Mary Glindon: I congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on securing this important debate. I, too, have a young constituent, Sam McKie, who has SMA type 2. I hope the right hon.

As he says, we are all weak mortals, but if that deterioration is...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Industrial Strategy: North-East of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (5 Jun 2019)

Mary Glindon: I neglected to congratulate the Minister on his appointment. We are all pleased to hear that he has roots in the north-east and a personal knowledge of it, and we will call on that—he has dropped himself right in it. I hope that the issues about British steel, which have been stressed over and again, will be carried forward because they are so important. Will the Minister take on board and...

There is an...

Industrial Strategy: North-East of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (5 Jun 2019)
