Constituency OR On your behalf

 

The figures show that unemployment among those eligible to work in Selly Oak constituency is up to 4.4% compared to 2.4% nationally.

 

Commenting on the figures, Steve McCabe MP said:

 

Steve has met with the Schools Minister Nick Gibb MP and demanded the full facts about the school’s finances and the role of the Education funding Agency and the Regional Schools Commissioner. Steve is working closely with local Brandwood Councillors and Save Our Baverstock Association to campaign to save the school.

 

 

Severn Trent have told Steve that they believe the water pipe was damaged by a third party and their teams have been on site working hard to isolate the leak and identify what repairs are required. Severn Trent have informed Steve this afternoon that they have now isolated the leak and the repairs are being carried out today and the flooding has now cleared.

 

 
Since July 2015 travellers have moved on to the Stirchley site, next to Hunts Road, on four separate occasions. Each time the area is blighted by dumped rubbish, green waste and anti-social behaviour. Local residents have told Steve that they are scared to walk their dogs in the park as they feel intimidated.

Last week parents, carers and students were shocked to find out that Trustees of the LEAP Academy Trust who are responsible for Baverstock Academy, in Druids Heath, are seeking permission from the Secretary of State to close the school.

 

The Royal College of Surgeons have written an open letter to six NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups across the West Midlands outlining their concerns about plans to impose restrictions on surgical treatments across the region, affecting more than 2 million people.

 

 

Having previously proclaimed the strength of his long term plan and how he’d insulated Britain from world events, in sharp contrast to the optimism of the Autumn Statement of only four months ago, we were told of gloom in the world economy and a series of missed targets and revised forecasts.

 

Once again he has missed his deficit reduction and debt targets.

 

 

This means that Selly Oak Constituency is now in the top 15% of constituencies for unemployment.

 

Local MP, Steve McCabe MP said:

“It is shocking that unemployment in my constituency has risen three months running now and is way above the national average. The Office for National Statistics is expected to downgrade the UK’s growth forecasts for this year, what will this mean for my constituents and jobs in our area?
