MP says he will continue to hold face-to-face surgeries

In the wake of the killing of his colleague Sir David Amess during an advice surgery last week, Clwyd South MP Simon Baynes (pictured) says he will continue to hold face-to-face advice sessions with his own constituents.

Sir David died from multiple stab wounds as he held his regular surgery at a local church in Leigh-on-Sea in Southend West on Friday of last week.

Mr Baynes, the Welsh Conservative Member for this area, has issued a statement today in which he says: "I am deeply shocked and saddened by the death of Sir David Amess. 

"He was a much liked and respected Member of Parliament and my thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and staff."

He added: "Recently, with the reduction in Covid restrictions, I have started to hold MP advice surgeries in person again, including surgeries in Overton and Llangollen, during which I was able to help residents on a one-to-one basis with their issues. 

"And I will continue to hold such face-to-face MP advice surgeries across the constituency in close co-ordination with the police and remotely via Zoom."
