Jack Unveils Staple Hill Information Pillar

Jack joined members of the Staple Hill Beat Team and their newly appointed Inspector, Deryck Rees, for the unveiling of the Staple Hill Pillar. This provides information and contact details for Avon & Somerset Police, in particular the Officers responsible for Staple Hill along with help to deal with anti social behaviour. Local Councillors Shirley Potts and Ian Boulton were on hand along with representatives of local Housing Associations and members of Staple Hill Shop Watch.

Jack said, ' I welcome the prominent display of direct contact information for the Staple Hill Beat Team. It is reassuring for the public to know how to report anti social behaviour easily should they need to. This pillar is a 'first' for Avon & Somerset Police and it will be interesting to monitor its perception locally. '

EU Referendum: Gibraltar — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (20 Jul 2016)
Jack Lopresti: My hon. Friend is talking about the NATO context. Yes, Spain ought to be a friendly country and an ally. We are duty-bound and treaty-bound by article 5 to come to its defence. If it were attacked by an external enemy, or any enemy, we would potentially send our people into harm’s way to defend it.
