Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 47 - Commencement and transitional provision (23 Nov 2021)

Marco Longhi: Further to that point of order, Mr Rosindell. I echo the previous comments. As a member of the new intake, I had the good fortune of having an office on the same floor as Sir David Amess in 1 Parliament Street. As the lift doors open, his office door is immediately in front. It has been a terrible sadness, as you can well imagine, every time I have seen that door with a candle lit in front of...

Daniel Zeichner: ..., it would seem, the Prime Minister, who claimed in the Chamber that as a result of Brexit, we would be now able to introduce such a ban. The issue was very close to the heart of Sir David Amess, who earlier this year brought forward a private Member’s Bill, the Pig Husbandry (Farrowing) Bill, that sought to ban the use of farrowing crates.

Written Answers — Home Office: Members: Security (11 Nov 2021)

Damian Hinds: The killing of Sir David Amess at his Essex surgery was a shocking, abhorrent crime and a senseless attack on our democracy.

Friendship, especially cross party, is needed more than ever in this place, particularly in the light of the terrible murder of our colleague Sir David Amess.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence publishes authoritative evidence-based guidelines for...

Business of the House (28 Oct 2021)

Kieran Mullan: As a Member new to the House, I did not know Sir David Amess for as long as others, but when we worked together on the all-party parliamentary group on fire safety and rescue, I got to experience the warmth and kindness that others have talked about. After his tragic killing, I saw that he used to hold an annual tea party for 100-year-olds in his constituency; I am going to try to do the...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Untreated Sewage: Discharge into Waterways (28 Oct 2021)

Rebecca Pow: ...that a lot of what we have heard in the social media storm has been whipped up, and there are a great many untruths flying around. We all spoke last week, after all the tributes to dear Sir David Amess, about a better form of government that is more respectful. Actually, I would like us to pick that up, because a lot of people have not seen it over this issue. The amendment, as it was...
