Welcome to the March 2012 edition of Sajid Javid MP's newsletter.


to the March edition of my e-newsletter.  I always welcome your comments, thoughts and feedback, so please do not hesitate to get in touch with me or to forward this newsletter to anyone else who you think might like to see it. 


of last month's coach crash in France involving pupils and staff from Alvechurch Middle School is extremely saddening, particularly the tragic death of Mr Peter Rippington, a dedicated and very popular teacher.  It is clear from the number of people who have contacted me just how much he meant to all those who knew him, and his death is a huge loss to his family, friends and everyone at Alvechurch Middle School.  Many people will struggle to come to terms with this tragic event.  The victims remain in our thoughts and prayers, and I will do all that I can to help.


week, I am again hosting the annual Bromsgrove Schools Debating Competition.  This year, the competition is taking place at Bromsgrove School and the event will begin at 6:30pm on Friday, 16th March (with the first debate starting at 7pm).  Entry is free and, if you would like to join me for what is sure to be an enjoyable evening, please just drop me a line at sajid.javid.mp@parliament.uk
