Plaid responds to draft budget

04/10/2021

Responding to the draft budget published today, Plaid Cymru Leader Ieuan Wyn Jones AM said:

“The Labour government’s claim that this budget is for jobs and growth is simply not credible.  At a time of severe economic conditions, this Labour Welsh government is suggesting that we cut the budget available to the Economy Minister. Her budget has gone from £280m to £263m by 2015.

“How will this government be equipped to take action to save jobs and respond to the worsening economic crisis?  It will be impossible for them to do so – and so far, this Labour government has made no effort to shield Welsh people and Welsh communities from the worst effects of this developing situation.”
