Steve McCabe MP said:

On Saturday 25th June Steve attended the annual Bournville Festival held at the Bournville Cricket Ground near the Cadbury factory. This year was the 109th year that the event has been held in Bournville and over 8,000 people attended.


On Friday 1st July Steve attended the Executive Forum with representatives of Guangzhou to discuss potential business and education opportunities with Guangzhou and Birmingham. The event was organised by the University of Birmingham and took place at the International Convention Centre.


Steve is calling on constituents to help decide which charities should benefit from cash left on his doorstep by a Selly Oak samaritan.

Steve is now working to stop the Conservative-led Government’s plans to force Birmingham City Council into paying for a referendum.


Steve said: “This is absolutely scandalous. The Government has cut Birmingham City Council’s budget but now expects us to pay for a Mayoral referendum which the Government is insisting Birmingham holds.”


Steve said: “We should be grateful in this country for the efforts of others that spares us the horrors of war. Without the courage and sacrifices of our veterans and current service personnel our lives would be very different” 


“The sacrifices, feats of bravery, selflessness in protecting others, and supreme professionalism of those who serve and support our armed forces is something that always deserves admiration and gratitude.”


Year 6 students at Raddlebarn School held their own political 'Question Time' with Steve on Friday. Questions ranged from 'How much do MPs earn?' to local issues about the future use of the Selly Oak Hospital Site, gangs, the Olympics, and international issues like Libya and Human Trafficking.

Steve said, ‘This a very talented group of young people. I met them previously on a visit to Westminster and I’m really impressed with their knowledge and concern for others. There are some future budding politicians in this group without a doubt.’

Steve McCabe visited Whizz-Kidz earlier this year to see the work they are doing and to talk to them about campaigning. Ambassadors at Whizz-Kidz have since continued their campaign about the lack of disabled parking spaces and want to hear what other disabled people think. The survey can be accessed here
