October Newsletter from Richard Burden MP


October has certainly been a busy month for me. You may have heard that I have recently been appointed a Shadow Minister within Labour’s Transport Team – a very exciting opportunity that I have written about further in my monthly newsletter for October.

I have also been calling for action on a number of important issues for Birmingham Northfield, including knife crime, education and the BBC. Finally, it has been pleasure to welcome a new ambulance hub and credit union to our area – and to host the second meeting of the Climb Project and a very special ‘Birmingham Day’ in Parliament.

I hope you enjoy reading this month’s update, and remember you can also sign up to recieve the monthly newsletter straight to your email account.
