Steve wants to know what his constituents think about changes to local policing.

Policing in Britain is facing some big changes; Steve is launching a consultation to find out what people in his constituency think about these changes and policing priorities.



Steve said:

“Our Police Force has been at the centre of much attention over recent months. We are facing a big overhaul in how our policing works.



Figures released this week by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) put the number of people currently waiting for tests this month at 657,000. Last month, 651,633 were on the waiting list; whilst 595,495 were waiting for tests in the same period last year.

In South Birmingham, the number of patients waiting for diagnostic tests in June totalled 4,004; an increase of 164 people since last year.


Steve joined young people from across Birmingham to celebrate the talent and energy of young people with dance, music, poetry and a blend of different cultural traditions.

The event, held at Priory Square on 9 August, brought together youth organisations including Voice is Power, Young Peoples’ Parliament, Young Disabled Champions and Children in Care Council.  



You may be aware that the Sainsbury’s planning application to build on the former Battery site is currently making its way through Birmingham City Council’s planning process.

I thought I’d take this opportunity to inform residents that Birmingham City Council has decided to re-open the public consultation process for your comments on the revised proposals; in light of recent recommendations by the Council’s Planning Department.


Steve wants to wish good luck to pupils leaving Primary School this summer and taking the next step in their lives as they move on to Secondary School in September.


This is an exciting time for many children but it can also be nerve-racking. Steve reminded pupils that if they ever feel worried or have a problem it is really important to tell their mum or dad or a teacher.

Veterans’ Day honours our servicemen and women who did so much to protect Britain in the Second World War and beyond. The Veterans will be sharing stories and memories of their past experiences to help the students learn about the exploits of a generation who had grown up in a very different time.



Steve McCabe MP, Birmingham Selly Oak, said:


Liisa Wiseman manages the Foodbank which has been operational for about 5 months and deals with people who are destitute or in crisis in South Birmingham. This can often involve a range of people who have experienced a major crisis in their lives, including victims of domestic violence.
