Today is #ArmedForcesDay 🇬🇧 I pay tribute to all who make up our military community, from our distinguished servicemen and women, cadets, veterans and reservists. Thank you for serving our great country and defending all of our freedoms! 🇬🇧👍
Incredibly sad to hear this news. Harry was a much-loved icon of regional news television in our region for so many years. My thoughts and prayers are with Harry’s family. #RIPHarryGration
Our much loved friend and colleague Harry Gration died suddenly today. We are absolutely heartbroken to give you this news.
Tonight our hearts go out to Harry's wife Helen, their children and all of Harry's family and friends.
Team #Dewsbury and Team #ColneValley attending the first annual Northern Research Group Conference today to promote levelling up and prosperity across the north. 🙌 @AdamGregg @JasonMcCartney @johnjtaylor29
Lovely evening in Wakefield with a great team of @Young_Tories @Conservatives to support @cllrnadeemahmed as he works for every vote. Wakefield born and bred, Nadheem will be a strong local voice.
Great to join @mark4dewsbury @maggie_erewash @JasonMcCartney & @michaelgove
Getting on with the job means helping you own your own home.
The new measures we've just announced will help 1st time buyers 👇
👑 Today marks the start of a truly historic national occasion, which will see families, friends, and communities come together to celebrate this unprecedented landmark in Her Majesty's remarkable reign.
👑 God Save the Queen!
Out in Wakefield this afternoon and evening with @helenharrisonuk @VotePursglove @cllrnadeemahmed @mark4dewsbury @Conservatives Great response on the doorstep.
Alongside the action we’ve already taken this year today's measures will ensure:
The vast majority of households receive £550.
Pensioners receive £850.
And almost all of the eight million most vulnerable households will receive support of at least £1,200.
I’ve heard people’s concerns about the impact of the Energy Bills Support Scheme repayments on future bills.
So those repayments will be cancelled.
Furthermore, the £200 of support for household energy bills will be doubled to £400 for everyone.
Disabled people face extra costs in their lives like having energy-intensive equipment around the home or workplace.
So, to help the 6 million people who receive non-means tested disability benefits, we will provide an extra one-off disability cost of living payment worth £150.
From the autumn, we will send over eight million pensioner households who receive the Winter Fuel Payment – an extra, one-off pensioner cost of living payment of £300.
We will send a one-off £650 cost of living payment directly to around eight million of the lowest income households.
Worth over £5 billion, there will be no need for people to fill out forms – we will send the payment straight into bank accounts.
🚨 Last night, Labour & the Lib Dems voted against our Public Order Bill to stop dangerous protest tactics.
🚑 Rather than side with law abiding majority, they chose a selfish minority blocking roads and emergency services.
Every day of the week, police officers selflessly protect the public from harm. Thank you to those officers and forces across the nation who keep the public safe.
WE ARE STAYING UP!!!

Really interesting to join my colleague @DSimmonds_RNP & British producers & food exporters earlier today. I learned more about the great British food already exported around the world & heard how we can explore opportunities to export even more. Thanks to @NFUtweets for hosting!
🚔The 589 additional recruits mean there are now 5,775 police officers in #WestYorkshire
From working with @WestYorksPolice on the Police Parliamentary Scheme, I know just how valuable more officers will be in helping crackdown on crime locally.
Thanks to @NFUtweets for their session on food exports today. Many businesses in the constituency are seeing opportunities in this area. Joining my excellent colleague @mark4dewsbury
2410 pensioners across #Dewsbury, #Mirfield, #Kirkburton & #DenbyDale already claim Pension Credit, but it is important everyone else in our area claims all the help they are entitled to that is why I back our campaign to boost Pension Credit take-up! https://www.markeastwood.org.uk/news/mark-eastwood-mp-backs-campaign-boost-take-pension-credit-dewsbury

We’re doubling the Household Support Fund to £1bn.
This will allow Local Authorities to help those in need in their local areas.
From July, people will be able to earn £12,570 a year without paying any income tax or National Insurance.
It’s a £6bn personal tax cut for 30 million people in the UK.
It’s worth over £330 a year and is the largest increase in a basic rate threshold – ever.👇

Residents I met in Kirklees live in retrofitted, energy efficient homes, which cuts their energy bills by £350 a year.
The right energy strategy - focusing on renewables - creates a real difference to people’s lives.
That’s the difference Labour in power makes.
