Matt Vickers: ...for Rutherglen and Hamilton West (Margaret Ferrier) spoke of the great interest shown by her constituents in the subject, and of their love of animals.

My right hon. Friend the Member for...

Grenfell Tower: Fifth Anniversary (16 Jun 2022)

Margaret Ferrier: ...rescue raised concerns in this area for years with a number of Ministers, but they fell on deaf ears. I take this opportunity to pay tribute to our late colleague and chair of the APPG Sir David Amess, who was a vocal advocate for fire safety and championed the cause regularly in this Chamber.

Peter Bone: ...of the dreadful murder of Jo Cox, who I remember as a happy young Labour MP who was clearly going to make a mark on this place—I also think, of course, of the loss of my dear friend David Amess—I thought it might be helpful to the House if I read out an email that I got yesterday: “Hi, Just wanted to say something to you Peter. YOU ARE AN ODIOUS”— the next word begins with F, and...

Government Policy on Syria (15 Jun 2022)

Amanda Milling: ...to the legacy of Jo Cox and her commitment to the people of Syria, noting, as the hon. Member mentioned, that it is the anniversary of her horrific murder tomorrow and the fact that Sir David Amess chaired the last debate on this subject. As she said, they are both sorely missed by this House. Bashar al-Assad and his allies, including Russia, have inflicted terrible suffering on Syrians...

Social Housing and Building Safety (9 Jun 2022)

Lisa Nandy: ...in south London, where six people lost their lives. In those intervening decades, the alarm was raised many times. One parliamentary inquiry led by the former Member for Southend West, David Amess, who is much missed in all parts of this House, warned that it should not “take a serious fire in which many people are killed before all reasonable steps are taken towards minimising the...

National Security Bill (6 Jun 2022)

Priti Patel: ...and sadly, as we all know only too well, we face home-grown threats as well. Last year, each and every one of us in the House was shattered by the murder of our dear colleague and friend Sir David Amess. We know that the nature of the threats we face is changing. We must protect our country from the old challenges, but also confront the new ones. We have seen in the last year alone how...

Safe Hands Funeral Plans (12 May 2022)

John Glen: ...), and I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough (Andrew Jones) for raising his constituent’s case. I take this opportunity to remember our former colleague Sir David Amess.

Preventing Crime and Delivering Justice (11 May 2022)

Priti Patel: ...last year would have been a disaster, had it not been for the incredible quick thinking and courage of the taxi driver involved on the scene. The terrible murder of our dear friend Sir David Amess was shocking, but not without precedent. We have worked closely together, Mr Speaker, to tighten security for Members, and we will continue to do so, and this Government will continue to work...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

Matt Western: ...) back in her place earlier, and to hear the very good maiden speech by the new hon. Member for Southend West (Anna Firth). We have been reminded of the three good colleagues we have lost: David Amess, James Brokenshire, whose memorial service took place yesterday, and, of course, our own Jack Dromey. They are all missed. I intended to say a few words about the Prime Minister, but I will...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion for an Humble Address (10 May 2022)

Baroness Evans of Bowes Park: ...that we are, I am afraid, once again in turbulent times. The past year has been challenging for our parliamentary community in many ways. I will take a moment to particularly remember Sir David Amess MP, who died serving his constituents. A veteran parliamentarian of almost four decades, he was admired across both Houses for his good humour, kindness and dedication to public service. I...

Emergency Services: Ministers of Religion - Question (26 Apr 2022)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend and the Government on taking action on this delicate matter, which came to prominent attention at the time of the tragic murder of Sir David Amess. I welcome the new guidance. It recognises explicitly the convention rights of both the dying and their families in these emergency crime scenes. But it remains, as my noble friend says, entirely an...

Online Safety Bill (19 Apr 2022)

Mark Francois: My right hon. Friend will know that, last Wednesday, the man who murdered our great friend Sir David Amess was sentenced to a whole-life term. David felt very strongly that we need legislation to protect MPs, particularly female MPs, from vile misogynistic abuse. In his memory, will she assure me that her Bill will honour the spirit of that request?

Easter Adjournment (31 Mar 2022)

Mark Spencer: ...I have probably less than a minute per contribution, but I will of course do my very best to get through as much as I can. I cannot really proceed any further without making reference to Sir David Amess. A number of speeches today have made reference to David’s past contributions in this debate and the fact that we should refer to the summer recess debate as the David Amess debate....

Priti Patel: ...to substantial down from severe. Whilst positive, the security landscape remains complex, volatile and unpredictable as the attack outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital and the killing of Sir David Amess sadly reminds us. The Home Office continues in its efforts, working with operational partners, to build improvements into the UK’s counter-terrorism response. Enabling the legitimate...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (24 Mar 2022)

Friend the Member for Southend West (Anna Firth), who is keen to support the bid for 2029. We have just announced the final four for 2025.

Commonwealth Day — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (15 Mar 2022)

Amanda Milling: ...Chamber, and I will do my best to deal with the points they have made, but I want to begin by mentioning one colleague who has been sorely missed during today’s debate: our dear friend, Sir David Amess. Sir David was a passionate advocate for the Commonwealth, and he took part in last year’s debate with his customary good humour, insight and conviction. As Minister for Asia, I had the...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Coastal Communities (10 Mar 2022)

Rebecca Pow: ...my hon. Friend for that question and welcome her to her seat. How wonderful that she has chosen DEFRA orals to ask her first question. That is very fitting, because I think the wonderful Sir David Amess never missed DEFRA questions. She is going to be a great spokesman for her area on this front. She makes a good case for the importance of keeping our waters healthy. In terms of fishing,...

Rape and Sexual Violence (8 Mar 2022)

Tim Farron: ...girls, angry is that we see precious little action. I am trying to be sensitive in what I say here. In my time as a Member of Parliament, we have lost two precious colleagues in Jo Cox and David Amess, and we grieve them and miss them. The response of the authorities, the security services and the police to those horrific murders was to strengthen our security; we see police turning up at...

Health and Social Care: Kettering General Hospital (1 Mar 2022)

Edward Argar: ...visit my hon. Friend’s constituency. He is a forceful advocate for that constituency and for his hospital, as indeed—if I may slightly crave your indulgence, Mr Speaker—was the late Sir David Amess. Today is the day that Southend-on-Sea officially becomes a city, so I just wanted to shoehorn that into the record. On my hon. Friend’s point, we will do everything we can to expedite...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: After Clause 54 - Accountability of public authorities: duties on police workforce (28 Feb 2022)

Kit Malthouse: .... I am sure that all hon. Members will recall vividly how proceedings in St Margaret’s church were intruded on by protesters’ noise when we were paying our respects to our colleague Sir David Amess. I am not sure we could call that intrusion damaging; if anything, it made us sing all the loudly and filled the church with an air of defiance as we mourned. However, we have to reflect on...
