Defence: Topical Questions (25 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: Thank you, Mr Speaker. As satisfaction with pay and pension benefits is at its lowest level ever recorded, does the Minister accept that seven years of below-inflation pay rises have had a severe effect on the morale of our armed forces?

Backbench Business - Services for People with Autismbackbench Business: NICE Appraisals: Rare Diseases Treatments (21 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Reigate (Crispin Blunt). I thank the Backbench Business Committee for agreeing to the debate. I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Blaydon (Liz Twist), who is, as she said, my fellow member of the all-party parliamentary group for muscular dystrophy. She made a lucid and compelling case for the review of the NICE appraisal process....

Backbench Business - Services for People with Autismbackbench Business: NICE Appraisals: Rare Diseases Treatments (21 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: That is true, and I think it will be highlighted again and again in this debate. The delay for patients in this country is made all the more frustrating because the Scottish Medicines Consortium approved Spinraza for children with SMA type 1 last May, and it now has a new ultra-orphan pathway and has speedily reassessed Spinraza, and as a result children and adults with SMA types 2 and 3 will...

Health and Care Professions Council: Registration Fees (14 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: My hon. Friend is making a good argument about the different levels of pay. Does she agree that one of the most unfair arguments for raising the fees is that they are lower than for other professional bodies? Dentists and doctors get paid much more money, so there is no fairness in that comparison.

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (14 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: Balance, the North East Alcohol Office, is doing excellent work in our region to raise awareness of the link between alcohol and breast cancer. What steps is the Minister taking to increase awareness of the health risks associated with alcohol that apply to women?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: PAVA Pepper Spray (12 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: I thank the Minister for that answer, which is good news. I hope he will keep in mind that a significant proportion of prisoners expressed the view that PAVA is necessary, so I hope he will give me a guarantee that he will stick to his word and that this vital protective equipment will be rolled out soon in the spring.

Kurdistan Region in Iraq (6 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I congratulate the hon. Member for Filton and Bradley Stoke (Jack Lopresti) on securing this important debate. He is the excellent chair of the all-party group for the Kurdistan region of Iraq, of which I am pleased to be a member. Although I have not visited the region yet, it has been an honour to meet representatives of the...

Kurdistan Region in Iraq (6 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: I thank the hon. Gentleman for emphasising that particular point. I think it adds fuel to the fire of why we want that situation to change. The prospect of enhanced business connections and increased tourist travel depends on whether the Foreign and Commonwealth Office will consider revising its travel advice to UK travellers. At present, the advice means that UK travellers have to buy extra...

School Funding — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (4 Mar 2019)

Mary Glindon: I am glad to hear that the hon. Gentleman’s constituency’s schools are getting more funding. If more money is being spent in some schools, that is great, but how does he justify the fact that schools in areas such as North Tyneside are losing 3% funding per pupil? It does not make the balance any better. Surely he cannot rejoice that his schools are doing better when other schools are...

Business of the House (28 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: Last Friday, the Ministry of Justice admitted that the roll-out of PAVA spray to prison officers, which was due to start in January, will now be delayed for up to two years. In light of that broken promise and the current epidemic of violence engulfing our prisons, will the Leader of the House ensure that we have an opportunity to debate how best to protect our brave prison officers to whom...

Future Free Trade Agreements (21 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: The Australian Trade Minister has said that other countries in the Asia Pacific region would be considered before us for membership of the trans-Pacific partnership, because we are not in that region. How does the Secretary of State feel about that? Does it dint his confidence at all about any agreements we could reach?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (21 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: What steps have the Government taken to ensure that once we leave the EU pet travel scheme, the UK becomes a listed country so that people such as guide dog owners are not disadvantaged?

Backbench Business: Santander Closures and Local Communities — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (14 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I congratulate the hon. Member for Glasgow East (David Linden) on securing a really important debate, as has been shown by today’s speeches. He opened it with a fantastic, detailed explanation of why it is so important to talk about how our communities will be affected by what is happening. The Backbench Business Committee must...

Education Committee: Closure of Santander Banks (7 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate. For customers, as she says, it is not just the banks but the other shops on our high streets that will be affected. Taking away this resource does not help older people or people who do not want to use internet banking.

Backbench Business: Rough Sleeping — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (7 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: Organisations such as Depaul and the YMCA have projects that help thousands of young people who sleep rough, nationally and in North Tyneside. Does my hon. Friend agree that those organisations should have the Government’s ear on policy issues? Depaul, for example, would like to see the shared accommodation rate put back to the 30th percentile of local rents, so young people can have...

Mary Glindon: What assessment she has made of the adequacy of provision of facilities in fire stations for female firefighters.

Women and Equalities: Female Firefighters: Fire Station Facilities (7 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: In addition to working with the Home Office to ensure that there are better facilities, what steps is the Minister taking to encourage more women to take up a career in firefighting?

Petition - the Future of Maintained Nursery Schools: Prostate Cancer (6 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: On research, does the Minister think that those who are diagnosed with cancer should be encouraged to take part in clinical trials that aid research and help us to find ways to halt or even cure these horrendous diseases? I think this is underplayed and that we should encourage as many people as possible to help with research by themselves getting involved in trials.

Petition - the Future of Maintained Nursery Schools: Prostate Cancer (6 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this important Adjournment debate. As well as early diagnosis, this is about people’s awareness that they themselves may possibly have the symptoms. When my husband was diagnosed, he just thought he had a chill. Unfortunately, his is incurable, but he thought no more about it than that he had a chill. An even more important issue than having...
