Constituency

The bill has been the subject of controversy over recent weeks as the Government scrambles to try and convince medical practitioners of the need for reforms which will pass control of 80% of the NHS budget to GPs and allow far greater involvement by private sector companies in the provision of NHS health services.
 
His call comes after a letter issued yesterday by the Business Secretary Mark Prisk shows that 13 regional assets are being flogged off to the highest bidder. This includes Pebble Mill and the Corus site in Birmingham. The money, however, is being put back into the Governments coffers rather than returned to the region.

Steve McCabe MP has visited a number of Big Lottery Fund projects in Selly Oak constituency to offer his support.

I want to know you views on a very important issue that has been raised with me by a number of my constituents. It is the Council's consultation on home to school travel for children and young people with significant special needs.

 

The consultation is looking at the extent to which the Council should support transport needs for eligible children with special needs and in a nutshell they want to change the policy to only provide transport support "to the nearest appropriate school".

 

Birmingham Selly Oak MP Steve McCabe is holding a consultation event this Saturday – 26th March at St Edwards Roman Catholic School, Greenland Road, Selly Park, B29 7PN.

The event will take place between 11am and 12.30 and is part of Steve’s ongoing discussion with local residents about the future of the site. Over 1,000 local people have already taken part in the consultation.

Five hundred people from across the Selly Oak constituency took part in a survey which is part of a series conducted by Steve McCabe into the public’s attitudes to policing, anti social behaviour and criminal justice.

The survey reveals that there is real anxiety about cuts in policing, opposition to abolishing Anti Social Behaviour Orders and scepticism about the cost and benefits of elected Police Commissioners.
