Steve Rotheram said ( about Tracy Brabin ) : "True leveling-up has to mean tackling longstanding and structural inequalities that exist between North and South in this country on a wide range of issues, from healthcare and job prospects, to transport and infrastructure spending. “This is not an issue of party politics but one of fairness and social justice. “As leaders representing millions of people across the North, we want to work with government to make that a reality. “The North has been hit harder than the rest of the country, but I believe that with proper support we also have the potential to bounce back further and faster than the rest of the country too”.

Dan Jarvis said ( about Tracy Brabin ) : "Rebranding the railways will not solve the underlying problems for passengers nor level up the North. “Passengers must come first, and their needs must be put ahead of profits. In South Yorkshire and across the North we need transformational investment to upgrade our decrepit Victorian infrastructure and improve connectivity between Northern towns and cities. “If this government want to be taken seriously on the levelling up agenda, this will be a key test that they must meet”. Tracy Brabin, the Mayor of West Yorkshire, said: “Passengers in the North of England have long experienced the impact of disjointed rail services which have failed to address their needs. “We must avoid swapping a fragmented railway for one run from Whitehall. I want to see a strong local voice in the way services are commissioned and run, which needs to be supported by the devolution of funding" External link

Rees Mogg said ( about Tracy Brabin ) : "This will increase the likelihood of these offenders being stopped and send a strong message that if they insist on carrying a knife they will be punished and will face a custodial sentence. “Though I do fear that what we say about what we will do in the future is remarkably little comfort to the families who are bereaved, but that perhaps some comfort will be how seriously the issue is taken and that what they have gone through will be the spur for action, not just from the Government but from the opposition and from all across this house to try and tackle this terrible scourge”. Ms Bramwell told the Telegraph & Argus: “Thank you Tracy for your phone call days ago it was really nice to speak with you. Second, thank you for using Brad’s name and publicly giving condolences to his family. Thank you for accepting the fact that this need has to be prioritised. Furthermore, it is ok to identify a need, and speak about this, but it’s the actions that take place that will prevent more knife attacks. Identifying a need is not good enough this is step one. As I said when we spoke, you are welcome to be apart of this movement and will be invited to the meeting in 2 weeks. We have a long way to go, this can’t be talked about right now and forgotten later, our young people and communities deserve more. I want to say thank you Tracy Brabin for doing this. But the response wasn’t good enough and people need to see their MP’s challenging responses like that”. Speaking after the incident, Detective Superintendent Jim Griffiths of Kirklees Police, said: “We fully realise the concern this incident will cause in communities in Batley and officers from Kirklees District are working today to support HMET colleagues in investigating what took place and also speak with local residents. “Our local neighbourhood policing teams, in conjunction with our partner agencies, are working closely with our communities to understand problems and identify areas where greater support is needed. “This incident has taken place against a backdrop of big falls in knife crime in Kirklees over the past 12 months following multiple police operations and continued proactive patrolling by colleagues from the force’s Operation Jemlock team.

Tracy Brabin added : “It’s disappointing that our communities now have to come to terms with new restrictions.

Tracy Brabin said : “I want to do politics differently here in West Yorkshire. I'm born and bred here and am so incredibly proud to represent my home as an MP. "Too many areas of our region have been forgotten for too long - we need investment in jobs, transport, housing, and skills for young people and those who need to retrain - these will be my priorities. "I'm not your traditional politician, I've come to politics through a lot of real life experiences. I've worked in insecure jobs, worried about paying the bills, and I've had a wonderful career in acting and writing. I can bring something different to this role, I'll be a different sort of Mayor who listens in order to lead and who isn't distant in a City Hall somewhere, but right there at the grassroots with the people and communities I grew up in” External link

Steve Rotheram said ( about Tracy Brabin ) : "True leveling-up has to mean tackling longstanding and structural inequalities that exist between North and South in this country on a wide range of issues, from healthcare and job prospects, to transport and infrastructure spending. “This is not an issue of party politics but one of fairness and social justice. “As leaders representing millions of people across the North, we want to work with government to make that a reality. “The North has been hit harder than the rest of the country, but I believe that with proper support we also have the potential to bounce back further and faster than the rest of the country too”.

Dan Jarvis said ( about Tracy Brabin ) : "Rebranding the railways will not solve the underlying problems for passengers nor level up the North. “Passengers must come first, and their needs must be put ahead of profits. In South Yorkshire and across the North we need transformational investment to upgrade our decrepit Victorian infrastructure and improve connectivity between Northern towns and cities. “If this government want to be taken seriously on the levelling up agenda, this will be a key test that they must meet”. Tracy Brabin, the Mayor of West Yorkshire, said: “Passengers in the North of England have long experienced the impact of disjointed rail services which have failed to address their needs. “We must avoid swapping a fragmented railway for one run from Whitehall. I want to see a strong local voice in the way services are commissioned and run, which needs to be supported by the devolution of funding" External link

Rees Mogg said ( about Tracy Brabin ) : "This will increase the likelihood of these offenders being stopped and send a strong message that if they insist on carrying a knife they will be punished and will face a custodial sentence. “Though I do fear that what we say about what we will do in the future is remarkably little comfort to the families who are bereaved, but that perhaps some comfort will be how seriously the issue is taken and that what they have gone through will be the spur for action, not just from the Government but from the opposition and from all across this house to try and tackle this terrible scourge”. Ms Bramwell told the Telegraph & Argus: “Thank you Tracy for your phone call days ago it was really nice to speak with you. Second, thank you for using Brad’s name and publicly giving condolences to his family. Thank you for accepting the fact that this need has to be prioritised. Furthermore, it is ok to identify a need, and speak about this, but it’s the actions that take place that will prevent more knife attacks. Identifying a need is not good enough this is step one. As I said when we spoke, you are welcome to be apart of this movement and will be invited to the meeting in 2 weeks. We have a long way to go, this can’t be talked about right now and forgotten later, our young people and communities deserve more. I want to say thank you Tracy Brabin for doing this. But the response wasn’t good enough and people need to see their MP’s challenging responses like that”. Speaking after the incident, Detective Superintendent Jim Griffiths of Kirklees Police, said: “We fully realise the concern this incident will cause in communities in Batley and officers from Kirklees District are working today to support HMET colleagues in investigating what took place and also speak with local residents. “Our local neighbourhood policing teams, in conjunction with our partner agencies, are working closely with our communities to understand problems and identify areas where greater support is needed. “This incident has taken place against a backdrop of big falls in knife crime in Kirklees over the past 12 months following multiple police operations and continued proactive patrolling by colleagues from the force’s Operation Jemlock team.
