Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Disclosure and Barring Service (3 Dec 2018)

Mary Glindon: What recent assessment he has made of progress on the Disclosure and Barring Service modernisation programme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Disclosure and Barring Service (3 Dec 2018)

Mary Glindon: Does the Minister believe it is appropriate to waste yet more public money by continuing to outsource that vital project? Does she agree with the Public and Commercial Services Union that it should be brought in-house, providing proper accountability and better value for money?

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (28 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: Thank you for your chairmanship, Mr Hosie. I thank all my colleagues who have taken part in the debate. Every local authority in Tyne and Wear has been represented in the debate, and I think that everyone has spoken with one voice in support of our fire services and our fire authority. They have also spoken with one voice in expressing concern about the fact that our fire services might be in...

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (28 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: On that point, let me make it clear that the service given by Tyne and Wear fire and rescue service is the best possible service that we could expect, and that it will always strive to provide that. Only the finances are a problem. It would never be classed as a bad service, by me or by anyone else.

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (28 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: I beg to move, That this House has considered the proposed new integrated risk management plan for Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service. It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hosie. Judging by the attendance of right hon. and hon. Friends from Tyne and Wear and neighbouring constituencies, this debate demonstrates the importance of a good fire service, which is essential to...

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (28 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. I am sure that the Minister heard her question and I hope that he will give her a sound answer. By the next financial year, the revenue support grant will have been reduced by £10.8 million, which is equivalent to 18.2%. There is also a projected gap in financial resources of £2.2 million in the next financial year, which will increase to £3...

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (28 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: I think that would be an extra way to present the case to the Minister, and I hope that he is open to that suggestion. The new IRMP, produced under the Home Office’s fire and rescue national framework, has been prepared in the face of those reductions in spending and the projected gap in financial resources. Since 5 November, it has been out for public consultation, which will close in the...

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (28 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: That concern has been raised by the FBU, and I raised it with the fire chief at my meeting with him. The Christmas period means the consultation is shorter than it ought to be, but I am not sure that the fire authority would be minded to extend it. If it is possible, I hope that it can be done, because the public consultation needs to be just that—public. The aim of the proposed changes in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Outsourced Contracts (26 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: What recent assessment he has made of the quality of service provided under outsourced departmental contracts.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Outsourced Contracts (26 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: Despite the fact that Capita has failed to fulfil its contract for Army recruitment, letting down both the Army and the taxpayer, the Government are now tendering to outsource veterans’ services as well. Does the Minister consider that the Government should be directly consulting and rewarding our veterans rather than multinational defence contractors who have proved time and again that...

Housing Bodies: Accountability — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (20 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: Can we please note that the things that are wrong with these houses are not simply minor issues? I spoke to a woman on Saturday whose staircase had twice collapsed. Another constituent had the roof of their new home collapse. These problems are really serious; they are not just little things that need to be put right after someone has moved in.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2018)

Mary Glindon: I speak as co-chair of the cross-party drugs, alcohol and justice group, and as a member of the all-party group on alcohol harm. With dozens of alcohol-related deaths across the UK every day, those two groups decided that, rather than wait ages for the Government’s alcohol strategy, we would launch our own alcohol charter that advocates achievable steps to improve support for those in need,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Oct 2018)

Mary Glindon: The only way that Smulders in North Tyneside can continue to bid successfully for jacket foundation contracts is if the National Grid cables over the Tyne are moved. Will the Prime Minister commit her good offices to work with National Grid to have the cables removed by 2020, so that Smulders and other major North Tyneside and wider Tyneside manufacturers can win contracts and secure...

Drugs Policy — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Mary Glindon: As to those statistics, the fact that the north-east has a far higher rate of death from drug misuse compared with London shows that there must be a link between deprivation and drug use. I think Alex Boyt, of Blenheim, would like that to be looked at further. Does my hon. Friend agree?

Drugs Policy — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Mary Glindon: The UK Government spent an estimated £1.6 billion on drug law enforcement in 2014-15. Drug treatment has been cut by 14% in the past couple of years. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that is a false economy, especially as Public Health England estimates that for every pound spent on drug treatment, there is a £4 social return?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (9 Oct 2018)

Mary Glindon: If the Minister is sincere when he insists that the decision to build new private prisons is not ideological but based on evidence, why is he trying to bury the evidence by refusing to release the official report on public-versus-private procurement for the two new prisons, despite freedom of information requests from the Prison Officers Association and parliamentary questions that remain...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Mary Glindon: Since the life-changing spinal muscular atrophy treatment Spinraza was rejected by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in its first guidance last month, families affected, including that of young Sam Mckie in North Tyneside, have been left heartbroken. Will the Prime Minister meet me and Muscular Dystrophy UK to discuss the urgent need to make progress on the managed access...

HMP Birmingham (4 Sep 2018)

Mary Glindon: Birmingham is one of the four most violent prisons in England and Wales, and all those prisons are privately operated. Does the Minister agree that, logically, this level of violence is a consequence of running prisons for profit where costs are cut to the bone to maximise returns for shareholders?

Standards: Summer Adjournment (24 Jul 2018)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow North East (Mr Sweeney), who has definitely made his mark with the excellent things he is already doing in the House. I congratulate the two new Members who have made their maiden speeches; I am sure that they will be excellent advocates for their constituents. As a member of the associate and retired members branch of the...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Mary Glindon: My hon. Friend is making a really heartfelt speech. I remember the Save our Swans campaign, and as she has touched on, this was not just about unemployment. Those men who were able to get jobs had to go across the world and leave their families, and another way of decimating the community was removing people.
