Steve McCabe MP has already tabled an Early Day Motion in Parliament calling for more powers to deal with the problem of unauthorised encampments which has blighted parks and open spaces across Birmingham over recent years.

 

The MP is calling on the government to:

 

Steve has been campaigning on the burgeoning issue of childhood tooth decay in Birmingham and has been calling for an early intervention scheme to improve oral health outcomes of children while reducing the financial burden of costly tooth extractions. The announcement of an early intervention scheme being piloted in specific areas in England represents progress, but Steve believes the case for including the West Midlands as part of the pilot scheme has been overlooked by NHS bosses.

 

In the last year he has been inundated with complaints about burglaries, street muggings, car jackings and aggressive anti-social behaviour, particularly that involving gangs on motorcycles creating mayhem on roads and parks and terrorising local communities. The MP himself was assaulted when he tackled thugs on motorbikes in July this year.

 

 

Steve McCabe wrote to Mr Thomas as part of an ongoing consultation into bus routes in South Birmingham. Many of Mr McCabe’s constituents will be widely affected by the withdrawal of the 27 bus, including those trying to access the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Northfield, local schools, Bournville train station and other local facilities.

 

Recent crime statistics from the Office for National Statistics show that violent crime is up 18% and all recorded crime is up 10%. In Birmingham there has been in increase in burglaries, street muggings and assaults, car jacking’s and groups terrorising our streets on mopeds and motorbikes.

 

Birmingham MP, Steve McCabe, has called for a moratorium on the conversion of family homes to Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMOs) in his Selly Oak constituency following further safety concerns raised by the Grenfell Tower fire. 

 

The figures show that 4.7% of the economically active population are unemployed, this is compared to the UK average of 2.5%. Unemployment in Selly Oak constituency has increased on this time last year.

 

Commenting on the figures, local MP Steve McCabe said:

 

The campaign, Secret Life of Us, is responding to an alarming survey which revealed that 97% of parents with a disabled child say the public do not understand the challenges they face.

A further survey shows that:

The ruling was made using the controversial FOI Section 36 exemption which is known as the “Get Out of Jail Free” card which public authorities use when they want to withhold information and no other suitable exemption can be applied.

Steve McCabe, MP for Birmingham Selly Oak, will launch his local campaign – Healthy Smiles for Birmingham – today (27th April), alongside Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary Jon Ashworth, to end the scandal of escalating child hospital tooth extractions in Birmingham.
