High Speed 1: Rolling Stock: Motorhomes and Vehicle Excise Duty — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Jan 2020)

Sir David Amess: Order. I sense that there is some confusion about this debate. It is a half-hour debate. The sponsor of the motion speaks and then the Minister replies. It is for other Members to intervene. Unless permission is obtained, the debate is not for other Members to make separate speeches. There are still many Members here who have attended because they are interested in the matter, but it is...

Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Jan 2020)

Sir David Amess: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on his endeavours to get Brexit done, but, as he knows only too well, something else needs to be got done. In an exchange with me on 25 July, he said that Southend would become a city. Before all that happens, however, will he join me in thanking the religious orders of Nazareth House in Southend for caring for vulnerable people for 147 years, and will he...

Southend: City Status (20 Dec 2019)

Sir David Amess: For a moment, I was tempted to say, “Before the House adjourns for the Christmas recess, there are a number of points that I wish to raise,” but we have a title for this Adjournment debate. The House will not be surprised to hear that I am going to describe how, as the Prime Minister said just six weeks ago, Southend will become a city. Before that, I want to mention three newly elected...

Southend: City Status (20 Dec 2019)

Sir David Amess: I thank the hon. Gentleman, whom I regard as my friend, for his support. Let me run through the list of reasons why Southend should become a city. First, there is the Music Man Project, which was the inspiration of David Stanley. He did not leave people with learning difficulties just to be looked after. He has absolutely transformed their lives through the power of music. The House can...

Southend: City Status (20 Dec 2019)

Sir David Amess: What a brilliant idea. I was not expecting that Christmas present. I thank the hon. Member very much indeed for his suggestion. I know that the House has become tired of hearing me ask for city status for Southend—[Interruption.]—a little weary—but I am not going to shut up until it happens, so someone must stand up at that Dispatch Box and tell me when the competition will begin. I...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Sir David Amess: I rise to speak in support of the Gracious Address. I begin by congratulating the proposer and seconder of the Humble Address. It is a huge honour to be chosen for either position. My hon. Friend the Member for Chatham and Aylesford (Tracey Crouch), who is a very popular colleague, did not disappoint the House. Her speech was first class. Our hon. Friend the Member for Walsall North (Eddie...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Sir David Amess: I am sorry, but I did. I did not want an election to take place two weeks before Christmas. I did more than 100 canvassing sessions in the wet and the cold, tripping up steps at night, holding a handkerchief in one hand because of a cold. I found it depressing, although obviously I am thrilled to bits by the result. Thinking of the detail of the campaign, it seems to me that in my...

Tributes to the Speaker (31 Oct 2019)

Sir David Amess: I am disappointed that I am not able to put my question to the Leader of the House regarding the lack of funding from the national lottery for Southend West and the lousy ticket machines installed by c2c, but I will get over that. The House is at its best when we are being nice to one another. This will not last, as we are about to embark upon a general election campaign. Mr Speaker, you and...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

Sir David Amess: I commend my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on the content and tone of his speech. I was appalled that this report was leaked two days in advance, and I was extremely worried that the fire brigade would be used as an excuse and blamed. That is quite wrong. I spoke to the fire brigade and found that it has dealt with internal learning and improvement, predetermined attendance, new...

Endometriosis Workplace Support (29 Oct 2019)

Sir David Amess: That was a brave speech by the hon. Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Louise Haigh). I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Elmet and Rothwell (Alec Shelbrooke) on introducing the debate. Since the BBC covered this subject on 7 October, many of our constituents have raised issues with us. I will not repeat them all; I will just pay tribute to Carla Cressy, a local constituent who...

Endometriosis Workplace Support (29 Oct 2019)

Sir David Amess: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend. We might ask his trust to come and give evidence to our inquiry. A great service has been done in initiating this debate. It means that we are able to talk about the issue and encourage sufferers. We have heard that one of our own is suffering immensely from this disease at the moment, but our all-party group’s inquiry will make sure that we do far...

Health and Social Care: PrEP (29 Oct 2019)

Sir David Amess: Speak for Romford!

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (29 Oct 2019)

Sir David Amess: Does my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State share my concern that a highly paid health executive has been made redundant by Southend clinical commissioning group, given £200,000 and then employed somewhere else in the organisation? Disgraceful.
