Inspiring to have @ZelenskyyUa at the #NATOSummit today. We stand in solidarity with Ukraine’s fight for freedom and self-determination. Now is the time to double down and ensure Ukraine defeats Russia so President Zelenskyy can negotiate from a position of strength.

Here's @CWhittaker_MP's response to today's windfall tax announcement #energycrisis
https://www.halifaxcourier.co.uk/news/people/calderdale-mp-welcomes-energy-bills-relief-but-criticises-chancellors-method-3710333

This is one of several proposals that would be a much more palatable solution to the Energy Crisis and much closer to the amount needed to smooth the burden on people rather than a windfall tax which would only raise a fraction of the amount needed. I support @SMcPartland

Stephen McPartland @SMcPartland

I am campaigning to keep the energy price cap in place to help family finances. Read my letter to @ofgem below asking if there are any legal barriers to prevent the Government doing this.
