The MP for Leeds North West gained the award from Brake in recognition of his campaign for automatic licence suspension for drivers who have killed or are caught at twice the drink-drive limit.

The campaign was launched by the family of Jamie Still, a sixteen-year-old who was killed by a drink driver in January 2011. The driver was charged with causing death by dangerous driving, but allowed to keep his licence for eight months while he awaited trial.
