Figures released today by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) put the number of NHS patients currently waiting for diagnostic tests in July 2012 at 659,796[1]. 583,794 people were waiting for tests in the same period last year; an increase of 13%[2].

The reception celebrated the successful completion of the VELUX CarbonLight Housing Scheme in Rothwell, Kettering. The CarbonLight scheme is a cornerstone of VELUX’s Europe-wide Model Home 2020 Project, which aims to build energy efficient and sustainable housing which is practical and comfortable to live in.
 
The BBC has revealed plans which will mean the loss of 150 jobs and the transference of the Factual Unit to Bristol and the loss of posts in several other departments including radio, current affairs and news.

Steve has already put down an Early Day Motion in Parliament, intervened in the debate earlier this week and written to both Mark Thomson and Birmingham City Council.
