HERE is how the Bradford district's MPs voted on this afternoon's Additional Covid-19 Restrictions: Fair Economic Support motion.

The motion, put forward by the Labour Party, called for a 'fair one nation deal' to give areas being moved into higher local restrictions the financial support they need to support businesses and workers affected.

It included increasing furlough payments to workers from 66 per cent to 80 per cent and giving additional support to businesses which may have to close or would lose business.

During the debate, Bradford East MP said West Yorkshire needed "£75 million as a starting point" if it were to be moved from Tier 2 restrictions to Tier 3.

It followed the breakdown in negotiations between the Government and Greater Manchester, with Labour leader Keir Starmer accusing the Government of treating the North with "contempt".

The motion was voted down by 340 votes to 261.

Voting in favour of the motion were Imran Hussain (Bradford East), Judith Cummins (Bradford South), Naz Shah (Bradford West), Tracy Brabin (Batley and Spen) and Alex Sobel (Leeds North West).

Robbie Moore (Keighley), Stuart Andrew (Pudsey) and Craig Whittaker (Calder Valley) all voted against the motion.

Shipley MP Philip Davies abstained from the vote.

MPs voting against the motion were contacted to explain their reasoning, but none have provided a statement so far.
