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: What progress has been made on the creation of a NATO very high readiness joint task force.

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?

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Defence Spending (12 Mar 2015)
Jack Lopresti: While I disagree with my hon. Friend about misguided previous military engagements-I do not think that either was misguided-we did see what happens when we try to deploy troops abroad on the cheap without their being properly equipped. We lost a lot of good people because of that, and there were a lot of injuries. We should never put our people in that position again.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Infrastructure Investment (10 Mar 2015)
Jack Lopresti: What steps he is taking to invest in infrastructure.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Infrastructure Investment (10 Mar 2015)
Jack Lopresti: I am delighted that the Government have made significant commitments to the south-west region, such as the fantastic £50 million-worth of investment for a new junction on the M49 in my constituency. Will the Minister confirm what further investments he is making for improvements to transport across the south-west region as a whole?

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Members’ Paid Directorships and Consultancies (25 Feb 2015)
Jack Lopresti: I thank the hon. Lady for giving way and I have no outside interests to declare. How would her plans affect reservists, who serve in the military and can often be off on operational tours for months on end earning extra income?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Service Personnel (Ukraine) (25 Feb 2015)
Jack Lopresti: Can my right hon. Friend reassure the House that, regardless of any force protection measures taking place before deployment, our people will be legally authorised under any future rules of engagement to pick up weapons and defend themselves if they need to?


Parliament

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Sammy Wilson MLA: Conduct Investigation Report (30 Jun 2015)
Steven Agnew: Thank you, Mr Speaker. We already have an Executive who publicly squabble and, indeed, where one member takes another member to court. That in itself sets a bad example for these institutions. The Standards and Privileges Committee should set a standard; we should act corporately and speak with one voice.

City Deal Funding (Aberdeen) (30 Jun 2015)
James Wharton: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. The hon. Gentleman’s comments have been heard loud and clear. They will be recorded as part of the debate and no doubt properly taken into account. I appreciate that he intends to be a consistent advocate on this matter, and I suspect that this is an issue that we will discuss again. I very much agree with the hon. Members for Aberdeen North and for...
