Labour's Election Pledges

Albert.jpgBirmingham:  Tech City

We'll bring science and industry together to boost jobs of the future with a new University Enterprise Zone at the city's heart.

A City of Apprentices

We'll create a Birmingham Apprenticeship Agency by bringing businesses and colleges together to double the number of apprentices over the next 18 months.

A Living Wage City

We'll work to get 10,000 more Brummies off the minimum wage of £6.31 and on  to a living wage of at least £7.65.

Tackling child poverty

We'll create a Birmingham Child Poverty Commission to help the city's schools, social care, health services and employers break the poverty that blights the lives of a third of our children.

Tackling drug use and crime

We will always put victims first and tackle anti-social behaviour.  We will campaign to put police back on the beat.  Thousands are blighted by drug addiction and the crime that feeds it.  We will work with the NHS and the police, in a fighting partnership, to clean up addicts and take out their suppliers.

Quality homes

We'll build 70,000 more houses over two decades and tackle rogue landlords to improve the quality of rented homes.

Leisure and open spaces

We'll replace old leisure facilities with a £36m investment in leisure centres and work with residents to manage parks and open spaces.

Standing up for you in Europe

Only Labour will protect rights at work such as 4 weeks paid holiday and time-off for Mums and Dads when their children are born.  The Tories and UKIP want to end these rights.
