This Parkinson’s Awareness Week, Steve McCabeMP has pledged his support to Parkinson’s UK’s We Won’t Wait campaign. The campaign calls for urgent action to unlock the promise of research developments that could pave the way for better treatments and drugs to treat Parkinson’s. 

 

Research released by the charity revealed that despite being an incurable, degenerative condition which can affect anyone, in the West Midlands:

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.

Today, Prime Minister May has triggered Article 50 signalling the start of a 2 year period to negotiate the UKs exit from the European Union. I have said many times since the Referendum in June last year that we must accept the outcome of the vote but it is now more important than ever to watch the government closely and it is my job to stand up for the interests of people living in my constituency.

Steve McCabe MP, Birmingham Selly Oak, will continue his fight to protect family homes in Selly Oak despite a poor response from the government.

He has expressed his anger at the government’s behaviour and poor response to his Protection of Family Homes (Enforcement and Permitted Development) Bill. It failed to progress beyond Second Reading because of the behaviour of Tory MPs who have pushed it to the back of the queue.

This week Birmingham Labour MPs wrote to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Phillip Hammond MP, to ask that he review the Government’s policy on the State Pension age for 2.6 million women nationwide. 37,000 women across Birmingham have suffered greatly from the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts that increased the State Pension Age for women born in the 1950’s.

 

The MPs have asked the Government to provide transitional state pension arrangements for the women affected.

 

Steve McCabe MP said:

 

The Chancellor announced tax increases for self-employed people from next April, which will see nearly 2.5 million people pay £240 a year more in national insurance contributions. A fifth of people who are self-employed have their incomes topped up by tax credits, this tax rise will hit hard-working people already struggling to make ends meet.

 

The Chancellor also announced £66m per year for social care for 3 years but all the experts say we need £1.9Bn now to head off a crisis.
