Public Bill Committee: Glue Traps (Offences) Bill: Clause 1 - Offences relating to glue traps in England (19 Jan 2022)

Jane Stevenson: ...of Birds and Animal Aid. I have a special word for the Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation; I spoke about this Bill at its event at our party conference, and speaking at the same event was Sir David Amess, who was such a champion of animal welfare. He will be hugely missed by those who support the cause of animal welfare, and it is for all of us to continue his amazing legacy. I thank...

Elections Bill: New Clause 11 - Power to make regulations about registration, absent voting and other matters (17 Jan 2022)

Luke Evans: ...puts off candidates. We know that it makes everyone think twice. Unfortunately, we have seen in recent times what this can do, with the sad and most harrowing death of one of our colleagues, Sir David Amess. Safety is really important, so I tabled the amendment with a simple idea. Rather than having someone’s full address or the constituency in which they live, there might be a halfway...

Building Safety (10 Jan 2022)

Peter Bottomley: ...Member for Camberwell and Peckham (Ms Harman), that the tributes to her husband Jack Dromey for his work on people’s interests at work and at home will be long remembered, together with that of David Amess, who for 20 years worked on the all-party group on fire safety and rescue with Ronnie King and others? I believe that this is another step forward that is greatly welcomed and greatly...

Energy Costs - Question for Short Debate (6 Jan 2022)

Lord Oates: ...s energy-efficiency targets for homes, by placing them in legislation and requiring annual reports on progress provided to Parliament? A very similar Bill was proposed in another place by the late David Amess. It would be a fitting tribute to his memory if the Government would now implement this in law. I will avoid being provoked into an intemperate response to the curious comments of the...

Backbench Business - Christmas AdjournmentBackbench Business (16 Dec 2021)

Stuart Andrew: great to hear people talk so passionately about their constituencies. However, as others have said, something just is not the same this year: we have all rightly remembered our late friend Sir David Amess. I was always struck, as were others, by the speed at which he would give his speech, and not only because when I tried to list some of the things on which he needed responses, it was...

Neighbourhood Policing: West Midlands (14 Dec 2021)

Khalid Mahmood: ...been fantastic. If I tell him where I am holding surgeries, he tries his best to support me. We all have to think about our position and our safety, particularly since the tragic incident of Sir David Amess. That is an additional requirement for the police. More issues are being added to the list for the police to address. There are also issues within the policing structure. The Home...

Maldives: Tariffs - Question (14 Dec 2021)

Viscount Waverley: Remembering that principle not size should govern the Government’s thinking if possible—and remembering, with deep appreciation, Sir David Amess taking a great interest in this subject and inviting me to join him for a meeting with a UK Minister—surely the ability to offer zero tariffs is one of the really meaningful ways to best assist the emerging markets. Could I encourage the...

Freedom of Speech - Motion to Take Note (10 Dec 2021)

Baroness Featherstone: ...right from wrong, believe in public service and have a basic desire to use their time and energy for the betterment of the human race. Sadly, we had the recent example of the appalling murder of David Amess. Only then, the truth surfaced: that he was a brilliant constituency MP and much loved. Good news does not sell, but the media and us— well, apparently, we all prefer hate, aided and...

Sickle Cell Treatment — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (8 Dec 2021)

Greg Clark: ...leadership of the APPG. I agreed with every word that he said. He is right that this issue should unite Members in all parties. I have the honour to have recently replaced our very good friend, Sir David Amess, as the Conservative officer of the APPG; I do so with pride. It is a great responsibility and I look to continue the formidable work that Sir David did for this very important...

Afghanistan - Question for Short Debate (2 Dec 2021)

Lord Moynihan: ...have come out of Afghanistan and routed through Doha. In so doing, I declare my interest as a vice-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Qatar, until recently so ably led by the late Sir David Amess. Two months ago, with Sir David, I saw at first hand the outstanding work being undertaken by the Government of Qatar and the international agencies and charities that are seeking to...

Community Energy Schemes — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (30 Nov 2021)

Jim Shannon: many have turned up is an indication of the interest in the topic. I spoke in the Westminster Hall debate on enabling community energy that she secured in July, which was chaired by the late Sir David Amess, and I am pleased to be back here to reiterate the benefits of community energy schemes. I thank all right hon. and hon. Members for their contributions, whether interventions or...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Prevent in London: Prevent in London (29 Nov 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Terrorism remains a significant threat to our society, as the tragic murder of Sir David Amess MP and the explosion outside the Liverpool Women’s Hospital this week have shown. The pandemic left people more isolated and spending increased amounts of time online, and extremists have used this opportunity to spread their hateful ideologies to those vulnerable to radicalisation. It is more...

Down Syndrome Bill (26 Nov 2021)

Gillian Keegan: .... Members for their contributions, and I have really enjoyed the debate. I, too, have learned a lot, and it is such an important time for such an important debate. I also want to pay tribute to Sir David Amess, who cared deeply about supporting people with learning disabilities. He was arranging for us to have a cup of tea to discuss how we could work together to do this. Sadly, this...

China: Genocide - Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2021)

Lord Shinkwin: My Lords, I, too, pay tribute to both my noble friend Lord Alton of Liverpool, for securing this debate and his good friend the late Sir David Amess, who was a tireless campaigner for and supporter of the charities for which I worked before entering your Lordships’ House. May Sir David always be remembered for his faithful witness to the truth. Ultimately, that is what we are discussing...

Cabinet Office: Civil Service Jobs outside London (25 Nov 2021)

Barry Sheerman: It is on Thursday mornings, Mr Speaker, that those of us who are regulars miss David Amess—those Thursday mornings when he was so lively and showed that he was a true parliamentarian. When the Minister talks about putting jobs in places around the country, will he lead, with all of us in our constituencies, a campaign for sustainable development in every town, city and community in this country?

Islamophobia Awareness Month — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: ...are united here today in our determination to protect people and end discrimination. I would like to use this occasion to remind colleagues about the tragic murder of our colleague and friend, Sir David Amess, whose funeral was yesterday.

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (24 Nov 2021)

Robert Jenrick: times in this country we do not. We have seen, just in the last few weeks, two very serious terrorist incidents. Most deeply we felt, of course, the loss of our friend and former colleague Sir David Amess, and of course we have seen a very serious incident—albeit one that could have been all the more serious—in Liverpool. We do not know, and it is not our role right now to speculate...

Black Friday: Financial Products — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Nov 2021)

John Glen: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I associate myself with the remarks of a number of Members this afternoon concerning the death of Sir David Amess. He was a true blessing to this Parliament and a great character whom we all loved, and he will be sadly missed. I have listened carefully to the various contributions this afternoon. As ever, this has been a very...
