    Greg Mulholland, the Liberal Democrat candidate standing in Leeds North West, has welcomed a commitment to ensure access to the HIV prevention drug Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) on the NHS for people in high-risk groups, which has been announced as part of the Liberal Democrat's election manifesto.

    Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a once-a-day pill that reduces the risk of HIV infection by 86%.

    Despite its proven efficacy and potential to deliver long-term savings, the NHS has yet to approve its use, and it is currently only available in the UK through a private prescription that costs approximately £400 for a month's supply.

    14,750 pensioners living in Leeds North West will receive at least an extra £772 per year under Liberal Democrat manifesto plans to protect the 'triple lock' for state pensions.

    Thanks to the triple lock guarantee, secured by the Liberal Democrats when they were in government, the basic state pension has risen in each year by whichever is the higher of earnings, prices or a rate of 2.5%. However, the Conservatives have refused to guarantee whether the triple lock will continue, raising fears it could be scrapped.

    Long-time campaigner on the issue of criminal driving, Greg Mulholland MP, used Justice Questions in Parliament to call on the next Government to ensure that legislation that was meant to pass in this Parliament is passed before the end of the year.

    In the House of Commons, Greg Mulholland, MP for Leeds North West, has slammed Labour councillors who voted in favour of a controversial plan to build 100 homes on greenfield land opposite the 12th century St John the Baptist Church, in Adel, despite a strong objection from Historic English. All 7 Labour councillors on the planning panel voted for the development despite the very strong concerns of the damage this development would do to the surroundings of this historic building.

    Leeds North West MP, Greg Mulholland, has expressed his concern and disappointment at the decision to approve plans to build 100 homes on fields east of Otley Road in Adel, around 100 yards from the Grade I-listed St John the Baptist Church.

    At the Leeds City Council South and West Plans Panel meeting today, the application was approved by 7 votes to 3.

    Mr Mulholland had objected to the original proposals to build houses on the green fields in April 2014, which were rejected. The MP had also objected to the most recent application, and had been urging local residents to also express their concerns about the application, and the impact the development would have on local infrastructure, as well as the setting of the Grade 1 listed 12th Century Adel Parish Church of St John the Baptist, which is one of the best examples of Norman architecture in Britain.

    I look forward to standing in Leeds North West for the fourth consecutive time and will be asking local people to put their trust in me once again, to carry on being a strong voice for our area, to campaign for positive change and to hold this divisive Government to account.

    After months of telling the British people there would be no snap election, Theresa May has now done a complete U-turn and has announced she wants to have one! Having told people she wanted stability and wanted to unite the country, she is instead acting cynically in the interests of the Conservative Party, not the country. Having said at least seven times that she wouldn't seek a snap election, people will now from on find it hard to trust anything Theresa May says.
