Barbara Listens - Survey of Residents Views

news8Barbara and the Labour team in Worsley constituency conducted a survey of over 20,000 local residents in early 2005.

Barbara commented:

"Many residents told us that the biggest local problem in their area was anti-social behaviour.”

"Residents said that the NHS is the most important national service, with Policing coming a close second. Other priorities included Public Transport and Traffic Congestion, Pensions and Services for Older People, and Education.”

“Labour in Government has already introduced measures to reduce antisocial behaviour and will continue to take firm action on this problem.Labour’s measures were welcomed at a recent meeting about Policing in the constituency as figures show they are already having an impact on crime.”

People said they wanted Labour to ensure that the NHS continues to improve. Labour is committed to ensuring that the improved NHS remains free and based on need, not on whether a patient is able to pay such as is proposed by the Tories and Liberal Democrats. People also told us they wanted Labour to prioritise Policing as well as getting the best deal for pensioners.

On other local issues, Barbara says:

“Many people replying to the survey raised local matters that are affecting their quality of life.

"I will be working on these in the weeks and months ahead to make our community a better place to live."
