    Local man, Duncan Brownnutt, has embarked on a 150 mile month of pain in aid of the Batten Disease Family Association. The month of pain involves running 5 miles each day in April, which is certainly a challenge for Duncan who is a keen cyclist but isn't a fan of running.

    Late Infantile Battens disease is a degenerative condition which usually starts at around age 3 and sees children very quickly lose their mobility, their speech and their eyesight. These children rarely survive into their teens. The condition is so rare that it only affects about 30 children in the UK with only 4-5 new cases diagnosed each year.

    Greg Mulholland, MP for Leeds North West, is urging local residents to object to the outline planning applications for further housing development on Church Lane in Adel.

    The applications, submitted by Hallam Land Management and David Wilson Homes, propose the extension of the current development of luxury 4 and 5 bedroom houses at the Centurion Fields site on Church Lane. The two outline applications are seeking permission for residential development with access from both Otley Road and Church Lane before a fully detailed plan is submitted.

    MP for Leeds North West, Greg Mulholland, is urging Metro to properly look into the bids to reopen Arthington station and build a new Horsforth Woodside station once the quarry site is developed, as part of the solution to local transport problems.

    The West Yorkshire Integrated Transport Authority's Scrutiny Study is not yet complete, but local campaigners fear that the bids to open Arthington and Horsforth Woodside stations have already been shelved by Metro.

    Local MP, Greg Mulholland, has launched a survey to enable local residents and businesses to express their views on the controversial NGT Trolleybus scheme before the upcoming public inquiry.

    The New Generation Transport (NGT) Trolleybus System was recently submitted to the Government and a Public Inquiry will commence at the end of April 2014.

    Greg Mulholland, MP for Leeds North West, has called for the formation of a group of transport experts from Leeds to consider the best modern integrated system for the city.

    The controversial New Generation Transport (NGT) trolleybus scheme is to be the subject of a public inquiry starting at the end of the month and currently is the only thing being proposed, due to the previous Labour Government's decision that Leeds could only have a bus based system and not other technologies, including light rail, which is a key part of the transport systems of Manchester, Sheffield and Nottingham. As a result, Metro was not allowed to consider light rail and then developed the trolleybus scheme. So the question now being asked is whether or not NGT should go ahead, when the question that should be being asked is what is the best modern, integrated transport system for Leeds in the 21st century.

    Supporters of pubco reform and the Fair Deal for Your Local campaign today went to 10 Downing Street to mark 25 years since Margaret Thatcher's Beer Orders and called on the Prime Minister and Chancellor to urgently act to stop large pub companies exploiting publicans around the country.

    2014 is the 25th anniversary since a Conservative Prime Minister and Chancellor led the Government which introduced the 'Beer Orders' to break up the unhealthy dominance of the 'big 6 brewers' who dominated pub ownership and restricted both choice for consumers and access to a very closed market for small brewers. That Government rightly identified the problem and was right and courageous in taking action, showing that Conservative Ministers do intervene in markets when they are anti competitive and failing consumers - which the current one certainly is.

    Article: Apr 11, 2014

    After taking Fair Deal for Your Local campaigners to Downing Street earlier this week, Greg Mulholland MP yesterday grilled two ministers on the delay behind reforming the pubco model.

    Mulholland is chair of the parliamentary Save the Pub group and coordinator of the Fair Deal for Your Local campaign. In the House of Commons chamber yesterday, during Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) Questions, Mulholland demanded government listen to the views of Members of Parliament and not highly paid pubco lobbyists when it came to needing to reform the pub companies business model.
