'Plenty of policies to support from Budget'- Sajid Javid's Westminster Diary

Bromsgrove Editorial 8th Apr, 2023   0

APRIL is a month of religious celebration, from Easter to Eid, and from Passover to the start of Vaisakha – I would like to wish all the readers of the Bromsgrove Standard a happy and joyous time, whatever the celebration may be.

The last month has been a busy one in Westminster with the Chancellor’s Budget providing support for households and individuals across the UK to encourage people back to work.

I welcomed a range of policies that were outlined, especially the extension of childcare support, retraining schemes for over-50s, and the introduction of Universal Support.

Personally, I was delighted to hear that £10million will be spent on supporting suicide prevention charities – a cause that I care deeply about.

In Bromsgrove, I was delighted to visit Tardebigge Church of England First School. I would like to thank Mr Hartshorn, his staff, and his pupils for such a warm welcome and enjoyable visit.

I also met with Midlands Connect to discuss their Midlands Rail Hub scheme.

As Chancellor, in 2019, I made a commitment to support this infrastructure scheme.

I look forward to seeing the benefits that it will bring to Bromsgrove District.

I met the Midlands Connect team at Barnt Green Station. It follows up on the confirmation I secured from Network Rail to install a new lift – something I have campaigned on for many years.

As always, if any of my constituents have any concerns or issues that they wish to contact me about, I can be reached at sajid.javid.mp@ parliament.uk
