Leader of the Labour Party, Ed Miliband MP was the keynote speaker and opened the conference declaring  that Victorian management practices which exploit zero-hours contracts have no place in the modern world and will be banned by a Labour government.

 

Before Ed Miliband’s keynote speech, he took the time to recognise the efforts of some of the party’s longest-serving and most dedicated members. Barbara Evans of Herefordshire; Keith Austin, former Leader of Telford & Wrekin Council and Cllr Ish Mistry of Rugby, all received National Merit Awards.

Labour Candidate, David Jamieson was joined by Shadow Policing Minister and Birmingham MP, Jack Dromey, on a walk-about with community wardens in West Bromwich as part of his campaign to be the next West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner.DJsmall.jpg

 

David and Jack joined the community wardens to highlight the importance of visible neighbourhood policing across the West Midlands. Neighbourhood Policing was introduced by the previous Labour government as a way of giving communities peace of mind and making streets safer.  It was considered to be a great success but, as a result of cuts from the Tory-led Government, Neighbourhood Policing has suffered.

Labour’s Police & Crime Commissioner candidate, David Jamieson said, “Neighbourhood Policing is a key priority for me if elected. I will protect it and strengthen it. The Street Wardens scheme ran by Labour-run Sandwell Council is a great example of how local Councils can work with the Police to make areas safer, cleaner and more pleasant places to live. If elected I will work with local Councils closely to make sure that the Police are in touch with local concerns and on top of local issues.”

Jack Dromey said: "Neighbourhood Policing was introduced by Labour and is crucial in ensuring the safety and security of local people where they live and work. A Labour Police & Crime Commissioner and a Labour Government will protect and strengthen Neighbourhood Policing.”

Along with protecting neighbourhood policing, David Jamieson has pledged to recruit more police officers; keep Police Community Support Officers and the vital work they do; stop the privatisation of the police and ensure they are accountable to the public and not shareholders and make sure police are on the beat and not behind a desk.

Police and Crime Commissioner candidate goes on the beat.
