Business of the House (21 Oct 2021)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ..., child sexual exploitation, do-not-attempt-resuscitation orders, zoonotic diseases, discretionary pension increases, endometriosis, animal welfare, a memorial to Dame Vera Lynn, and, obviously, Southend city status. Everybody adored David because he was such a champion of democratic rights for his constituents, but he did it all with such courtesy. However much he might have been trying...

International Trade: Trade Deals: Human Rights (21 Oct 2021)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: Sir David Amess that have been made this week. He was listed on the Order Paper for today’s oral questions and I have no doubt that he would have championed the export opportunities for Southend, our newest city. The Government are clear that more trade will not come at the expense of human rights. The UK will continue to show global leadership in encouraging all states to uphold...

Environment Bill: After Clause 72 - Protection of pollinators from pesticides (20 Oct 2021)

Luke Pollard: ...and thoughts on behalf of Plymouth to Sir David Amess’s family, his staff and his community. We have seen our fair share of tragedy over the summer in Plymouth, and Plymouth stands with Southend at this time. We are in the middle of a climate and ecological crisis, and we need bolder and more urgent action if we are to address it. When this Bill was first debated in the Commons—which...

Environment Bill: Before Clause 1 - Purpose and declaration of biodiversity and climate emergency (20 Oct 2021)

Ruth Jones: ...David Amess. I was not able to speak in the tributes on Monday, but I do want to place on record my sorrow and send my prayers and thoughts to Sir David’s family, to his staff in the House and in Southend, and to his constituents. I also want to extend condolences to the family, staff and constituents of the late James Brokenshire, whose passing was untimely and very sad indeed. Both...

Access to Cash — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (20 Oct 2021)

Paul Maynard: ..., looking at what will best address the challenges that we face. The main project they have identified is called a shared banking hub. There is one in Cambuslang in Scotland and one not far from Southend, if it is worth observing, in Rochford. Both of those have worked extremely well. Banks have come together, shared premises and the consumers have loved it. It has moved the debate on from...

Speaker's Statement: James Brokenshire (20 Oct 2021)

Mike Penning: ...Parliament. James was a wonderful human being and he was a family man. We invariably talked about family things on the way home. I knew that I would have to move my daughters out of their school in Southend to my new constituency in Hemel Hempstead, and he talked to me about how difficult that was going to be for me. I apologise to Cathy: we sat outside your house many a time when I was...

Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Oct 2021)

Virendra Sharma: I join colleagues in paying tribute to the former hon. Member for Southend West. He was a good friend and an esteemed parliamentarian. I also wish to pay tribute to the former right hon. Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup. He served this House and the country assiduously, and will be missed by Members across the House. Heating bills, food shops and fuel costs are all rising at a staggering...

Backbench Business: Post Office Closures — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (19 Oct 2021)

Chi Onwurah: ...for Hammersmith (Andy Slaughter) said, this is the kind of debate that Sir David would have truly appreciated. I am sure that there would have been a reason why post office closures showed that Southend needed to be a city, and I am so glad that that is to be realised. This is also the sort of debate that he would have appreciated because Members on all sides have conducted it with...

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...

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...
