does the Minister agree that the welcome announcement in the Budget yesterday of £600 per pupil towards the study of maths at higher than GCSE level will be of huge benefit for BAME women, and women across the board, because many studies show that women with higher science, technology, engineering and maths qualifications can earn up to 20% more?
