Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Contracted Work (28 Nov 2011)

Mary Glindon: Last July, during Department for Work and Pensions questions, the Minister said that in his view, “British-based staff are the best contact centre staff”—[ Official Report, 18 July 2011; Vol. 531, c. 604.] Will he therefore acknowledge the role played by MPs, workers and the Public and Commercial Services Union in persuading Hewlett Packard to drop its plans to offshore more than 200...

Arctic Convoy Veterans Medal (6 Dec 2011)

Mary Glindon: I appreciate the hon. Lady securing the debate and congratulate her on that. My now dear departed uncle was on one of the convoys, and he was thrilled to be awarded the Russian medal, although our brave convoy veterans are not allowed to wear it on the same side as their other decorations. If the veterans can receive that medal from Russia, as they did several years ago with great honour here...

Arctic Convoy Veterans Medal (6 Dec 2011)

Mary Glindon: Veterans who hold the Russian Arctic medal may think the Minister’s comment about regimes that give away medals is disparaging. I hope that he recognises that. Under Winston Churchill, the Government discouraged the award of the Russian medal, but the fact that it was given and that the brave men who received it were recognised should be mirrored in this country. I should be pleased if he...

[Mr Joe Benton in the Chair] (15 Dec 2011)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Benton. I add my congratulations to my right hon. Friend the Member for Cynon Valley (Ann Clwyd) on securing this Back-Bench debate, because for many months workers in the 54 Remploy factories across the country have been waiting for the Government’s decision about their jobs. Given the massive unemployment figures announced this week, I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Children in Care (16 Jan 2012)

Mary Glindon: Placement stability is imperative for good educational and life outcomes for children in care. With swingeing cuts to social services nationally, what measures is the Minister putting in place to assure the House that we will not see a culture of commissioning the cheapest care, regardless of quality?

Tennis (18 Jan 2012)

Mary Glindon: I am sure that my hon. Friend will join me in commending the LTA for investing in one of the most deprived wards in my constituency with a fantastic indoor tennis court at Churchill community college—a very visible site that has been well used by the community.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Local Government Finance (8 Feb 2012)

Mary Glindon: I shall concentrate on what the local government settlement means for my council. I have advised my colleagues many times before in the Chamber that North Tyneside council has a mayor and cabinet system. Unfortunately, it currently has a Tory cabinet and mayor, but 35 of the 60 councillors are Labour. No doubt that number will increase in May. The mayor has decided to go for the zero council...
