    In the House of Commons today, MP for Leeds North West, Greg Mulholland, called for a decision on a rail link to Leeds-Bradford Airport to be made locally and soon.

With the Leeds city region economy worth £55 billion in 2013- the biggest in the UK outside of London- Mulholland also said a decision on the most effective transport system for the city had to be made locally rather than by civil servants 200 miles away in Whitehall.
