MetiNews.Com - Barry Sheerman says we must respect the guidelines in new Tier 3 as December 2 deadline looms
Breaking News ! Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman has urged people to sit tight and respect the guidelines as West Yorkshire is expected to be placed in a tougher form of Tier 3 after December 2. Tomorrow (Mon) the Prime Minister Boris Johnson, will confirm national restrictions will end on December 2 and set out how England will move back into a three-tiered, regional set of restrictions. While some local measures will be similar to those in place previously, the tiers will also be strengthened in some areas in order to safeguard the gains made during the period of national restrictions. Mr Sheerman said: "I will fully support the toughest measures being imposed because we have got to stop this virus. "I get regular updates from Owen Williams, the chief executive of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust and it makes for grim reading. Things are very serious indeed.

"A good way to think about it is for us to become like hedgehogs and go into hibernation mode.
. Those are the people we have to protect until the vaccine starts arriving." Asked what hope he could offer businesses, he added: "I guarantee that for small and medium-sized businesses who are experiencing such tough times if they get in touch with my office they will get a phone call from me.
"As well as statuary grants, Kirklees Council is also able to dispense discretionary grants and I have been trying to help The Camel Club in Huddersfield town centre in this way." Louise Biddle, who runs the club with her husband Dave, said: "Barry has been very helpful in trying to point us in the right direction and he says we can definitely apply for a discretionary grant so we are on with that now. "Last year we had a turnover of £1.25m but with a staff of up to 60 in total we don't make an enormous profit and there are a lot of bills to pay."
