Industrial Strategy: North-East of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (5 Jun 2019)

Mary Glindon: ...issues about British steel, which have been stressed over and again, will be carried forward because they are so important. Will the Minister take on board and pass on the message that a no-deal Brexit is no good for the north-east in any shape or form? It would be catastrophic.

Industrial Strategy: North-East of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (5 Jun 2019)

Mary Glindon: ...that people and businesses can make the right connections in Sunderland, South Tyneside and Durham. As the north-east is the only region that exports more than it imports, we will be hit hardest by Brexit. I had not mentioned Brexit up until now, but it had to come in somewhere. For 2014 to 2020, our region received £437 million from the European structural investment funds, which will...

Kurdistan Region in Iraq (6 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: ...the Kurdistan region and Baghdad, if there is no opportunity to fly there directly.

Mary Glindon: heavily dependent on trade with Europe. However, 59.5% of voters in my constituency wanted to leave, and across the whole borough, which incorporates the Tynemouth constituency, 53.7% voted for Brexit. I was shocked and disappointed by the result, both locally and nationally, but I accepted it as a democratic result. I know that the vast majority of voters I spoke to before and after...

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?

Food and Farming: Employment Opportunities — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

Mary Glindon: ...bringing in skilled labour from the EU, which represents 29% of their workforce—120,000 workers. A high number of these workers carry out vital production, technical and specialist roles.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Farming (2 Mar 2017)

Mary Glindon: ...that the Government’s lack of clarity risked stifling the farming industry. This week, it was reported that the price of agricultural land fell by 7% in the past year due to the uncertainty of Brexit.

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Animal Welfare Standards in Farming (24 Jan 2017)

Mary Glindon: ...real concerns about animal welfare and also imparted a lot of knowledge to us. On this side of the Chamber, we want to see the legal standards set by the EU protected and enhanced even further post-Brexit. We owe a debt of gratitude to all those involved in farming and its associated industries for all they do to maintain high animal welfare standards across the UK. In 2013, the Department...

Non-recyclable and Non-compostable Packaging — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (23 Jan 2017)

Mary Glindon: ...of companies such as Coca-Cola, Unilever, Mars and the People’s Postcode Lottery, I sincerely hope that the work done under the global plan will have a great influence in the UK. The impact of Brexit on much of the work of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is still not clear. The most immediate questions relate to the EU’s circular economy package, which will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Quality (19 Jan 2017)

Mary Glindon: ..., and many more are suffering associated health conditions. With no guarantee from either the Prime Minister or the Secretary of State that last December’s strict EU laws will be introduced post-Brexit, how can the country trust the Government to ensure cleaner air in future?

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Mary Glindon: ...communities in the top 20% most deprived areas to utilise both ESF and ERDF funding to achieve economic growth in their own localities. I hope that the north-east will not be fooled by those in the Brexit camp who claim that we would be better off leaving the EU.
