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

Mary Glindon: Both those points strengthen the case for maintaining the 2RRF. I have been proud to support the local campaign, which has received the kind support of the Newcastle Journal and the Evening Chronicle, which has been fantastic in helping to publicise the fight across our region. The veterans and the Fusiliers have played a massive role in promoting the campaign, and have organised two public...

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 do not think I mentioned the Minister being “illogical”. The point is that those battalions are poorly recruited and have to go abroad, when in 2RRF we have the strength of the Army being made up from people who are local, as is the regimental tradition.Moreover, I would point out to the Minister that there has been criticism of the decision from top-ranking figures, who state that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (22 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: Last Thursday, the House voted to oppose the disbandment of the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. Will the Government now have the humility to accept that Commons decision?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: National Pay Arrangements (23 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: What his policy is on upholding national pay arrangements in the NHS.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: National Pay Arrangements (23 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: In fairness, a truly national health service demands a national pay scheme, and the British Medical Association has warned that the move to regional pay undermines the ethos of “national” in our national health service. How does the Minister intend to act on that warning?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Bovine TB and Badger Control (23 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: Three times today the Minister has said that we are not yet there with a vaccine, so will he now focus on fast-tracking a vaccine programme and the DIVA test as the only long-term solution to tackling this devastating disease?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Ash Dieback Disease (29 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: What advice would the Minister give to people who might have trees with the disease in their garden? How will he encourage them to come forward if they are concerned that they might be blamed for bringing the disease into the country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria (30 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: What recent reports he has received on progress in uniting Syrian opposition forces around a credible transition plan for a post-Assad Syria.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria (30 Oct 2012)

Mary Glindon: Can the Secretary of State say what progress he is making with the Governments of Russia and China on their position, which is clearly proving a stumbling block to action by the UN Security Council?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Jobseekers (Barriers to Work) (5 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: The unemployed former Remploy workers in my constituency have seen little or no help from the DWP or Remploy since they lost their jobs. What will the Secretary of State do about that?

Business of the House: Growth and Infrastructure Bill (5 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Henley (John Howell), although he will find that I do not agree with his views on the Bill. I have to agree with the Local Government Association that the Bill represents a blow to democracy and is at odds with the Government’s localism programme. As a former councillor and planning committee member, I fully appreciate the importance of the...

Business of the House: Growth and Infrastructure Bill (5 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: I agree with my hon. Friend, and for the people of Battle Hill this will be not a fun experience at all but a very serious one that will keep their concerns going. That is exactly what the Secretary of State is doing with planning matters in the Bill, and it is why there is such great concern about his proposals. Local councils, on average, determine householder planning appeals in fewer than...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Topical Questions (20 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: The Deputy Prime Minister will at least be pleased that last Thursday his party won the by-election in Wallsend, even though the turn-out was low. As the public largely boycotted the police and crime commissioner elections, which cost £100 million, does he think that it would have been better for his party’s fortunes if that money had been spent on the 3,000 front-line police he promised...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Deferred Prosecution Agreements (20 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: What assessment he has made of the potential effect of the introduction of deferred prosecution agreements on the level of economic crime.

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Deferred Prosecution Agreements (20 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: What steps will the Minister take if the proportion of cases resolved by the CPS creeps higher than the Government have forecast in the impact assessment? Does he agree that a sunset clause of five years would be a sensible safeguard?

Housing Benefit (Under-25s) (21 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: I am grateful to have been chosen to lead this important debate under your chairmanship, Mr Crausby. I want to say first that although I understand that the Government have not yet adopted the policy in question, the mere suggestion that the Prime Minister proposes to cut housing benefit to those aged under 25 has raised great concern nationally. I have received—for which I am...

Housing Benefit (Under-25s) (21 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: Yes, I agree with my hon. Friend, and I will refer to those statistics. Unless we have been through the same situation as those young people, none of us can imagine it, and I wonder how it will affect their future. Of those aged under 25 who claim housing benefit, 17% are in work, but, as the Prince’s Trust has pointed out, they need that benefit to close the gap between their earnings and...

Housing Benefit (Under-25s) (21 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention, and hope that the Minister will have listened to what he said. Many young people live with their parents, because that is the only way they can manage work; they simply cannot live in a home of their own. The consequences for young people who cannot live with their parents are serious. Crisis has found that, as my hon. Friend the Member for...

Housing Benefit (Under-25s) (21 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: That is a concern of several agencies and organisations that are in the same boat. I hope that the Minister will say something about it. Half the young people who receive housing benefit have children. Moreover, 28,000 young people receiving housing benefit are sick or disabled. How would the Minister expect those people to cope without any housing benefit at all? While places such as St...

Housing Benefit (Under-25s) (21 Nov 2012)

Mary Glindon: The hon. Gentleman has raised a particularly important point—one that we come back to time and again. When we see the low wages for apprentices and many young people, how else can they afford a home, with or without housing benefit? I want to give a couple of examples to show how young people’s lives need to and can be turned around, and why housing benefit is crucial; obviously, I will...
