In Parliament

Steve McCabe MP has joined up with campaigners from the British Red Cross for their ‘Don’t stop at 999’ initiative.

This initiative was launched after new research revealed that up to 59% of deaths from injury could potentially be prevented if more people had the knowledge and skills to carry our first aid before emergency teams arrive. As part of the initiative, Steve was given the chance to learn two simple first aid skills and has pledged his support for others to also have the opportunity to gain the confidence and learn the skills that could save a life.

Steve McCabe MP has shown his support for women and families affected by breast cancer by dressing up in pink and encouraging his constituents to take part in the UK’s biggest, brightest and pinkest fundraiser, wear it pink, on Friday 21 October.

Steve McCabe joined campaigners in wearing it pink this week to encourage people across the UK to get involved and help Breast Cancer Now towards their ambition that, by 2050, everyone that develops the disease will live.

 

Both the Coalition and the Cameron government rather quickly lost their appetites for a coherent and enthusiastic energy policy that could address high costs and the poor energy efficiency of the UK’s housing stock. The decision to completely scrap the Department for Energy and Climate Change suggests that Theresa May’s government is as unlikely as its immediate predecessors to tackle such matters.

Steve McCabe MP is encouraging organisations across his constituency to take part in an exciting opportunity to secure grants of up to £35k.

Steve McCabe MP, Birmingham, Selly Oak has joined campaigners calling for tougher penalties for dog fighting.

Former Shadow Minster for Children and Families, Steve McCabe MP is backing Foster care Fortnight (16-29 May) the UK’s biggest foster care awareness raising campaign.

Steve is backing the campaign organised by leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network. Foster Care fortnight showcases the commitment, passion and dedication of foster carers across the country.

Steve McCabe MP has joined campaigners from leading charity Alzheimer’s Society for Dementia Awareness Week. The week long campaign is taking place from 15th21st May and is seeking to increase understanding of dementia amongst the general public. It’s also hoped that the national campaign will raise awareness of Alzheimer’s Society’s services and how people can help and support those affected by dementia.

Steve McCabe MP and other members of the Work and Pensions Select Committee have concluded that the Government and previous governments failed to communicate state pension age changes effectively.

 

Having previously proclaimed the strength of his long term plan and how he’d insulated Britain from world events, in sharp contrast to the optimism of the Autumn Statement of only four months ago, we were told of gloom in the world economy and a series of missed targets and revised forecasts.

 

Once again he has missed his deficit reduction and debt targets.

 

 

This means that Selly Oak Constituency is now in the top 15% of constituencies for unemployment.

 

Local MP, Steve McCabe MP said:

“It is shocking that unemployment in my constituency has risen three months running now and is way above the national average. The Office for National Statistics is expected to downgrade the UK’s growth forecasts for this year, what will this mean for my constituents and jobs in our area?
