5 September 2022

The Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin, said:

“My door is open for the new Prime Minister who will urgently have to grapple with the cost-of-living crisis.  

“Here in West Yorkshire, one in three households will have no disposable income left after paying their energy bills as things currently stand, and I’m calling on Liz Truss to urgently freeze the energy price cap to provide them a lifeline.

"Her new Government must also deliver on her pledge to deliver Northern Powerhouse Rail in full, with that vital new station in Bradford, as well as come good on long-promised investment to help make “levelling up” a reality and not just a soundbite.”
