A chance to protect sports and music fans against ticket touts has been lost after Cambridge Lib Dem MP Julian Huppert last night backed the Government in voting down a cross-party attempt to strengthen the law.

Parliament voted on proposals to tackle ticket touting as part of the Consumer Rights Bill. A cross-party group of Lords and MPs had made proposals on this issue which Labour supported, but Lib Dem MPs joined Conservatives to vote it down.

In response to the Adjournment Debate in the House of Commons today on Mental Health Services in Cambridgeshire, Daniel Zeichner, Cambridge Labour Parliamentary Candidate says:

I welcome this opportunity to highlight the challenges facing mental health services in Cambridgeshire and across the country. Sadly, our mental health system is failing at a time when it should be being made a greater priority. The coalition has been strong on rhetoric about improving mental health services, but the reality on the ground is very different. Earlier this year in Cambridge, service users had to occupy buildings for months to win a reprieve for life-changing services at Lifeworks.

Cambridge Foodbank is playing a vital role in helping very vulnerable
people in and around Cambridge – but public authorities should be doing
more to help, says Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate Daniel Zeichner
following a recent visit.

Mr Zeichner joined City Councillor for Abbey Ward Richard Johnson on a
tour of the Cambridge Foodbank warehouse, and discussed the latest
statistics on usage of the service with managers and volunteers.

The latest statistics show 4712 people receiving support from the
foodbank in the last year, of whom over a third (1664) are children.
Over a quarter were turning to the foodbank because of very low income,
with the majority facing a short-term crisis caused by delays and
changes to benefits.
