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

Mary Glindon: Upholding our standards must be paramount and we must stick firm. I hope that the Government do not try to water down any standards unilaterally. When the Secretary of State addressed the Oxford farmers conference, she announced regulations that she would like to scrap, including the three-crop rule. If the public are to have confidence in any of the Government’s promises on animal welfare,...

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

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship today, Mr Bone. There may not have been many contributions to the debate, but they have all been relevant and informative. I thank the Petitions Committee for putting the debate forward and the hon. Member for Northampton South (David Mackintosh) for his opening remarks, including his stark comments about the future of the oceans and what our...

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

Mary Glindon: Many happy returns, Mr Speaker, to both you and Rev. Rose. The Government have lost the confidence of this House on air quality. More than 50,000 people are dying prematurely each year because of air pollution, 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...

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform: Christmas Adjournment (20 Dec 2016)

Mary Glindon: I would like to add to the sentiments expressed by the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) at the beginning of his speech about the sad incident in Germany, especially in relation to the memory of our dear friend Jo Cox. The hon. Member for Enfield, Southgate (Mr Burrowes), a fellow member of the Drugs, Alcohol and Justice parliamentary group, asked on the day of the summer...

Greyhound Welfare (15 Dec 2016)

Mary Glindon: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell, and to hear of your particular interest in this serious subject. I congratulate the Chair of the EFRA Committee, the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), and all members of the Committee on their excellent and, I think we all agree, thorough report. I thank them for the detailed work they undertook to produce it,...

Business of the House (15 Dec 2016)

Mary Glindon: According to Department for Work and Pensions figures released yesterday, more than 120,000 disabled people have had their benefits severely downgraded despite living with chronic progressive conditions. So following the earlier question, may we have a debate on how reassessments from disability living allowance to the personal independence payment have been conducted?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy (12 Dec 2016)

Mary Glindon: Will the new Royal Fleet Auxiliary ships be built in the UK? If so, will the right hon. Gentleman give a further commitment to buying British in defence procurement, and guarantee the use of British steel to build those ships?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (12 Dec 2016)

Mary Glindon: What assessment have the Government made of the threat of the use of tactical nuclear weapons by Russia, and what action is Britain taking with NATO allies to resist it?

Household Food Insecurity — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (6 Dec 2016)

Mary Glindon: Is not it true that people suffering food insecurity do not buy the best food that they could—the food they need to have a nutritious meal? Do they not often buy food that is calorie-laden, cheap and filling, as opposed to good-quality, nutritious food?

Household Food Insecurity — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (6 Dec 2016)

Mary Glindon: One of the reasons for that given by people who are in food insecurity is the relatively short life of some fruit and veg. Fruit and veg is perhaps beyond the tight budgets of those who cannot afford to buy fresh food every day.

Household Food Insecurity — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (6 Dec 2016)

Mary Glindon: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South Shields (Mrs Lewell-Buck) particularly on her perseverance in securing the debate, which she has sought for more than six months. It is unfortunate that she is not too well today, but no one can say that she has not made an excellent case. We need to thank her for all the work she...

Backbench Business: Transgender Equality (1 Dec 2016)

Mary Glindon: The right hon. Lady mentions health, and the constituents who have contacted me felt that was an area of great inequality. Does she think it is a disgrace and very worrying that 54% of trans people have been told by their GPs that they do not know enough about trans-related healthcare to even provide it?

Equine Slaughterhouses (CCTV) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Nov 2016)

Mary Glindon: Will the Minister give way?

Equine Slaughterhouses (CCTV) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Nov 2016)

Mary Glindon: It was simply to say, Minister, that the Government do not keep a national record of incidents. Such a record would be really beneficial.

Equine Slaughterhouses (CCTV) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Nov 2016)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for Dwyfor Meirionnydd (Liz Saville Roberts) on securing this really important debate. The excellent speeches that we have heard from hon. Members reflect the strong public opinion that CCTV should be installed in all equine slaughterhouses. Forgive me, but I must declare an interest: a member of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (29 Nov 2016)

Mary Glindon: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (29 Nov 2016)

Mary Glindon: So far the Chancellor has disregarded Members’ requests to give justice to the WASPI—Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaign—women. Will he now listen to bodies such as North Tyneside Council, which, under our elected mayor, Norma Redfearn, has written to the Government to ask for a fair transition of the state pension right for all these women?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Milk (24 Nov 2016)

Mary Glindon: The Department’s farm business survey for last year shows that dairy farm incomes fell by 50%, largely owing to lower milk prices. Will the Minister consider introducing a statutory code to safeguard the dairy sector, and will he agree to expand the role of the Groceries Code Adjudicator to cover the primary producers’ relationships with their suppliers and provide more stability for...

Transport: North-east (23 Nov 2016)

Mary Glindon: My hon. Friend set out what she will speak about, but airport passenger duty is also important to the economics of the north-east. Our airports play an equally valid and massive role in helping our economy. We heard nothing today about what will happen with regard to Scotland, but it will be detrimental to our north-east airport if the Scottish Government reduce APD.

English Wine Industry (16 Nov 2016)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I congratulate the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish)—my friend and, his new title, the wine champion—with whom I served on the Select Committee on Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in the previous Parliament. We started and continued the debate with some history lessons, which showed how important wine is in...
