Jack Dromey's Response to The Chancellor in the Commons regarding Police Cuts

"Just days ago, reeling from the biggest police cuts in Europe of 17,000 police officers, our police service was facing the catastrophe of being cut in half over the next 5 yrs.

"Pressure from the public, the police and the Labour Party forced the Government to think again, including embracing our proposals for sensible savings on procurement.

"Does the Chancellor agree that the first duty of any government is the safety and security of its citizens and that u-turns, however belated and however grudging are to be welcomed?"

Campaign against tax credit cuts

Earlier this year the Conservative Government announced it was going to take away an average of £1,300 from 3.3 million working families by making changes to tax credits. Tax credits are used to make sure that low income families can make ends meet.

In our constituency someone on a median wage of £23,734 will lose £2,856.

Jack’s Cites and Local Government Devolution Bill Speech

The great city of Birmingham is the city of Chamberlain and the birthplace of municipal government and municipal enterprise. It is the city of 1,000 trades; the workshop of the world. It is a city, which, to this day, has immense strengths and potential, but it is a city with high unemployment. The bitter irony is that, just as the economy is strengthening, there is an acute and growing skills shortage. I see that in my own constituency of Erdington, which has the eighth highest unemployment rate in England.

Feeling Good in the Heart of Erdington

Erdington residents had a taste of Yoga, Pilates and much more on Saturday 10 October at the first ever St Barnabas Wellbeing Festival. Hundreds of visitors were able to measure their stress levels with help from Birmingham Healthy Minds, get a health MOT from the Health Exchange and listen to live music courtesy of the Generations Choir from Castle Vale. The day also featured cookery demonstrations from Kingstanding Food Community and card making workshops with Angela Horspool from St Barnabas.
