Neil O'Brien: ...-up fund is putting £87 million into a range of different local priorities, with transport upgrades in Bedfordshire, new science facilities in Peterborough, upgrades to the coastal attractions in Southend, and £20 million to help Great Yarmouth to recapitalise on its cultural heritage and the unique strength that it has in green energy.

Health and Care Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 18 (13 Jan 2022)

Baroness Bakewell: ...into the National Health Service by Centene and its subsidiary Operose, which now own 70 surgeries around this country.

It is now the biggest single provider of GP surgeries in this country. It has further...

Business of the House (13 Jan 2022)

Robert Largan: ...with multiple terrorist connections, he was not questioned when he returned from Libya just a few days before the attack. Given that and given similar failures to stop attacks in Liverpool and Southend, can we have an urgent debate on the Prevent strategy and the Government’s wider counter-terrorism strategy? We must not bury our head in the sand.

Backbench Business - Christmas AdjournmentBackbench Business (16 Dec 2021)

Stuart Andrew: ...our staff for the work that they do. David epitomised what I was saying about being a hard-working Member of Parliament. In these debates, he would always finish his speech on the subject of making Southend a city, and that is now happening—there is no greater honour to him. I hear loud and clear the calls for the summer Adjournment debate to be named after him in tribute, and I am sure...

Sickle Cell Treatment — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (8 Dec 2021)

Florence Eshalomi: ...McFadden) for securing this important debate and for his tireless work as the chair of the APPG on sickle cell and thalassaemia. I would also like to reflect on the work of the late hon. Member for Southend West, who was a former officer of the APPG, on sickle cell and to say how much poorer we are today without his contribution, which I know would have been well received by all of us....

Health and Care Bill - Second Reading (7 Dec 2021)

Centene and its British subsidiary Operose now own 70 surgeries around the country, from Leeds to Luton, from Doncaster to Newport Pagnell, from Nottingham to Southend, and in many other areas, Centene/Operose now owns and runs for profit surgeries formerly owned and run by NHS doctors.

Islamophobia Awareness Month — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: act on behalf of Islam. However, if ever people needed reminding of the real values of Muslims in this country, they need look no further than the tributes paid by the Muslim community of Southend to the life of Sir David. His murder could have fanned the flames of fear and resentment, but instead of opening new fault lines between people, it was met with an outpouring of love and good...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 158 (8 Nov 2021)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: times and did not respond to a single penalty notice. In that three months, he managed to rack up a total of 42 points on his driving licence. When he came in front of the magistrates in Southend, what did he say? He said, “If banned, I will lose my job and my home, and I will be unable to pay off my debts”. The second point he made was the clincher. “Since the incident”, he...

Menopause (Support and Services) Bill (29 Oct 2021)

Carolyn Harris: embrace the menopause revolution and have shown themselves to be dedicated menopause warriors. I am sure we would have heard the voice of our dearly missed colleague, the former Member for Southend West, today if it were not for tragic events. I remember him coming to a menopause event I hosted a couple of years ago. When I asked him if he supported the cause, he told me, “With a wife...

Reopening Local Police Stations — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (27 Oct 2021)

Kit Malthouse: ..., interact with local residents and shops, and then move on to the next hotspot. My hon. Friend will be interested to know that some of the early results are showing enormous falls in violence. In Southend we saw a fall of over 70% in violence, and in Bedfordshire there was a fall of 44%. I hope that this approach, which used to be called hotspot policing or cops on dots, will help us know...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Urban Areas: Royal Charters (27 Oct 2021)

Lord True: ..., which closes on 8 December, is published on GOV.UK: civic-honours-competition. On Monday 18 October, the Prime Minister announced that Southend-on-Sea would be accorded city status in honour of Sir David Amess. This was made in exceptional circumstances and outside of the ongoing competition.

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (26 Oct 2021)

...for me to address you this afternoon and I am grateful for this opportunity. The tragic event of 15 October 2021 in Essex is very much alive in our minds. Sir David Amess, member of Parliament for Southend West, was stabbed to death in a church, during a constituency surgery. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, staff, friends, constituents and colleagues. I kindly request that we...

Scottish Parliament: Sir David Amess MP (26 Oct 2021)

Douglas Ross: ...and used it to promote the causes that were closest to him. He achieved far more as a back bencher for 38 years than many ministers will achieve in their entire ministerial career. The fact that Southend will now be a city is a lasting legacy to the campaigning of Sir David Amess. There are many heartbreaking elements to the murder of Sir David, Presiding Officer, but as you and the First...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill (25 Oct 2021)

Victoria Prentis: .... Members will not take it amiss if I say that, in many ways, the most important speech was not made: the one by our hon. Friend who represented the city—[Hon. Members: “Hear, hear!”] —of Southend. I do not think it presumptuous to say that I know what he would have said; after all, he had been saying it for 38 years. I quote from a speech that he gave on live exports in 2012:...

Animal Testing — [Julie Elliott in the Chair] (25 Oct 2021)

Tan Dhesi: ...and warmth. He was someone with an infectious smile, and used that cheeky smile without being reprimanded by Mr Speaker when he somehow squeezed into virtually every single debate the need to make Southend-on-Sea a city. Sir David also did a great deal of work on animal rights. As the hon. Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Martyn Day) mentioned, I am very sure that he would have...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Topical Questions (25 Oct 2021)

Steve Reed: May I associate myself with the comments made about the former Members for Southend West, and for Old Bexley and Sidcup, who are both immensely missed by the whole House? It is a pleasure to welcome the Secretary of State and the new Ministers to their place, and to see older Ministers as well—why not? It has been four months since the deadline for community renewal fund bids. The mid-point...
