***Local by-Election this Thursday - Can you help***

This coming Thursday, 15th September, North East Derbyshire Labour Party has a crucial by-election and we need your help to win for Labour. 

Diane Abbott MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health, responding to United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust plans to temporarily close Grantham Hospital’s emergency department at night time, said:

“I am shocked by the plans to close an emergency department at night. The decision puts lives in danger and is a result of the critical staffing crisis across the NHS.

 

“It’s recklessly irresponsible to suggest to patients that they could wait till the morning to receive treatment. People could be left in pain and misery whilst their conditions worsen. Closing an A&E overnight will only add to the enormous pressure on nearby A&E departments, departments who are barely coping as it is. 

 

“The truth is despite the Tory’s bogus claims of putting more into health, our health services has never been under so much financial pressure.  Our NHS is beginning to buckle under this government. Hospitals across the country are chronically understaffed whilst overworked trainees are leaving the profession all together.”

New figures release today by the Resolution Foundation show that home ownership in the East Midlands has fallen by 8.1% since its peak in October 2014. The figures show that at its peak home ownership in the East Midlands was at 75.0% in Oct 2014 compared with the latest figures of 66.9% in February 2016 - a fall of 8.1%.
 

Grahame Morris MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary for Communities and Local Government, commenting the Resolution Foundation’s report on home ownership, said:

 

“This research shows that for all the Government's rhetoric they have failed to deliver on one of their key promises to build the homes needed to tackle the UK's housing crisis. Building more homes is part of the solution that involves increasing the housing mix we need to deal with the chronic housing crisis we face today. The report highlights that we have the lowest level of new builds for generations. At the same time more and more people are being forced into the private rented sector, paying higher rents with little protection from unscrupulous landlords.”
