Patricia Glass (born 14 February 1957) is a British Labour Party politician, who has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for North West Durham since 2010.

She was born in Esh Winning, County Durham.

Career[edit]

Before becoming an MP, Glass worked in various positions with Local Education Authorities, and became a Government Education Adviser specialising in Special Needs Education, and Assistant Director of Education in Sunderland and Greenwich.[2]

She was elected as a councillor on Lanchester Parish Council in 2007. Subsequently she was selected as the Labour Party parliamentary candidate for North West Durham, with the retirement of Hilary Armstrong, and was elected at the 2010 general election. Glass's particular interest is education and she has sat on the Education Select Committee [3]

In 2014 Glass accused rival politicians in Parliament of "orchestrated barracking" of women with regional accents, saying "I get the impression they think women who are northerners should not be there."[4]
