Jack Lopresti MP and Chris Skidmore MP met The Chancellor to lobby for funds for the Great Western Air Ambulance and for a new M49 Junction

Jack Lopresti MP and Chris Skidmore MP met The Chancellor to lobby for funds for the Great Western Air Ambulance and for a new M49 Junction

Yesterday evening Jack Lopresti MP for Filton and Bradley Stoke and Chris Skidmore MP for Kingswood met with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Rt Hon George Osborne MP to discuss funds for two important issues for their constituencies.

Firstly they brought to the Chancellor's attention the Great West Air Ambulance Charity (GWAA) need for funds to run their new EC135 Helicopter for the first year and asked for money to be made available from the LIBOR Fund.

Jack Lopresti MP says: "The GWAA like all Air Ambulances is a Charity and as it is one on the most recently formed Air Ambulance Charities it does not have any reserve funds. If the Chancellor could provide them with one year's funds GWAA would be able to put themselves in a sustainable financial footing to continue to serve in the future."

Chris Skidmore says: "The Chancellor listened in an encouraging way. I am sure he understands fully the important job that Charities like the GWAA do. Jack and I will keep campaigning for these funds. The GWAA do a fantastic job for our local area, and I know from constituents in Kingswood how valued the service is. As local MPs we are determined to do all we can to help secure investment for this vital service."

Secondly Jack and Chris spoke about their support for a junction on the M49 at Avonmouth Severnside. Avonmouth Severnside is the largest Brownfield site in Western Europe and the junction would link it to other key centres in the South West.

Jack Lopresti MP says: "A junction on the M49 is in my view an essential infrastructure project to unlock Avonmouth Severnside fantastic potential for jobs and growth."

Chris Skidmore says: "The full development of the Avonmouth Severnside Enterprise Area will provide good jobs and careers in our region and to develop the area we need to have the right infrastructure in place."

EU: UK Membership — Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2014)
Lord Newby: My Lords, for the benefit of the House I remind noble Lords that we have a lot of speakers and that when the clock is at five that is time up. Even if all noble Lords from now on were to speak for just half a minute beyond five minutes, that would mean not only that my noble friend would not have her full time to respond to the debate, but the noble Lord, Lord Liddle, would have no time to...
