I would also like to declare that my youngest son serves in the British Army, also as a gunner. The armed forces covenant has had a positive...

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Jack Lopresti: The hon. Gentleman is of course absolutely right. There is a responsibility on our part as Members of Parliament to link up with service charities such as the Royal British Legion to make sure that they are aware of what we can do to help veterans in our own communities.

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Jack Lopresti: Of course I will support that. As I said, it is imperative on all of us to link up with local service charities and do whatever we can on all levels to help our veterans and their loved ones, families and dependants.

Jack Lopresti: Will my right hon.

Jack Lopresti: Will the Minister give way?

Jack Lopresti: Just briefly. I appreciate the Minister giving way. On the point about our attitude and the optimism that we need, we all recognise that people have genuine concerns about the process, yet we must not talk down the Northern Ireland economy.

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Funding for Northern Ireland (24 Jan 2017)

Jack Lopresti: Does the hon. Lady not also recognise that a fundamental economic issue for Northern Ireland is rebalancing the economy away from the public sector? Brexit provides an opportunity for a more outward-looking export-based economy and will help rebalance it.

It should carry 600,000 passengers per...
