Great Yarmouth Constituency Labour Party looks forward to contesting the election on June 8th and seeing Great Yarmouth return a Labour MP, the government has been a disaster for the people of Great Yarmouth;

Our NHS is underfunded, Mental Health and Social Care are underfunded, Universal Credit has heavily impacted both working families and local landlords and after 7 years of austerity the Tories management of our economy has failed miserably to reduce the deficit sufficiently while more than doubling our national debt.

Letter to the Editor,

Like I do, I wonder how many other people find it hard to believe that Great Yarmouth's MP the Right Honourable Brandon Lewis is not willing to meet with residents in a public meeting to hear their questions about Universal Credit?

In his written answer to the Council's invitation asking to attend this meeting he accuses Labour of playing political games - I ask him what political games is he playing by snubbing the constituents he has been elected to represent in this town?

At the Council meeting of the 17th January, the Labour Party proposed a Motion, supported by all parties, inviting Brandon Lewis MP to attend a Public Meeting to take questions on the roll out of Universal Credit in the Borough.

Great Yarmouth is being used by the DWP as a "test-and-learn centre," and there have been many cases of hardship caused to residents and families, from across all walks of life.

With the imminent closure of Greyfriar’s Health Centre on September 30th 2016 the Great Yarmouth & Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group has failed to address any of the concerns about the proposed replacement services after what amounted to little more than a public relations exercise by way of a ‘consultation’. The Save Greyfriars campaign has collected 2,744 signatures on our petition calling on the CCG to reconsider the closure.

This Thursday ahead of the meeting of the Great Yarmouth & Waveney CCG’s governing body Tony Crone will present our joint petition to Andy Evans their Chief Executive at 12pm outside Beccles House. We are proud to have been part of this grassroots campaign also supported by Unite, Unite community, the GMB, the People's Assembly, Waveney Trades council among other groups and to have received such stellar support from residents, over 2,700 of whom back this campaign.
