Invitation to my Selly Oak Report Back event

Thursday 18th April, 7pm

St. Stephen’s Church, Serpentine Road, Selly Park, B29 7HU

A lot has happened since my last Report Back event in Selly Oak. We are into Chancellor George Osborne’s fourth austerity budget and the cuts and squeezed living standards are beginning to bite as we reach the halfway point in this Parliament, but things aren’t getting better. I know, through my local campaigning work, that many people are struggling with the rising cost of living and are worried about the future, and their children’s future. We also now have a Labour administration running the council, who are being forced to consider huge cuts in services.


In light of these developments, I thought it would be a good time to invite you to my latest Report Back event so we can discuss both national and local issues of your concern.


You may have received a copy of my latest constituency-wide consultation on the future shape of social and elderly care. I hope to share some of my findings with you at the event. I’ve also undertaken work on the issue of the cost of energy bills, both in Parliament and in the constituency. I’d be interested to hear how your budgets are coping under the strain of ever-increasing bills.


I would like to speak to you briefly about my work in Parliament, and on the Home Affairs Select Committee, and tell you about the things I have been doing in our constituency; as well as my plans for the coming year. Maybe the biggest issue of all this year will be the cost of living. At 7pm, I will spend about 15 minutes giving a short update about what I have been up to, and then I would like to open up the discussion and take any questions you may have.


It will be quite informal; I hope you can come along.


If you live in the Selly Park area and would like to join me, please can you let my office know by phoning 0121 443 3878 or e-mailing me at


I hope to see you on the 18 April.


Yours Sincerely,


Steve McCabe MP

Member of Parliament for Birmingham Selly Oak
