Greg Mulholland MP has congratulated medical device company Xiros Ltd. for making the shortlist for the 2016 National Responsible Business Champion award.
Each year, the All-Party Parliamentary Corporate Responsibility Group (APCRG) rewards one business for exhibiting outstanding corporate responsibility based on its support of a healthy work environment and investment in its local community. Under the Responsible Business Champions scheme, MPs are given the opportunity to each nominate one business operating in their respective constituencies that embodies these values. Earlier this year, Leeds North West MP Greg Mulholland nominated Yeadon-based Xiros Ltd for the 2016 award.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Greg Mulholland MP, Chair of the Parliamentary Save the Pub Group, called on BIS Minister Anna Soubry MP to give an implementation date for the Pubs Code, and to make the Pubs Code apply from 26 May 2016.
Mulholland highlighted that currently tied pub tenants were "missing out due to BIS's mistakes".
Local MP Greg Mulholland pressed defence minister Mark Lancaster for an update on the campaign to restore war widow pensions.
It follows both the protest outside Parliament and the meeting with Mr Lancaster, which happened earlier this month. The campaign, run in conjunction with the Wharfedale and Aireborough Observer, seeks to win back compensation for women widowed between 1973 and 2005, who were forced to give up their compensation upon remarrying.
The Everolimus drug is finally available for use through NHS England after the long-running #FundOurDrugsNOW campaign led by Greg Mulholland MP.
After much delay, NHS England has finally published a policy statement allowing the drug to be used to treat those suffering with the ultra-rare disease tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and as a result have kidney tumours, known as angiomyolipomas (AML).
The public have spoken and we all must accept the result of the referendum which is a vote to leave the European Union.
Of course I am disappointed and I feel that many people will start to regret this outcome upon seeing the consequences. The pound has already dropped to its lowest value for over thirty years and the process of exit and negotiating trade deals with other countries will be lengthy and costly.
I am heartbroken to hear that Jo Cox has died, a tragedy for democracy, for Yorkshire, for the Labour Party but most of all her family.
This is a very dark day for our representative democracy and for our nation, a life and career with so much promise has been taken in such appalling circumstances.
Someone who had set out to serve her area, her community and her nation has been killed doing her duty and helping her constituents.
Greg Mulholland MP today led a protest of MPs and war widows outside the Houses of Parliament, and then met defence minister Mark Lancaster in the afternoon.

Today's events follow his campaign, run in conjunction with the Wharfedale and Aireborough Observer, to win back compensation for women widowed between 1973 and 2005, who were forced to give up their compensation upon remarrying.
The MP for Leeds North West Greg Mulholland questioned Ministers about local authorities ignoring neighbourhood plans in some areas.
During questions to Ministers in the Department for Communities and Local Government on Monday 6 June, Greg Mulholland raised the concerns about some councils helping to develop neighbourhood plans in areas not under great pressure of further development, whilst not properly prioritising or assisting areas that are under pressure of development, such as Aireborough.
Local MP Greg Mulholland will next Wednesday, 15th June, meet with defence minister Mark Lancaster MP to discuss the campaign, backed by the Wharfedale and Aireborough Observer, on war widow pensions.
Currently, war widows who remarried between 1973 and 2005 cannot claim their pension, which is compensation for their husband paying the ultimate sacrifice for their country, while they are married to their new husbands.
Leeds North West MP Greg Mulholland has given his backing to a new transcription service launched by the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) and the Royal Mail.
