Parliament has spent the past couple of weeks locked in internal debate about what should happen to those MPs whose actions are such that they demean their right to serve in public office.

 

Steve McCabe MP is urging people to join the campaign to dramatically increase the number of people trained in life-saving CPR and help create a Nation of Lifesavers.

More than 30,000 people suffer an out of hospital cardiac arrest in the UK every year – 80% of which occur in the home, often in front of family members and loved ones. But fewer than one in ten people survive, partly because not enough people have the skills and confidence to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Steve McCabe MP is backing Mencap’s Hear my voice campaign which is about empowering people with a learning disability and their families to make sure their voices are heard by their local MPs and candidates in the lead up to the May 2015 General Election.

Steve met with campaigners who are calling for better support for children and their families and confirmed his support for the campaign by signing-up to say, “I’m listening”, on the new campaign website: www.hear-my-voice.org.uk

During Foreign Office Questions in the House of Commons on 22 July 2014, Steve McCabe MP asked:

Borrowing totalled £11.4 billion over the month, higher than the £10.7 billion forecast by economists, and £3.8 billion more than in June 2013.

 

Commenting on the figures, Steve McCabe, MP for Birmingham Selly Oak, said:

 

Students at Baverstock are taking part in the Send All My Friends to School Campaign run by the Global Campaign for Education. Steve was really impressed by the students campaign and told them how he had visited Mozambique and children there had to get up at 4’oclock in the morning to walk miles to school.

The Government recently announced Greater Birmingham would receive £350 million as part of the Local Growth Fund.

 

Steve asked David Cameron at Prime Minister’s Questions:

“As bribes go, is offering that huge region less than £10 per head just 37 days before the general election not too little, too late?”

The Queen gave her final speech of this Parliament today before the next election in May 2015 and it was clear the Coalition have run out of steam and ideas and are failing to help those most in need.

The Labour party criticised the government for not doing enough to tackle low wages, insecure jobs and rising living costs.
