Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Topical Questions (10 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: The Deputy Prime Minister wants the House of Lords to be more accountable, yet his Government are giving new dictatorial powers to elected mayors to veto decisions made by elected councillors. Will he say where the accountability is there?

Energy and Climate Change: Consumer Credit (12 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: What assessment he has made of the potential effects on consumers of proposed changes to the Consumer Credit Act 1974 regarding early repayments and the green deal.

Energy and Climate Change: Consumer Credit (12 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: Given that the Department’s own impact assessment predicts interest rates as high as 9.5% under the green deal, does the Minister think the added possibility of a hefty penalty for early repayment will help to present a compelling case to families hoping to bring their energy bills down?

NHS (Rationing of Care) (16 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: This issue has already been raised today in the debate on a motion in the main business of the House, but I believe that the growing concern about rationing in the NHS justifies further debate tonight. For almost as long as the NHS has existed, rationing has been a matter of concern. Resources are finite, but in the past two years rationing has reached an unprecedented level; more than 125...

NHS (Rationing of Care) (16 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: I will.

NHS (Rationing of Care) (16 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: I certainly will, and my hon. Friend may find that at the end of my speech I reiterate some of what he has said. There is rationing in other areas, too, with 66% of trusts limiting cataract surgery and more than half rationing weight-loss surgery and hip and knee operations. Dr Richard Vautrey of the British Medical Association describes the situation as a “cost-saving exercise”, saying...

NHS (Rationing of Care) (16 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: I certainly join my hon. Friend in asking the Government to publish the assessment. In denying the findings of Labour’s survey of rationing and the supporting evidence from the BMA and other professional bodies working in the NHS, the Government are denying the people of this country the full NHS service that they deserve and have contributed towards.

NHS (Rationing of Care) (16 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. As I have outlined, one of the terrible things is that people have to pay. However, in some instances, treatment is simply not available any longer. Finally, I should say that my party accepts that there has to be a debate on some treatments that are of borderline value, but that debate should be part of a national review. I hope the Minister will...

NHS (Rationing of Care) (16 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: Does the Minister therefore disagree with all that has been said by the BMA and other professionals about their concerns about the rationing that is taking place? Does he doubt them? Does he think that the thousands of people who have contacted Labour’s health check are not telling the truth?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Social Care (17 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: What steps he is taking to bring forward legislative proposals on the funding of social care.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Social Care (17 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: Last week the Secretary of State dismissed the concerns of Labour MPs about councils being hard pressed to find funds to implement any of the proposals. The Local Government Association stated that there was no money. Will the Minister now commit to legislation in this Parliament to sort out the funding of social care at local level?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (17 Jul 2012)

Mary Glindon: In the north-east region, there is one neuromuscular care adviser providing dedicated specialist care and support for more than 3,000 people with muscular dystrophy and associated conditions. Will the Minister give assurances that care advisers will continue to be funded and commissioned at specialist NHS Commissioning Board level so that they can carry on supporting community teams across...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Voluntary Sector Funding (5 Sep 2012)

Mary Glindon: What estimate he has made of the total reduction in funding to the voluntary sector in 2011-12.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Voluntary Sector Funding (5 Sep 2012)

Mary Glindon: In the north-east, funding reductions are forcing 48% of voluntary sector organisations to close services and 28% to reduce the number of beneficiaries they support. What impact does the Minister think such losses will have on the Government’s plans to increase the role of the voluntary sector in delivering public services?

Business of the House: Housing and Planning (6 Sep 2012)

Mary Glindon: Further to the Secretary of State’s answers on the simplification of and increase in the development rights of householders, will he say exactly what redress and legal rights will be given to neighbours who have an objection and find that good will is not the answer?

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Dairy Industry (13 Sep 2012)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) on securing this timely debate. I speak not only as someone who has the honour of serving on the Select Committee on Environment, Food and Rural Affairs under the able chairmanship of the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Miss McIntosh) but...

Bills Presented — European Union (Croatian Accession and Irish Protocol) Bill: Backbench Business — 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (18 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Newark (Patrick Mercer), who has defended the motion so eloquently. I thank the Backbench Business Committee and congratulate the hon. Member for Basildon and Billericay (Mr Baron) on securing this important debate. He has worked extremely hard over the past few months on behalf of the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and its...

Bills Presented — European Union (Croatian Accession and Irish Protocol) Bill: Backbench Business — 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (18 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: The Scottish battalions are mentioned because of the unfortunately political manner in which the Government are carrying out the disbandment. The cuts will not only cost jobs but cost people their careers, could result in thousands of ex-servicemen and women facing long-term unemployment, and in time could pose a threat to the security of our nation. In the north-east, 200 soldiers will lose...

Bills Presented — European Union (Croatian Accession and Irish Protocol) Bill: Backbench Business — 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (18 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: I give way to the hon. Member for Bridgwater and West Somerset (Mr Liddell-Grainger) first.
