Plaid comment on draft budget debate


Plaid Cymru leader and finance spokesperson, Ieuan Wyn Jones AM has commented following the debate on the draft budget in the Senedd:

“What has been made very clear this afternoon, by voices from across the Assembly, is that this draft budget, in its current form, does not meet the needs of the people of Wales. Plaid Cymru now hopes to continue to engage in constructive discussion with the government in order to reach an agreement.

The government’s draft budget doesn’t respond to the dire economic situation being faced by the people of Wales. The communities of Wales are currently in the middle of an economic crisis and we in Plaid Cymru are determined to force the government to respond to that crisis.”
