Sir David Amess: Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate on the stress and anxiety caused by scam telephone calls and emails?

Surely this House could do something to prevent that from continuing to happen.

Southend Hospital (5 Dec 2018)

Sir David Amess: Right.

Southend Hospital (5 Dec 2018)

Sir David Amess: Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate on changing practices in how we buy and sell goods?
