Business of the House (17 Dec 2020)

Catherine McKinnell: ...with the biggest pre-existing health inequalities also being at the greatest risk of closure due to the impact of covid. In Newcastle upon Tyne North, we are very concerned about the future of West Denton pool, which closed when lockdown first began in March and has not yet reopened. It is vital that those living in the outer west of Newcastle can fulfil their new year health resolutions...

Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Jun 2021)

Catherine McKinnell: ...and we all need help and encouragement to live healthier lives post pandemic, yet since last March over 400 leisure and fitness facilities have permanently closed, including our much-loved swimming pool in West Denton, and many thousands more are under threat. Will the Prime Minister do two things about that today: expand and extend the national leisure recovery fund to fund these...

Housing, communities and local government: Health Inequalities: Levelling-up Fund (19 Jul 2021)

Catherine McKinnell: the most deprived areas will meet the required national swimming standard when they leave primary school, compared with 77% in the most affluent areas. More than 400 leisure centres—including West Denton swimming pool in my constituency—have already closed and many more are under threat.

Sport Sector: Financial Support (19 Nov 2020)

Catherine McKinnell: ...affluent areas of the country enjoying reopening post pandemic, whereas those in the more deprived and disadvantaged communities remaining unviable.

According to ukactive, more than 400 sports and leisure facilities have closed permanently since March 2020, including the much valued and loved West Denton pool in Newcastle North, which has sadly not reopened due to the devastating financial impact of the pandemic. According to the 2019 indices of deprivation, the neighbourhood where that...

Newcastle upon Tyne City Council (8 Jan 2013)

Catherine McKinnell: ..., to me, represents part of the great Victorian ideal of municipal service provision—facilities that, once closed, will probably be lost for ever. Equally saddening are proposals to close City pool by 2016, and in my constituency to reduce funding for Newburn leisure centre while seeking alternative arrangements to manage Outer West pool and Gosforth pool. This scenario is frankly...

Affordable and Safe Housing for All (18 May 2021)

Catherine McKinnell: ...about the long-term failure to deliver on infrastructure and local facilities, which has been so problematic in Newcastle Great Park; it could be replicated across swathes of Newcastle’s Outer West where many thousands of homes are already being built and thousands more are in the pipeline. The scale and pace of housing development across the Outer West of Newcastle feel overwhelming for...

Covid-19: Restrictions on Gyms and Sport — [David Mundell in the Chair] (23 Nov 2020)

Catherine McKinnell: ...I can, especially during the current situation. I go to the gym 3 times a week. Senior citizens like myself should have access to facilities.” Natalia says: “Leisure centres, gyms and swimming pools are an essential part of our community and have massively helped with my mental health. It’s a place to go to burn off energy and be in my own head that I just cannot achieve in my home...

Water Safety — [David Mundell in the Chair] (12 Jul 2021)

Catherine McKinnell: ...what cold water shock is and what to do about it. It is about having a healthy wariness of the water and knowing how deceptively dangerous it can be outside the relative safety of a swimming pool. We only need to watch the Royal National Lifeboat Institution programme “Saving Lives” to see that most water accidents occur because people do not know those things. It is about lack of...
