Welsh Labour manifesto launch


I attended the launch of the Welsh Labour Manifesto today with my Newport East Labour colleague John Griffiths.

The manifesto is one to be proud of; building on the good work of the last Welsh Labour Government and putting us firmly on the path to a more prosperous, healthy and

Some of the key policies introduced include:

- A ground-breaking new £2billion school building programme

- Working towards ending the use of zero hours contracts in social care

- Improved access to GPs and investment in facilities to reduce waiting times

- The creation of a Welsh development bank

- Repeal of regressive UK Government legislation on trade unions in devolved areas

The manifesto also reinforces our six election pledges: childcare support for working parents; more money for schools; 100,000 all-age apprenticeships; tax cuts for small businesses; a New Treatment Fund for the NHS, and a better deal for people who need care in old age. 

Our manifesto is wide-reaching and ambitious, and is built around the Labour values of fairness and social justice.
