Reopening Local Police Stations — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (27 Oct 2021)

Sarah Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Ms Fovargue. I congratulate the hon. Member for South Dorset (Richard Drax) on securing this important debate. We are all still mourning the loss of David Amess, who was a friend and colleague to many in this place. I have thought, following his death, of the police officers who would have had to be some of the first people on the scene to...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Urban Areas: Royal Charters (27 Oct 2021)

Lord True: civic-honours-competition. On Monday 18 October, the Prime Minister announced that Southend-on-Sea would be accorded city status in honour of Sir David Amess. This was made in exceptional circumstances and outside of the ongoing competition.

Northern Ireland (Ministers, Elections and Petitions of Concern) Bill: New Clause 1 - Appointment of First Minister and Deputy First Minister (26 Oct 2021)

Conor Burns: ...Ireland Office. There were some letters on my desk that were addressed as personal. I opened one to find it was a letter congratulating me on returning to Government from our late colleague Sir David Amess. I would just like to place on record my tribute to David. I knew him well. We served together on the all-party parliamentary group on the Holy See and had very many enjoyable trips to...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Clause 26 - Disqualification orders (26 Oct 2021)

Cat Smith: ...are intimidated, and many candidates of our party have experienced intimidation and threats. It is devastating that we should be debating this clause so soon after the murder of our colleague, Sir David Amess, who was on the Panel of Chairs and chaired many debates on issues like this. I must be honest: I did not expect when I stood for election in 2015 that I would lose two colleagues to...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (26 Oct 2021)

...Parliament, it is a great honour for me to address you this afternoon and I am grateful for this opportunity. The tragic event of 15 October 2021 in Essex is very much alive in our minds. Sir David Amess, member of Parliament for Southend West, was stabbed to death in a church, during a constituency surgery. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, staff, friends, constituents and...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill (25 Oct 2021)

Daniel Zeichner: May I start by echoing all the warm tributes to Sir David Amess? My office in 1 Parliament Street is very close to his. We often spoke in the lift and came over to vote together. We had different political views, but what a lovely fellow. Like everyone, I miss him very, very much. If anyone is running a book on the Westminster dog of the year competition, close it now, given the number of...

Animal Testing — [Julie Elliott in the Chair] (25 Oct 2021)

George Freeman: ..., that I take this issue very seriously, and I will explain my background in the sector. I echo the comments made by a number of Opposition colleagues: if we are to provide a legacy for Sir David Amess, we ought to come together on this issue. I welcome the tone of everybody’s contributions, in particular that of the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Newport West (Ruth Jones), which...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Building Safety (25 Oct 2021)

Lucy Powell: First, let me pay my respects to Sir David Amess. He was a tireless campaigner for building and fire safety, chairing the exceptional all-party parliamentary group on the subject. I last met him only a few weeks ago to discuss the omissions in the Building Safety Bill. His loss will be greatly felt in these crunch weeks of the Bill’s passage. I also welcome the new Secretary of State to his...

World Menopause Month (21 Oct 2021)

Nigel Evans: They don’t come more fabulous than you, Carolyn. Congratulations to everyone on taking part in the debate. I am really pleased that Sir David Amess was mentioned today. I am absolutely certain that, had the tragedy not happened, he would have been here today cheering you all on. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House has considered World Menopause Month.

Integrity of Electoral Processes - Question for Short Debate (21 Oct 2021)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, at the outset, I want to pay tribute from my own personal experience to Sir David Amess. He was a truly honourable Member, and I appreciate enormously his family’s call for more co-operation and working together. That is something I have tried to do throughout my 30 years in this Parliament. It is perhaps sad but necessary to start by taking note of the deterioration in the public...

Business of the House (21 Oct 2021)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ..., considering what once happened, the House will not be sitting. May I, at the end of my statement, Madam Deputy Speaker, by your leave, add words of tribute to our hon. and right hon. Friends, Sir David Amess and James Brokenshire? They have had tributes paid to them already, but they are so sadly missed by this House. David Amess was one of the most regular contributors to business...

International Trade: Trade Deals: Human Rights (21 Oct 2021)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: I and my whole team would like to associate ourselves with the tributes to Sir David Amess that have been made this week. He was listed on the Order Paper for today’s oral questions and I have no doubt that he would have championed the export opportunities for Southend, our newest city. The Government are clear that more trade will not come at the expense of human rights. The UK will...

International Trade: British Farmers: Global Exports (21 Oct 2021)

Emily Thornberry: Let me begin by welcoming the Secretary of State to her new role. May I associate myself with the remarks that she made about the late David Amess. He was an enthusiastic and lively participant in International Trade questions, as he was with everything that he turned his mind to. I also look forward to studying the Secretary of State’s response to the Trade and Agriculture Commission...

International Trade: Trade Envoys (21 Oct 2021)

Drew Hendry: I also welcome the ministerial team to their place, and I echo the comments over the tragic loss of our parliamentary friend and colleague, Sir David Amess. It was a senseless act. Far from promoting Scottish exports, new documents from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs show that for the period ending June 2021, Scottish exports had decreased by 14% from the previous year. That is not a...

International Trade: Topical Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Kerry McCarthy: Sir David Amess was due to ask a question today and I suspect that, as chair of the all-party British-Maldives parliamentary group, he would have reiterated previous questions about support for the very sustainable fishing industry there. As part of the all-party group on small island developing states, which includes the Maldives, I therefore feel honour-bound to pursue that cause on his...

Security Update (20 Oct 2021)

Priti Patel: ..., as well for as his question. This has been a sombre week for all of us in this House —it really has. We have lost colleagues through the most appalling attacks, first Jo Cox, and then Sir David Amess. It is not for us to be publicly discussing security measures at all. As the House has already heard me say, I urge all hon. Members, for the sake of protecting the public, our staff and...

Environment Bill: Before Clause 1 - Purpose and declaration of biodiversity and climate emergency (20 Oct 2021)

Nigel Evans: I thank the hon. Lady for her earlier comments about Sir David Amess and James Brokenshire. I have not had an opportunity to say anything, but in my 29 and a half years in politics, this has been one of the toughest weeks for Parliament. I know we will all miss both Sir David and James, as we loved them so dearly. Thank you for your comments—I appreciate that.

Access to Cash — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (20 Oct 2021)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...considered access to cash. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mrs Miller. Given recent events, I feel it is important to take a moment to pay tribute to our wonderful colleague, Sir David Amess, who was a regular contributor to Westminster Hall debates. His presence here will forever be missed. I am pleased to have secured this debate, particularly as our ability to physically...

Speaker's Statement: James Brokenshire (20 Oct 2021)

David Mundell: ...the period that he was so grateful for; he wanted to convey that and said it had sustained him in some of the most difficult times. The final point I want to make is that I was actually with Sir David Amess in Qatar when we heard the news of James’s passing. David really was very upset by that news and was effusive in his tributes to James. I am sure that if he had been in the Chamber...
