Liam Byrne, Labour’s shadow Mayor of the West Midlands, has issued a cross-party letter addressed to the Prime Minister calling for vaccines to be issued across our community pharmacies.
The letter, co-signed by Liam Byrne and MPs from Labour, Liberal Democrat and Conservative MPs calls on Boris Johnson’s government to utilise community pharmacies in the race for mass vaccination.
Labour Leader, Keir Starmer, is today [Monday] in the West Midlands with Liam Byrne, to pledge to back opportunities for young people to earn and learn as Labour analysis shows that Street failed to deliver on his manifesto promise to boost apprenticeships – even before Covid.
In the last election, Andy Street promised 'zero young people will be unemployed or not in skills training' in his manifesto.
Labour’s candidate for West Midlands Metro Mayor, Liam Byrne MP has pledged his support to organisations that provide women the training and opportunities needed to get back into work.
Launching his Women’s Manifesto with Labour’s Shadow Policing Minister, Sarah Jones MP, he set out a sixteen-point plan to end discrimination against women in the region’s workplaces.
Young people aged 16 to 18 years old from across the West Midlands will have free travel on buses at the weekend pledged Liam Byrne, Labour’s Candidate for the West Midlands today.
He was joined by Labour's Shadow Bus Minister, Sam Tarry MP, who was campaigning in the Mayoral elections on 6 May in a visit to Yardley Wood Bus Depot.
Liam Byrne, Labour candidate for Mayor of West Midlands:
Football is a British invention and for millions of us, it is a cornerstone of community life.
So the idea that a small elite of Europe's richest clubs will break away and stitch up a deal behind-closed-doors to shut out the majority of our communities' teams is a complete betrayal.
A campaign spokesperson said:
“In all honesty it's slightly comic that Boris Johnson is visiting his ambassador in the West Midlands, whose big transport boast was to lay a mile and half of tram track last year.
"There are literally snails that cover five times more ground than that in a year."
Labour’s Shadow Mayor, Liam Byrne MP will be briefing opposition defence spokesman, the Right Honourable John Healey MP on his ten-point plan to support the West Midlands 76,000 former service personnel and their families.
