Over 70 local residents turned out on Saturday 7 November to attend a meeting organised by local MP Steve McCabe (Birmingham Selly Oak) to show support for The Protection of Family Homes (enforcement and permitted development) 10 Minute Rule Bill.

Before the Election in May 2015 David Cameron promised there would be no cuts to child tax credits, but in the Chancellor’s Summer Budget in July he announced cuts to Working and Child Tax Credits which will hit working families on low incomes.

 

Steve has criticized the government for its secretive dealings around TTIP and said that research sponsored by the Washington based Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers which was withheld by the motor industry only served to cement his concerns.


Steve McCabe has been inundated with planning complaints in recent years. Many people are frustrated at the lack of enforcement action to tackle breaches in planning law by the local Council.
