Constituency OR On your behalf

The Chancellor has sold 5.4% of the government’s stake in RBS raising £2.1billion, a third below the price paid.

 

The UK bailed out RBS in 2008 and 2009 by buying shares for £45billion, but Osborne has sold the share at well below the price the government paid for them meaning an estimated loss to the taxpayer of at least £1 billion.

 

According to figures from the Department for Work and Pensions, 4.1% of people in Billesley are claiming Jobs Seeker’s Allowance, this is almost double the national average. So while the economy is slowly recovering the benefits are yet to reach Birmingham. Steve McCabe and local councillors want action to increase employment options in Billesley.

 

Steve is inviting local residents to come along to his regular Report Back which will give people the opportunity to raise local and national issues which matter to them.

 

Please contact Steve McCabe MP’s office on 0121 443 3878 or email steve@stevemccabe.me.uk for further details and to book your place.

The application states that the site which has been chosen is the junction of Heath Road and Selly Oak Road (Bournville Ward). However I discovered that pavement markings have already been painted at the location by council workmen and I asked the council why they are preparing for work to begin without approval.
