Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Northern Ireland (15 Sep 2015)
Jack Lopresti: Does my right hon. Friend agree that there will be no peace, security or long-term stability in Northern Ireland until we have dealt with the paramilitaries, and will she confirm that the police and security services are getting all the support and resources they need to do just that?

Health Provision (South Gloucestershire) (14 Jul 2015)
Jack Lopresti: I beg to move, That this House has considered health provision in South Gloucestershire. It is a pleasure indeed to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. My focus in this debate will be largely on the Frenchay hospital site and the lack of any health provision there, which affects healthcare provision across South Gloucestershire. I am pleased to see in the Chamber my neighbours and...

Avon Ring Road (M4 Link) (7 Jul 2015)
Jack Lopresti: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate, and I commend him on a brilliant campaign. Does he agree that although we want to unleash enterprise and create more jobs, and new housing is much needed, we have to have the infrastructure in place to support it?

Britain and International Security (2 Jul 2015)
Jack Lopresti: They are not mutually exclusive. We need a benchmark figure to show we are serious and that we are maintaining a commitment. That does not diminish the other things we do, looking for value for money and finding other avenues for defence and security, which I will come to. It is an important commitment for a nation state to say, “I belong to NATO. I get the benefits of the protection. I...

Britain and International Security (2 Jul 2015)
Jack Lopresti: What a privilege it is to follow the hon. Member for Dundee West (Chris Law) and his excellent maiden speech. I congratulate him and wish him well in his future career and his service in this place. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Ribble Valley (Mr Evans), I do not think back much to my maiden speech-it was not a happy moment and it is something I like to forget. Making speeches is...

Attorney General: Rule of Law (Magna Carta) (2 Jul 2015)
Jack Lopresti: Will my right hon. and learned Friend assure me and the House that any future Bill of Rights will contain the principles of Magna Carta? Will he also join me in paying tribute to William Marshal, who later became the Earl of Pembroke? He was one of the original signatories of Magna Carta, served five English kings loyally, saved us from the French, and then reissued Magna Carta under his own...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Jul 2015)
Jack Lopresti: Does the Prime Minister feel comfortable with the fact that the Conservative Government have implemented a spending target for foreign aid, but will not commit to a target of a minimum of 2% of GDP for defence? Does he realise that this is damaging the relationship with our key strategic ally, the United States, and risking our credibility with our NATO allies?

Business of the House (25 Jun 2015)
Jack Lopresti: Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate about the provision of healthcare across south Gloucestershire, especially the long-awaited and much anticipated community hospital on the old Frenchay hospital site, which has been delayed for long enough?

Christian Allard: Like all the speakers before me, I understand that the bill will play an important role in ensuring that we continue on the path to creating a healthier Scotland. It will not only protect the health of children but it can have a positive influence on decreasing the number of smokers in Scotland. I thank the Health and Sport Committee for its work and I thank Jim Hume for introducing the bill....
