Lindsay Hoyle has just drawn attention to the new commemorative shield for Sir David Amess in the Commons:
“Sir David was a dedicated constituency MP. A powerful advocate for Southend-on-Sea, which was granted city status last year in his honour. He was a committed campaigner for the causes he believed in, most notably animal welfare. And a highly respected, valued colleague known to members in all parts of the House for his kindness and generosity. And of course his friendship to all. He is sorely missed.”
A fitting tribute.
