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: 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...

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...

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?

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Iran (Proposed Nuclear Agreement) (16 Jun 2015)
Jack Lopresti: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. Does he agree that the proposed deal seeks to legitimise Iran’s nuclear activities, such as enriching and stockpiling low-grade uranium, for which there is no civilian use whatever? We are talking about a country that is one of the world’s largest-if not the largest-state sponsors of terrorism.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: NATO Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (8 Jun 2015)
Jack Lopresti: Given reports in recent days of attacks against Ukrainian forces by Russian forces and separatists backed by Russia, what is NATO doing to deter such aggression, and could a rapid task force play an important role in that?
