David Amess was elected to the Basildon seat in 1983 and 9 years later in 1992 I was elected. We have remained really close friends and colleagues ever since, so much so that in August of this year David asked me to interview him alongside Trudy Harrison MP, for his new book Ayes and Ears: A Survivor’s Guide to Westminster.

Speaking in a debate on the impact of the AUKUS pact on Anglo-Chinese relations, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown says that while we want to stand up to China, we also need to maintain a dialogue; that its human rights activities are unacceptable; and that we should start to reduce our reliance on Chinese investment.
Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown raises concerns that the vaccination of 12 to 15-year-olds offers very little benefit to the child, and there is a lack of long-term data on the potential harm. He is also concerned about the setting of a precedent on parental consent and the impact on the Gillick competency test for medical procedures in the future.
Speaking in the emergency debate on the situation in Afghanistan, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown calls on the Government to act to secure the safe evacuation of foreign and Afghan people whose lives are at risk due to their contact with NATO allies and to help with the rehabilitation of refugees as quickly as possible.
