In Parliament

Steve McCabe MP and other members of the Work and Pensions Select Committee have concluded that the Government and previous governments failed to communicate state pension age changes effectively.

 

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?

 

 

In the next few months we are going to hear lots of reasons why Britain should remain or leave the EU.

 

But what do you think? Steve McCabe MP wants to hear from you!
