Dear John,

This week we saw the people of Wakefield and Tiverton give their verdicts
on this Government. I was delighted to have gained a new colleague in Simon
Lightwood who I am sure will do a brilliant job representing his
constituents in Parliament and I am looking forward to working with him.

Wakefield has shown, the country has lost confidence in the Tories. This
result is a clear judgement on a Conservative Party that has run out of
energy and ideas. Britain deserves better. Wakefield has voted Labour
because we have the solutions for the challenges facing the British people.

Tory MPs know he's on his way out, the public are absolutely sick of him,
but week after week the Prime Minister continues to look for someone else
to blame for his failures. Last week, it was his ethics advisor who
resigned, this week it is the Conservative Chairman, Oliver Dowden.

The Prime Minister is overseeing the misery of economic downturn, the
highest tax burden in decades, and now strikes. He's incapable of getting
on with his job and working people are paying the price for the Prime
Ministers failure. His government is suggesting we should all accept pay
cuts, whilst wanting to remove the cap on bankers' bonuses. His actions are
blatant and enough is enough. He must go.



In April, I wrote to the health secretary, Sajid Javid, following concerns
that West Midlands Ambulance Service was close to complete collapse. The
response which arrived more than two months later, failed to address how
the Government will tackle the root causes of the issues with West Midlands
Ambulance Service. With the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Women’s
Hospital both in our constituency, I wrote back to the health secretary to
query his lack of action and woefully lacking response.

In my letter I listed the actions that we must now see, including:

1) An end to the chronic underfunding of the NHS,
2) A realistic plan to tackle the 110,000 staff shortages,
3) There are 333 cases of bed blocking happening at University Hospitals
Birmingham alone. These must be freed up which means finding proper
solutions to fixing the social care system that allow patients to be safely
discharged back into the community,
4) Providing adequate support for primary care services so that the public
does not resort to dialling 999 to access basic treatment that could
otherwise be treated by a GP or dentist.

This week I was extremely disappointed, yet entirely unsurprised Liz Truss
failed to answer the question I put to her in Parliament on Tuesday. I
asked why she, or any member of her Government, had not visited Afghanistan
since its fall last August. I also asked, when she will reverse aid cuts
impacting women and girls, which has cost lives and is damaging our
reputation abroad? She avoided answering all of these questions and
unfortunately chose to follow the PM’s lead by chasing headlines, and not

With this in my mind, I spoke to ITV Central to put in more detail what I
saw and learnt from visiting Afghanistan and what it means to some of my
constituents locally.




In a little over a months’ time, our constituency will be playing its
part in hosting the Commonwealth Games. This is an exciting opportunity for
Birmingham and will see the creation of 20,000 jobs, huge investment and
will put the eyes of 1.5 billion people firmly on our city. I am excited to
witness the future legacy of these Games.

Consequently, there will be a temporary impact on residents. With the
University of Birmingham, Edgbaston Cricket Ground and many other excellent
venues in the constituency acting as hosts to sporting events and athletes,
there will be some disruption. I will be writing to residents directly who
will see the greatest impact with specific information – if you want to
see in advance how you may be affected, including whether you need to apply
for a Local Access Parking Permit, please follow this link which will
provide you with some of the necessary information

However, I wanted to make all aware of how you can get prepared in advance
so that we can all enjoy the Games to their fullest. First, there will be a
number of Get Set for the Games sessions. These events are largely targeted
at residents and businesses living or working near to a Games venue.
There's no need to register, just pop along and speak to a member of the
team. Find out dates and times here:

as many residents as possible to see a Commonwealth Games event for free.
