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...

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...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (10th Day) (Continued): Amendment 292E (22 Nov 2021)

Lord Touhig: My Lords, that was one of the most powerful statements I have heard in this House, coming from someone who knows what it is like to suffer.

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: New Clause 7 - Prohibition of Sow farrowing stalls (18 Nov 2021)

Daniel Zeichner: ...—including, 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. However, I am also mindful of the...

Baroness Fox of Buckley: ...when actually many Muslims are worried about Islamist extremism. We need more open debate, because there is a feeling that we are not able to have that discussion.

Terrorist Incident at Liverpool Women’s Hospital (16 Nov 2021)

Kit Malthouse: ...know that a number of data points are pulled in for that independent assessment, but this decision was made in the light of the two recent incidents—the death, sadly, the awful killing, of Sir David Amess, and this incident—combined in the round with other information gathered by JTAC. The online world of radicalisation is of course one of the areas that JTAC examines, but I think that...

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. The Government takes extremely seriously the safety and security of Members of Parliament. The Home Office works closely with Parliament and the Police on the safety and security of Members, who are able to access a range of robust measures under Operation Bridger. As...

Committee on Standards: Decision of the House (8 Nov 2021)

Aaron Bell: ...more besides, including some outside this Chamber. 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. I recognise that cross-party trust on standards was badly broken last Wednesday, but I hope for all our sakes that the damage can be repaired as soon as possible.
