• West Midlands MPs are fighting for a fair deal for Birmingham

• Birmingham has already been hit by the biggest cuts in local Government history - Birmingham City Council will have to make savings of around £258 million over the next four years on top of the £567 million annual savings the council has already made since 2010/11. This includes £90 million in spending reductions next year alone.

• The city has been hugely disadvantaged by the Government funding formula that has benefitted Tory shires over high-need areas, so too have our police service and fire and rescue service.

• Conservative cuts on the scale proposed will put social care, emergency services and the protection of the most vulnerable at breaking point. Birmingham needs a fair funding deal now.
