Northern Ireland Assembly: Matters of the Day: Dennis Hutchings (19 Oct 2021)

Paula Bradshaw: them. One issue that we should continue to treat seriously together is the deadly virus. We must ensure that we take responsibility for protecting our most vulnerable.

Let us never recreate such a grotesque conflict.

Tributes to Sir David Amess (18 Oct 2021)

Rupa Huq: I rise to speak about the brutal killing of our friend, David Amess. I know that we have an adversarial workplace here—we have a face-off—but some of our best friends are often on the other side. I know that when I have been in a hole, it is people on the Conservative Benches who have helped me out and been friendly to me. This killing was all the more shocking and painful to me because I...

Tributes: Sir David Amess MP - Tributes (18 Oct 2021)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: My Lords, as time is short, I will not say very much about David. So much has been said already. We both entered the House of Commons on the same day, along with my noble friend Lord Howard. David served for 38 years; I lasted 14 before I was asked to leave. I am grateful for that in some ways, because I missed the cesspit that is social media. I used Twitter for about three months, but that...

Home Department: Prevention of Illegal Protests (18 Oct 2021)

Chris Bryant: Of course, I also pay tribute to Sir David Amess. I never managed to persuade him to support gay marriage, but he always asked after my husband. I think that was the character of the man. The difficulty is in judging the boundary between legal and illegal protests, because some people who protest online think vile abuse is perfectly justifiable. We seem to have developed a toxic way of doing...
