Birmingham Selly Oak MP, Steve McCabe, has urged people living in the Midlands to protect themselves from the deadly threat of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning.

Recent research from the Carbon-Monoxide – Be Alarmed! Campaign found that 47% of people in the Midlands and over 27 million people across the country are at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, because they do not have a CO alarm fitted in their home.

 

The local MP has repeatedly called on the government to find a sponsor to rescue the school which was first plunged into uncertainty in June 2016.

Following the announcement by Tesco at the start of March that they will no longer be building a store in Stirchley, local MP Steve McCabe and Councillor Mary Locke have been going door to door to ask Stirchley residents what they think should happen to the site in future.

 

They’ve already spoken to hundreds of residents who are angry and dismayed after putting up with all the disruption for so long. Steve and Mary are determined that local people should have their say in any future plans for the site.
