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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Feb 2019)

Mary Glindon: Can the Minister tell the House whether it is a requirement for prison governors to stay up to date with control and restraint training to receive the required hours addition allowance?

Equitable Life (31 Jan 2019)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to follow the eloquent and succinct right hon. Member for New Forest West (Sir Desmond Swayne). I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) and my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North East (Fabian Hamilton) for their work as chair and co-chair of the all-party group in fighting for justice for Equitable Life policyholders. I make no apology for...

Equitable Life (31 Jan 2019)

Mary Glindon: I thank my hon. Friend for that question, which I will be addressing later. It is frustrating for us to know that justice has not been done, but how much worse must be the anger and frustration of those who feel cheated? Today’s motion specifically calls upon the Government to make a commitment to provide full compensation to victims of the scandal, with the end of austerity now in sight....

HMRC Estate Transformation (29 Jan 2019)

Mary Glindon: Unlike the CEO of HMRC, will the Minister show some common sense and heed the PCS union, which says he should halt his programme and instead concentrate on keeping the expertise, amounting to thousands of years, of staff at offices under threat?

Children with Life-limiting Conditions — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (29 Jan 2019)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on securing the debate. He and I are both members of the all-party group for muscular dystrophy, so I know that his commitment to the issues being discussed this morning is genuine. Following on from my hon. Friend the Member for West Ham (Lyn Brown), I will talk about...

Courts It System (23 Jan 2019)

Mary Glindon: Earlier this week, a constituent contacted me because of MOJ cuts. He is concerned that Newcastle county court is at least 22 staff short and is two months behind with its workload. As well as overstretched staff having the added problem of the IT failure, he is extremely concerned that they cannot deliver for the people they are there to serve. How does the Minister respond to these...

Freehold Estate Fees (22 Jan 2019)

Mary Glindon: I congratulate my hon. Friend, as everyone else has, on securing this really important debate. Something that really frightened me about the case of one of my constituents was that she did not realise that if she defaults on her rent charge, the rent charge owner can repossess her property and enjoy the same rights as if she had never had the transfer of the freehold in the first place. I am...

Backbench Business: Recognition of Fibromyalgia as a Disability — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Mary Glindon: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate and on the awareness day that he hosted last year, which was a very informative and moving event. Given all that has been said about sufferers, does he agree that, without the help of support groups such as the one in Newcastle, people with fibromyalgia would perhaps not have any outside support to help them with benefit queries or...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Rugby (Mark Pawsey). Like many other Members, I have been contacted by hundreds of constituents in the last few weeks about the meaningful vote. The vast majority of those people, whether they voted to leave the EU or remain, have asked me to represent them by voting against the Prime Minister’s withdrawal agreement, as they all agree on one...

Deaths of Homeless People: Business of the House (20 Dec 2018)

Mary Glindon: Following the launch of its alcohol charter, the drugs, alcohol and justice cross-party parliamentary group, which I co-chair, wrote to the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, the hon. Member for Louth and Horncastle (Victoria Atkins), seeking a meeting with her—[Interruption.] The Minister has just taken her place in the Chamber. It has been several months. Can the Leader...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Dec 2018)

Mary Glindon: Will the Prime Minister quickly intervene to overcome the difficulties at the Home Office which are obstructing my constituent, Lara Smith, from accessing her vital medication, Dronabinol, and which may mean that she will have to face unaffordable procurement costs, plus hundreds of pounds for the drug itself?

Traidcraft and Fair Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Dec 2018)

Mary Glindon: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. I could share many happy memories of buying Traidcraft goods from the late 70s. My sister used to run a stall for Traidcraft in her church, St Robert’s in Morpeth. She ran an evening at the place where I worked in North Shields. It is not just about getting gifts and helping people to have nice things from abroad; what was crucial was...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Mary Glindon: I agree with my hon. Friend that people being called stupid was completely wrong. Does she agree that people in North Tyneside, although I did not agree with the way they voted, were right when they made a decision against unscrupulous work practices and foreign agencies bringing in European workers denied a proper rate of pay and denying local people jobs?

Mary Glindon: What recent discussions he has had with the Home Secretary on drug-related crime in Wales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Drug-related Crime (5 Dec 2018)

Mary Glindon: The chair of the National Police Chiefs’ Council has warned that relying on local taxpayers while slashing funding from Westminster will mean tough choices about priorities for many local forces. Surely rising drug-related crime should be a priority. Will the Minister commit to fighting for more central Government funding for the police in Wales, so that they can effectively tackle those...
