Following my meeting with Shard End residents, I've drawn up this action plan to tackle the issues raised.
Today I launched an inquiry into the level of help and support given to Birmingham’s near 35,000 children with special educational needs and disability.
I will hear from campaign groups, experts and the parents and families of children with special educational needs and disability (SEND) to find out how these kids can be better cared for and their families supported, particularly those living in poverty.
I've called on the Home Secretary Amber Rudd to propose new laws aimed at stopping social media companies conniving in extremists’ broadcast of evil.
I proposed to the Home Secretary, who is meeting with social media companies, a set of 'best in class' changes based on ideas debated in the US, Germany and Ireland.
Residents identified the fight against crime and drugs, improving the NHS and employment for younger people as their top local priorities.
Washwood Heath, Shard End and Bordesley Green wards requested that their residents' meeting address the issue of crime and drugs. Respondents from Bordesley Green requested a meeting on street cleaning.
For those who campaigned, like me to stay in the European Union, it's fairly obvious that the concern to reduce migration was at the top of voters list of ambition. But now we are leaving the EU, a new system will be needed to manage migration from the EU.
Today sees the launch of the first ever manifesto for children of alcoholics at the House of Commons.
The hard-hitting manifesto, published to coincide with International Children of Alcoholics Week, sets out a 10-point plan to help Britain’s 2.6 million innocent victims of drink – the children of hard-drinking parents.
