Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: Would the hon. Gentleman say that there is an exception in which it might always be important to install safe standing, because away supporters tend to stand? At Newcastle United the away supporters are right up in the gods, and stand in a dangerous position. Might that be an exception for every ground?

Health and Social Care: Highly Specialised Technologies Evaluations (19 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: What recent discussions his Department has had with representatives of NICE on increasing the capacity of the highly specialised technologies evaluation process.

Health and Social Care: Highly Specialised Technologies Evaluations (19 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: There is a risk that new treatments for life-limiting conditions, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy, might not be approved by NICE, so will the Minister meet me and Muscular Dystrophy UK to discuss ways to facilitate access to treatments, as highlighted by the charity’s FastTrack campaign?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (11 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: During a recent visit to Iraq, a delegation from the all-party group on Kurdistan met British soldiers who have trained thousands of Peshmerga, helping the brave allies whose sacrifice and resistance to ISIS enhances our safety, and whose rights in a federal Iraq need international protection. Will the Minister confirm that the Department will continue that vital mentoring mission?

Public Sector Pay Policy — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Mary Glindon: I am intervening as a member of the associate and retired members branch of PCS and as part of the parliamentary group. Further to what the hon. Gentleman said in response to the last intervention, does he think it is ludicrous that there will be civil servants and public sector workers in receipt of universal credit who will be under scrutiny by the Department for Work and Pensions to...

Business of the House (24 May 2018)

Mary Glindon: New research by the York Health Economics Consortium has found that scrapping prescription charges for people with Parkinson’s and inflammatory bowel disease will save the NHS more than £20 million a year. Can the Leader of the House please ask Health Ministers to meet representatives of the Prescription Charges Coalition to discuss this important information?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 May 2018)

Mary Glindon: In North Tyneside and across the UK, homebuyers are being sold new houses that have serious defects by developers such as Bellway and Persimmon with no means of sufficient redress. Following the recent Government consultation, will the Prime Minister put her weight behind establishing a new homes ombudsman to give those consumers the proper redress that they urgently need?

Mary Glindon: What message will the Chancellor be sending to the thousands of public and civil servants who will be at the march organised by the TUC on 12 May asking for a fully funded, above-inflation pay rise?

Easter Adjournment (29 Mar 2018)

Mary Glindon: It is my honour to be a co-chair of the drug, alcohol and justice parliamentary group, which is just one of the many parliamentary groups founded and facilitated by Simeon Andrews, who died suddenly last month. I was among a number of Members from both Houses who attended his funeral on Monday, and judging by the number of Members from every party who signed the early-day motion in his...

International Trade: Topical Questions (29 Mar 2018)

Mary Glindon: The north-east is a net gainer from the EU, and 60% of our exports are to EU countries, but the region is set to be worst off after Brexit. How will the Department make sure we do not lose out as part of the Government’s global north vision?

Backbench Business: Freedom of Religion or Belief — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (1 Mar 2018)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. It is quite difficult to follow the hon. Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart). He has provoked a lot of questions on why we think religious freedom is important and why we need to move forward with it and for the Government to do more to support oppressed people. I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Supported Housing (5 Feb 2018)

Mary Glindon: The Government have promised that all short-term provision currently funded by the welfare system will continue to be funded at the same level by local authorities until 2020, but will the Minister confirm that there will be no cut in funding after that?

Mary Glindon: Can the Minister tell the House why Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service is paying more than £30 million to PwC consultants for a digital court system that has not been subject to democratic processes, and is not backed by evidence that it will improve access to justice?

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Dec 2017)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to speak under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate the hon. Member for Worthing West (Sir Peter Bottomley) and my hon. Friend the Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) on securing this debate. Notwithstanding the announcement that was made today, like other hon. Members I have a number of constituents who have been adversely affected by the vexed issue...

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Dec 2017)

Mary Glindon: I am grateful for the hon. Gentleman’s straightforward statement. It cannot be right that sales reps quote prices for the freehold but do not deliver, or that a freehold can be sold to a third party without telling residents. Nor can it be right that solicitors do not inform home buyers of the pitfalls, or that residents find themselves with charges and restrictions far beyond the original...

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Dec 2017)

Mary Glindon: I hope that Nationwide is duly embarrassed by what my hon. Friend has said. Unscrupulous developers and agents are profiteering on the backs of thousands of ordinary people, who struggled and worked hard to buy their homes. The Government have to go beyond what they announced and act now to end what nearly amounts to extortion.

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Mary Glindon: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I, too, thank my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones) for introducing the debate on behalf of the Petitions Committee. Hundreds of people in North Tyneside signed the petition, and I have received emails from dozens of constituents asking me to be here today—some of them are former colleagues with whom I...

Drug Addiction — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Mary Glindon: Does my hon. Friend agree with the drugs, alcohol and justice cross-party parliamentary group that, to reduce alcohol and drugs-related deaths and illnesses, a co-ordinated harm reduction strategy needs to be prioritised?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (16 Nov 2017)

Mary Glindon: With more than 430,000 people having a serious gambling addiction and a further 2 million people possibly developing one, can the Minister say exactly what the Government are doing to tackle this serious problem?
