Monday 30 November 2020: Transport for London: Funding — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (30 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: Colleagues, some people have withdrawn from the call list; others are not here, but they may turn up. As a best guess, if everyone speaks for five or six minutes at the most, everyone will be called.

Business of the House (26 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate on the future management of c2c rail services in my constituency? The service used to be known as the “misery line”. It then became the “happy line”, but unfortunately it now become the misery line again, because, inexplicably, timetable changes have been made, with trains cancelled, but the trains and platforms are overcrowded. That is...

Sir David Amess: What steps he is taking to support zoos during the covid-19 outbreak.

Environment, food and rural affairs: Covid-19: Zoos (26 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: On a recent visit to Chester zoo, I saw its excellent conservation work and learned at first hand about the remarkable way it is coping with the coronavirus pandemic. However, the zoo animal fund criteria for access seem to be very peculiar, because zoos seem to have to be on the verge of closure before they can get any money. Surely that is wrong. Will my hon. Friend look at those criteria...

Church Commissioners: Local Communities: Covid-19 (26 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: What steps the Church of England has taken to support local communities throughout the covid-19 outbreak.

Church Commissioners: Local Communities: Covid-19 (26 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: I know that my hon. Friend would agree with me that at this particular time our churches are more important than ever. Certainly in my constituency, they do remarkable work—for instance, with the Southend night shelters—and during the coronavirus pandemic, they have been delivering food and medicines to vulnerable people. Will my hon. Friend please tell the House what the Church is doing...

Spending Review 2020 and OBR Forecast (25 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: In what must be the most challenging circumstances ever to deliver a spending review, I welcome the Restart scheme to help the unemployed. Last year, £500 million was announced to help youth services, and Southend YMCA greatly benefited from that. Will the Chancellor recommit to that £500 million, and will he set out a timeframe in which that can be delivered over the next five years?

Leaseholders and Cladding (24 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: A number of constituents in a low-rise block of flats in Southend West have been unable to get their properties insured because of cladding issues. It will cost £400,000 to remove the cladding and their service charges will escalate. Will my right hon. Friend please reiterate the principle that those costs should not be passed on to tenants or leaseholders?

Sport Sector: Financial Support (19 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: I am delighted that the Chancellor’s money tree continues to bear rich fruit, but while the premier league is cash-rich, lower league clubs such as Southend United have been suffering during the pandemic as a result, dare I say, of poor results and finances. Will my hon. Friend write to me to let me know precisely how much of this money Southend United will get? Will he also look at golf...

Sir David Amess: What steps his Department is taking to protect care home residents during the covid-19 outbreak.

Health and Social Care: Covid-19: Care Home Residents (17 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: I know that my hon. Friend has already touched on this subject, but she will be aware that since April, many people have not been able to visit relatives and loved ones in care homes, so will she please tell the House again what is being done to improve testing and to roll out the flu vaccine to ensure that these visits can resume safely after the latest lockdown?

Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Services: Covid-19 — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (12 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: It is a great honour for me to make my maiden speech from the Opposition side of the Chamber, although it seems a little strange. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for North Warwickshire (Craig Tracey) on securing the debate. I agreed with everything he said. Yes, I am reminded of my hon. Friends the Members for Norwich North (Chloe Smith) and for Chatham and Aylesford (Tracey...

Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee (12 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: I got terribly excited yesterday when I heard that my right hon. Friend would be making this statement, and of course I welcome his announcement. Will he commit to coming forward with further statements when he can announce as part of the celebrations an unveiling of a new statue of Her Majesty the Queen and a statue of Dame Vera Lynn? And will he fix something that is an obvious omission?...

Business of the House (12 Nov 2020)

Sir David Amess: Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate on unexplained deaths through epilepsy? On 16 November, SUDEP Action will be publishing a report that details how people with epilepsy have coped during the coronavirus pandemic. It makes some excellent recommendations, and I do hope that the Government will act on them.
