Steve McCabe MP is supporting this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, a campaign run by the charity The Reading Agency.

Steve McCabe MP (Birmingham Selly Oak), Jack Dromey MP (Birmingham Erdington) and Richard Burden MP (Birmingham Northfield) are requesting an urgent meeting with the Council’s Chief Executive Stella Manzie to discuss the proposals.

 

The Queen delivered her speech in the House of Lords with a heavy emphasis on Brexit, outlining 8 Bills including the Repeal Bill which will repeal the European Communities Act 1972.

 

Other measures announced included an Automated and electric Vehicles Bill, HS2 Bill to extend High Speed Rail from Birmingham to Crewe and a draft Tenant’s Fee’s Bill, a Labour policy that prevents landlords and estate agents from charging big fees to tenants.

 

The ruling was made using the controversial FOI Section 36 exemption which is known as the “Get Out of Jail Free” card which public authorities use when they want to withhold information and no other suitable exemption can be applied.
