Four years after the Conservative Party promised to "level up" Britain's forgotten communities, the New Britain Project's Broken Britain Index paints a stark picture of deepening regional inequalities
Speaking to the Mirror, Preet Gill, Labour MP for Birmingham, Edgbaston, said that the report's highlighting of a "Healthcare Emergency" in and around her constituency provides "further evidence of this government failing the people of the West Midlands".
"After 13 years of Tory failure, our communities Birmingham, Solihull, and Sandwell have had enough and desperately need change.
“Only Labour will level up Birmingham and the West Midlands. We will reform the NHS, so everyone has access to healthcare when they need it, delivering two million more operations, scans and appointments a year, 700,000 extra dental appointments a year, and recruiting dentists to areas most in need, all paid for by abolishing the non-dom tax status," she said.
