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.
