Thanks to Ward End

Thanks to all those who came to my residents meeting in Ward End last night – especially colleagues from West Midlands Police. We’ll post a full write up later but the three key local issues raised were;
1. Speeding and dangerous parking – especially folks dropping off children at school. We had a long debate about why parents drive their offspring a few hundred yards down the road
2. Drugdealing – still seen as a problem especially by the shops on St Margarets Road
3. Impact of doubling the school size; this was on the whole seen as a good thing; but there was a real worry that parking was going to get much worse

We then had a long chat about Labours policy review and the things the government was doing wrong. Here’s what was top of residents issue-list;
1. Lack of jobs especially for young people
2. Prices especially petrol prices
3. Immigration
4. Human rights and influence of judges
5. Europe – too much control of decisions lost

Again, we’ll write this up and make sure it’s part of our policy review work. If you couldn’t come and have a comment email me on byrnel@parliament.UK
