It's been my great privilege to represent Manchester Withington in Parliament for the last two years. I've lived in this area all my life, and I know what a great place south Manchester is. But I also know how hard the government have made life for some of the most vulnerable people in our community over the past seven years.

Theresa May wants to pretend she called this election because of Brexit, but her real aim is to get a big Conservative majority so she can impose more cuts on our schools, NHS and public services. Only a strong Labour Party can stop her. A vote for Labour is a vote for investment in jobs, our local services and our childrens' future.

The Liberal Democrats have a record of breaking their promises, and spent five years propping up the Tories while they hit Manchester hard - they are no alternative.

I'm proud to work hard representing you in parliament, and I've not been afraid to stand up for what I believe in, and for the interests of our area. If I can help out in any way, please do get in touch.

Best wishes

Jeff Smith

Great to have the support of our newly elected Mayor Andy Burnham.

If I'm re-elected on June 8, we'll work together to protect our schools, invest in our police force and end rough sleeping in our city.

I've lived in this area all my life - I've seen how it's become harder to get a council house or a secure rental property.

This week I visited some of my old homes in the area to highlight Labour’s plan to build 1 million new houses & crackdown on bad landlords.

My pledges to you

Under the Tories, every school in south Manchester will lose out.  The worst affected schools, such as Parrs Wood and Chorlton High School, will lose almost £900 per pupil, the equivalent of 30 teachers (see below table for full breakdown).

I recently asked Theresa May what she would cut to balance school budgets, but she couldn’t answer. The only alternative to the Tories is a strong Labour Party committed to defending our schools.

I saw how a Labour government rebuilt many of the schools in our area, and as a former governor at several local schools I’m committed to our childrens’ future.  I will continue to fight against these cuts to ensure that every child in south Manchester gets a great education.

Over the last 7 years, the Tories and the Lib Dems have starved our NHS of the funding it needs and ignored the welfare of NHS staff.

The Labour Party has committed to giving our NHS the support it needs by:

✓ Bringing back the NHS nursing bursary to make the profession accessible to people from all backgrounds.

✓ Scrapping the 1% pay cap in place for NHS staff that have been overworked and underpaid by this Government.

✓ Tougher rules on safer staffing to ensure that there are always staff on hand to help.
