The Princess Royal Hospital in Telford will get an extra £4m to help it prepare for winter, the health secretary has announced.
Matt Hancock was responding in Parliament to a question from Telford MP Lucy Allan, who invited him to visit the town again and hear concerns about plans to move specialist women and children's services to Shrewsbury.
The money was described as "winter capital funding", but the Wrekin MP Mark Pritchard tweeted afterwards "£4M extra funding for a 'new' midwife-led maternity unit alongside the main women and children’s wards at the PRH in Telford."
The hospital has not yet confirmed how it will be spending the £4m.
MPs disagree over whether A&E is saved or not
The two Conservative MPs who represent people in Telford can't seem to agree whether the accident and emergency department at the Princess Royal Hospital has been saved or not... and what that actually means.
The MP for the Wrekin, Mark Pritchard tweeted to say it "will remain open despite Labour's scare stories".
But the Telford MP, Lucy Allan, replied to say the so-called A&E Local that will replace it is "not 24/7" and that the "fight goes on".
The Future Fit plans to reorganise hospital services in Shropshire involve making Shrewsbury the county's centre for emergency medicine and giving Telford a downgraded A&E Local instead, but it's not yet been explained what that will involve.
Under the Future Fit plans released in 2016, which attracted considerable anger from politicians and campaigners in Telford, the town would get a 24-hour urgent care centre staffed by GPs and advanced care practitioners, but not consultants.
It is unclear if the proposed A&E Local differs from this model.
Boris Johnson said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda".
But it means the time MPs have to pass laws to stop a no-deal Brexit on 31 October would be cut.
Deputy leader of the Labour Party and West Bromwich East MP Tom Watson called the move "an utterly scandalous affront to our democracy".
While Birmingham Edgbaston MP Preet Kaur Gill tweeted it was "an affront to the democratic process" and added "this must not happen".
The Conservative MP for the Wrekin, Mark Pritchard tweeted: "If it takes Parliament being prorogued to help deliver Brexit, then so be it. Democracy means delivering on Brexit. The PM is right to take this decision."
And the Conservative MP for Telford, Lucy Allan, wrote on twitter: "The ‘Stop Brexit’ brigade have had three years of Parliamentary time on this. Brexit is happening."
The prime minister said he did not want to wait until after Brexit "before getting on with our plans to take this country forward", and insisted there would still be "ample time" for MPs to debate Brexit.
Shropshire Council has also opposed talk of a merger in the past and it's possible that if the two authorities were to merge, the Conservatives would lose their majority in Shropshire.
Conservative MP calls for leadership voting change
The Conservative MP for The Wrekin, Mark Pritchard, says the party needs to change the way it elects its leader.
Tory MPs can stand for the top job with just two nominations from colleagues - that's compared to the 15 required for those wanting to stand as a chair of a select committee.
So far, there are 12 candidates in the leadership race, but Mr Pritchard hasn't said who he’s backing.
Conservative MPs at odds over Brexit
This afternoon's vote on the Brexit withdrawal agreement has set Conservative MPs at odds with each other.
The MP for the Wrekin, Mark Pritchard, decided to vote for the deal, after opposing it when it first appeared and tweeted to say: "All those who voted against it are inadvertently, or purposely, frustrating Brexit."
But the MP for North Shropshire, Owen Paterson, who has always opposed the prime minister's deal told Parliament before the vote he would maintain his "integrity and reputation" and not change his mind now.
Row over plans to 'dump village on local community'
Proposals to build 3,000 homes on greenfield land near the M54 at Tong in Shropshire have been criticised by the local MP, who says developments should be built on brownfield sites instead, and accused developers of "dumping" homes on communities.
Shropshire Council is working with four local authorities in the Black Country on the plans and says while it doesn't need the extra homes, the development would create a lot of jobs.
Mark Pritchard said local residents must be listened to and that it was important any new development had the infrastructure to support it.
We are seeing huge numbers dumped on communities with very little consultation and very little thought given to the provision of local GPs or school places and also the environment."
Handful of MPs switch to back the PM
A number of Conservative MPs who voted against Theresa May's first Brexit agreement decided to back her last night, including a handful in the West Midlands.
The MP for the Wrekin, Mark Pritchard, said before the vote he was going to give it his "unenthusiastic" support, because it was a "significant improvement" and because there was a danger there could be no Brexit at all.
The North Herefordshire MP Bill Wiggin and Andrew Mitchell, who represents Sutton Coldfield, also decided to back this deal after opposing the last one.
Mr Wiggin said he thought the "whole country wants us to get on with it".
MPs make minds up over PM's Brexit deal
West Midlands MPs have been waiting for the attorney general's legal advice on Theresa May's Brexit agreement, before deciding if they will support it, but now appear to be making up their minds.
The Wrekin MP, Mark Pritchard, who campaigned to remain in the EU, voted against her first agreement, but tweeted to say he will back this one:
