Business of the House (23 Sep 2021)

Sir David Amess: I join others in praising Mark Kelly, who really does know where the bodies are buried. Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate on the subject of World Animal Day? Unfortunately it falls on 4 October during the recess, but if we have a later debate it will give the House an opportunity to talk about animal welfare generally, cruelty to animals and the welfare of farmyard animals,...

Business of the House (16 Sep 2021)

Sir David Amess: While trying to mask my disappointment at not being made Minister with responsibility for granting city status to Southend, but being put in charge of paperclips instead, may I ask my right hon. Friend to find time for a debate on discretionary increases in pensions for Ford employees pre-1997? These women and men gave a great deal of their time to the company and they deserve better...

East Midlands Economy — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Sep 2021)

Sir David Amess: Colleagues, if you want to make a speech, keep bobbing up and down as we once did. If you came here only to make an intervention, that is fine, but you must stay until the end of the debate at 11 o’clock. There is no Scottish National party contribution today. The Minister and the shadow Minister will take about 10 minutes each. We have worked out that if everyone speaks for four or five...

East Midlands Economy — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Sep 2021)

Sir David Amess: Colleagues, I realise that we have not done things in person for a very long time, so everyone is rusty and not everyone will be aware of the procedures. This is not a pointed dig at the proposer of the debate, but please do ensure that you get here in good time. There are no longer any call lists; if you want to speak in a debate, drop the Chair a note beforehand. However, I will still call...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: Before the House adjourns for the summer recess, I wish to raise a number of points. There should be no disparity in care costs between private self-payers and council-placed residents. No one should have to give up their family home to pay for care. Political parties should agree on a way forward. Too often, new housing developments do not allow for the immediate accompanying infrastructure...

Business of the House (22 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: I echo your words, Mr Speaker, but very much include you and your brilliant team in the praise that has been handed out. This is the finest Parliament in the world and that is in no small measure down to the people who run it. I wish everyone a very happy summer. Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate on delays at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, which are having an impact...

Covid-19 Update (22 Jul 2021)

Building Safety Bill (21 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: Since last October, the all-party parliamentary group for fire safety and rescue, which I chair—and I am delighted to see so many of its members participating in the debate—has responded in detail to four Government consultations on various aspects of fire and building safety. A further consultation was launched by the Department for Education on 27 May in relation to the revised fire...

Do Not Attempt Resuscitation Orders: Guidelines (21 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. Does he agree that when a loved one is admitted to hospital or a care home, whatever their age, when DNAR is discussed with their friends or relatives it has to be handled very carefully, because it could be a great shock? Also, was he aware that a former colleague of ours has said, following my raising this subject at business questions...

Housing, communities and local government: Rough Sleeping (19 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: What steps his Department is taking to reduce the number of rough sleepers.

Housing, communities and local government: Rough Sleeping (19 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: And now for something completely different: Southend. Will my hon. Friend join me in congratulating Southend on reducing the level of rough sleeping by nearly 90% since November 2017, which is well above the national average? Local organisations such as HARP and Off the Streets have done a magnificent job under really difficult circumstances, so I urge him and his Department to continue to...

Business of the House (15 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: My right hon. Friend is always welcome to Southend-on-Sea, which is hopefully soon to become a city. Will he find time for a debate on the links between human, animal and environmental health? As we look forward to the easing of lockdown restrictions next week, we cannot overlook the fact that 60% of the emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic. Given that it is likely that the coronavirus...

Sir David Amess: While I wholeheartedly congratulate the Government on the agreements negotiated so far, as the chairman of the all-party parliamentary group for the Maldives, I urge my hon. Friend, following our meeting, to negotiate something that is slightly different, an economic partnership agreement, with the Maldives Government, which would benefit not only our country but the core industry of...

Motor Neurone Disease (Research) — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (12 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: I congratulate the hon. Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Martyn Day) on the way he introduced the debate—I agreed with all his points. I do not have the expertise of the hon. Member for York Central (Rachael Maskell) in this area, but I wish to make a number of points, mainly on behalf of a friend of mine. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence says that most people...
