Steve McCabe MP, a member of the Work and Pensions Select Committee, was joined by a cross party group of MPs at the University of Birmingham to hear evidence from Birmingham academics and other witnesses on welfare reform and citizens income. It is part of a programme to get the committee 'on the road' and out of the closed confines of Westminster.

Parliament returned on Monday to hear the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt’s, Ministerial Statement on the performance of the NHS. What did we learn? The Government are continuing to bury their heads in the sand by refusing to admit the #NHSCrisis that is affecting patients across the country, including those in our very own Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Steve McCabe MP (Birmingham Selly Oak) has hit out against the Government’s decision to re-open the consultation into the closure of Baverstock Academy, despite repeated assurances that the Department for Education were looking for a sponsor to save the school.

 

Information emerged this morning that the Government is now planning to re-open a 4 week consultation period into closing the school.

 

 

Steve McCabe MP has been demanding that the Department for Education and the Regional Schools Commissioner honour their promise and find a new sponsor to save the school.

 

Steve McCabe MP said:

Steve has made it clear that people should know their rights and not be intimidated by bailiffs who aren’t following their code of conduct.

Steve McCabe MP said:

Steve McCabe MP was perplexed to hear from the Planning Department they will not take enforcement in some cases on unauthorised buildings as they probably would have approved the application anyway.   

Steve McCabe MP was thrilled to present Madison Poolton, winner of his Parliamentary Christmas card competition with a family ticket to watch the rags to riches tale of Dick Whittington at the Hippodrome.  

Steve runs an annual Christmas card competition with local schools and once again was faced with the difficult task of picking a winner out of hundreds of creative and imaginative designs from pupils across Selly Oak constituency.

Steve has been working with the Save Baverstock Group, made up of parents and local residents, to fight for the school’s future. Together they have collected over 1,500 signatures all calling for the Government to save the school.

 

 

Steve McCabe called for the debate after being contacted by constituents who have had distressing experiences trying to get fertility treatment through the NHS.

 

In the last year, three clinical commissioning groups (South Norfolk, Mid-Essex CCG and North East)have already decommissioned their assisted conception services as a cost saving measure and now a further twenty-six are either considering reducing provision or decommissioning their assisted conception services entirely.
