We have one week to go in this election campaign.

The effort put in by local party members, constituents, fellow MPs and supporters has been fantastic. We have knocked on thousands of doors - certainly more than any other election in my 12 years as the MP - and delivered tens of thousands of leaflets and direct mail letters. But for all our efforts so far, it's the next seven days that are the most important.

Our third leaflet will arrive today from the printers, and it hammers home the threat from the Tory manifesto to our constituents - the threat to winter fuel payments, pensions, the value of homes, and the threat to families with young children who will be hit by the withdrawal of free school meals for infants.

Over the next seven days I need your help to get this message across to the public. We will be getting out our new leaflet and our direct mail letter to potential Labour voters every day between now and polling day.

We will be campaigning every day at 11am and 6pm, meeting at the constituency office, Broad St, Bilston WV14 0BZ. But with delivering you can drop by anytime, or call us and we will deliver the leaflets to you with a map showing where they should be delivered.

And we are making a special effort for Super Saturday 5 this coming Saturday, June 3rd. We will make a big push at 11am on Saturday to get out our final leaflet. If you can help, even for an hour on Saturday, please come to the office at 11am.

We also need help for polling day (8th June) to help get our vote out. A good polling day operation is essential to getting a good result. If you can help us on polling day, please sign up here; http://www.patmcfadden.com/volunteer

The Tories called this election because they thought they could have a procession to power. We have seven days to prove that partisan calculation wrong.

8,763 children in Wolverhampton face losing free school lunches under Tory plans.

The new analysis, based on Government statistics, shows 8 out of 10 pupils in Wolverhampton aged 7 and under who currently receive free school meals would no longer get them under Conservative proposals to means-test eligibility.

The figures also show families would be around £450 a year worse off for each child they have in infant school.

We all know the importance of a good meal for focussed learning and concentration in class. The growth of free school meals for the youngest children has also been an important financial help to young families in recent years. The Conservatives’ plans will make it harder for children and families. And their proposals to replace free school meals with free breakfasts have already been criticised for being hopelessly under-funded. If these plans go ahead, 8,743 children in Wolverhampton will lose their lunches and if you've got two children under seven years old you could face paying almost £1,000 a year to cover the cost of a hot lunch.
 
Scrapping universal free school meals for the youngest children, and cutting funding from our local schools, show the Tories have no intention of helping Wolverhampton's ‘just about managing’ families. Our City needs strong Labour MPs who will fight to give all our children the best start in life, not a Tory who will roll over and accept the cuts being handed down to local people.
