Business of the House (20 Apr 2017)

David Amess: The right hon. Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Ms Stuart) is wrong: she will be missed by the House. Will my right hon.

Animal Welfare: Easter Adjournment (30 Mar 2017)

David Amess: Before the House adjourns for the Easter recess, I wish to raise a number of points. I shall end with a tribute to two Officers of the House who are retiring today.

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

David Amess: What a relief it is that we are discussing something other than our leaving the European Union. I am absolutely sick to death of hearing about it—and we have another two years to go. The standard by which I judge civilisation is how we treat animals and animal welfare more generally. I have been involved in animal welfare matters ever since I entered the House, so I have heard many of...

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

David Amess: My hon. Friend is right. The situation is lamentable, but I say to my hon. Friend the Member for Tiverton and Honiton that I am unsure how we put that right. We just have to keep on and on with the same message. As part of Project Capone, Hindesight has been monitoring the sales of animals on sites such as Gumtree. Its findings demonstrate the clear need for legislation to address the...

Business of the House (23 Mar 2017)

David Amess: It certainly is good to see the hon. Member for Gateshead (Ian Mearns) back in his place. I am glad that it was a back problem, rather than a heart problem. Will my right hon.

Last week, the North Thames Fisheries Local Action Group was awarded £800,000, which will be spent on further...

Iran’s Influence in the Middle East — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (22 Mar 2017)

David Amess: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hendon (Dr Offord) on securing this debate. It was well worth waiting two weeks to hear his splendid speech. I agree with every word he said. He made all the points that I wished to make, so I shall now speak for the sake of it. This is a very well attended debate—there are representatives here from all political parties. I say to my hon....

Iran’s Influence in the Middle East — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (22 Mar 2017)

David Amess: The hon. Gentleman makes that point far better than I ever could, and I hope that the Minister, if we give him enough time, will comment on it. I shall raise a constituency case. Mrs Ratcliffe, a charity worker accused of security offences, was detained while trying to leave Iran with her baby daughter after visiting relatives last year. She was accused of plotting to topple the Government...

Friend join me in congratulating the Central Training Group’s Central Hairdressing Academy in Southend on its support of apprenticeships and its excellent results, and will he reflect on the view that trainers feel that a lot of pressure is put on children to stay on in the sixth form who might benefit from taking an apprenticeship?

Royal Assent: Business of the House (16 Mar 2017)
