Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Schedule 1 (19 Oct 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: ...the tragic loss of Sir David Amess. He was a fellow Essex MP to me and my hon. Friend the Member for Castle Point. He was a truly beloved friend and colleague who served both Parliament and Southend West for nearly four decades with dedication and care. It is particularly poignant that we should be debating the Elections Bill at this point. The act of violence that occurred on Friday was...

Health and Social Care: New Hospital in Doncaster (19 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: ...Amess. The last time I saw David was a few weeks ago, when he posed for a photo that he wanted with me and then tried to impress on me the question of whether I would come to the wonderful town of Southend.

Tributes to Sir David Amess (18 Oct 2021)

Mark Menzies: May I begin by sending my condolences and prayers to David’s wife, Julia, and his five children? Not only did Sir David represent the people of Southend West, being a dedicated campaigner on a broad range of issues and achieving some real meaningful changes, but he spent a great deal of time representing this House on overseas delegations. That is what I want to focus on this afternoon. Sir...

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

Lord Moynihan: ...friend and colleague to so many of us. At the end, he was doing what he loved best and what he was brilliant at: helping his constituents, and not least realising his long-standing ambition that Southend, for which he long campaigned, should be a city, both on earth and, God willing, in heaven.

Home Department: Violence against Women and Girls (18 Oct 2021)

Laura Farris: I also extend my deepest sympathies to the families of Sir David Amess and James Brokenshire. Southend has lost two sons and we have lost two very special parliamentary colleagues. I would like to recognise the work that my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary has been doing over the past few, very challenging weeks, which have had damaging implications for the relationship between the police...

Home Department: Topical Questions (18 Oct 2021)

Priti Patel: ...causes he supported were diverse, with so many relating to people and, of course, his much-loved animals. Many sittings in this House were enlivened, Mr Speaker, by his calls for city status for Southend. [Hon. Members: “Hear, hear!”] It is agonising to know that we will not see his wonderful smile again. It took no effort on David’s part to conduct the business of politics in a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matters of the Day: Sir David Amess MP (18 Oct 2021)

John Blair: ...him as a dedicated parliamentarian, a real gentleman, a considerate person and one who devoted time to help others who were new to Parliament or to politics. He was clearly firmly committed to his Southend West constituents and passionate about various causes, including animal welfare. It would be remiss of me, as chair of the all-party group on animal welfare, not to mention that. As a...

Speaker’s Statement: Deaths of Members (18 Oct 2021)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...The Speaker’s Chaplain, the Venerable Patricia Hillas, invited Members to rise and said the following: We keep a moment of remembrance and respect, honouring Sir David Amess, the hon. Member for Southend West, colleague and friend. May the bright memory of his rich life ever outshine the tragic manner of his death. Let us keep silence. The House observed a one-minute silence.

Backbench Business: Violence against Christians: Central African Countries — [Rushanara Ali in the Chair] (23 Sep 2021)

Vicky Ford: ...such an important debate. I commend him for his tireless work in defending freedom of religion and belief. I thank my predecessor as Minister for Africa, my hon. Friend the Member for Rochford and Southend East (James Duddridge). He worked tirelessly to build strong relationships across Africa and put great effort into promoting this cause during his time in the role. I am absolutely...

Business of the House (16 Sep 2021)

Sir David Amess: While trying to mask my disappointment at not being made Minister with responsibility for granting city status to Southend, but being put in charge of paperclips instead, may I ask my right hon. Friend to find time for a debate on discretionary increases in pensions for Ford employees pre-1997? These women and men gave a great deal of their time to the company and they deserve better...

Withdrawal from Afghanistan: Joint Committee (15 Sep 2021)

Thomas Tugendhat: ...Foreign Secretary asking for a list of all phone calls. I am sure that the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, my hon. Friend the Member for Rochford and Southend East (James Duddridge), will be giving us the information for which we ask. We have asked for the contacts between the Government and other people, and for any number of documents, in...

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink (1 Sep 2021)

Jenni Minto: ...of Argyll and Bute in their processes. The water, the botanicals and the peat all enhance their flavour and, with the stunning scenery, where better to raise a toast? There is coffee and cake from Southend to Dalmally in phone boxes, cafes and horse boxes—we find a lot of uses for horse boxes in Argyll—where people can find wonderful home baking, to be washed down with a mug of Tiree...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2021)

Stuart Andrew: ...a tour of the United Kingdom, but we learn a great deal about a range of issues, raised by Members from both sides of the House. Nevertheless, the medal still goes to my hon. Friend the Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess), who managed to raise 15 issues in three minutes. That is quite an achievement. The SNP spokesman, the hon. Member for Glasgow South West (Chris Stephens),...

Covid-19 Update (22 Jul 2021)

Steve McCabe: Further to the question from the hon. Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess), what does the Minister suggest that a constituent of mine who has had the Indian-manufactured Covishield jab should do if they are planning to travel to Portugal or Italy in the next two weeks?

Building Safety Bill (21 Jul 2021)

Peter Aldous: ...what has been done to promote the greater use of sprinklers? In previous Parliaments, we have had good debates, ably led by our former colleague, Jim Fitzpatrick, and my hon. Friend the Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess), but nothing has been achieved. In fact, we are going backwards, as the Government are proposing changes to the “Building Bulletin 100: Design for fire safety...

Housing, communities and local government: Rough Sleeping (19 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: And now for something completely different: Southend. Will my hon. Friend join me in congratulating Southend on reducing the level of rough sleeping by nearly 90% since November 2017, which is well above the national average? Local organisations such as HARP and Off the Streets have done a magnificent job under really difficult circumstances, so I urge him and his Department to continue to...

Business of the House (15 Jul 2021)

Sir David Amess: My right hon. Friend is always welcome to Southend-on-Sea, which is hopefully soon to become a city. Will he find time for a debate on the links between human, animal and environmental health? As we look forward to the easing of lockdown restrictions next week, we cannot overlook the fact that 60% of the emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic. Given that it is likely that the coronavirus...
