I have added my signature to Early Day Motion 1104, set down by Labour leader Ed Miliband in Parliament, to stop Government plans to privatise the NHS.
New regulations introduced last month by Government Ministers could force doctors to open up the NHS to the private sector, leading to fears that services could become fragmented.
This is [...]
Thanks to everyone who came out with me in Farnworth on Saturday afternoon. It was great to spend time talking to local residents about David Cameron’s millionaires tax cut. A lot of people told me how badly the bedroom tax is going to affect them when it comes into force. I’ll continue to campaign on [...]
David Cameron has plans to impose a £180 ‘Mummy Tax’ on working women at the same time as slashing £100,000 from the tax bill of millionaires.
1,679 new mums in Bolton South East this year will want a Government that is on their side. But while David Cameron promised he would lead the most family-friendly Government [...]
The government has announced it will cut housing benefit for people with a spare room in their social or council let home, despite the DWP impact assessment acknowledging that there is a shortage of smaller properties for tenants to move to.
The measure will cost an estimated 660,000 people an average of £728 per year. Disabled [...]
The 2010 general election campaign was one of the most divisive in British history but there was one area of broad agreement between the three main parties: international aid.
All three main parties committed themselves in their manifestos to Labour’s target of spending 0.7 per cent of Gross National Income (GNI) on Overseas Development Assistance and [...]
I’m supporting Ed Miliband’s plan to re-introduce a 10p rate of income tax, paid for by a mansion tax.
This week, he said:
“We would cancel David Cameron’s millionaires’ tax cut, and a Labour Government would make the tax system fairer by taxing mansions and reintroducing the 10p tax rate to help working families.
“David Cameron’s economic vision [...]
The Tory-led Government has imposed the biggest funding reductions in the public sector on local councils. Funding for local government is projected to fall by 3.9% in 2013/14 and a further 8.5% in 2014/15, which means a 33% fall in real terms over the CSR period. They are responsible for the consequential cuts to local [...]
A letter from fire minister Brandon Lewis to the chair of the House of Commons Regulatory Reform Committee has revealed that the government is set to put forward proposals “that would enable fire and rescue authorities in England to contract out their full range of services to a suitable provider.”
This would mean that over 1600 [...]
Cuts to public spending on infrastructure are having an impact. According to the Office for Budget Responsibility’s own assessment of the previous Labour Government’s plans, we would have been spending more on capital than the Government have this year, last year, and the year before. In total, the Tory-led Government has spent £12.8 billion less [...]
I’m supporting Ed Miliband’s call for the government to do more to create much-needed quality apprenticeships for young people in Bolton.
In the week the government finally announced details of the planned HS2 high speed rail route – a project initiated by the last Labour Government – Labour has called for 33,000 apprenticeships to be created [...]
