THE Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Andrew Gwynne MP was in Ammanford this evening, Friday (Jul 13) to show his support for the Labour candidate Tom Fallows who is standing for election for the Saron seat on the County Council.
The fundraiser took place at the Pensioner’s Hall in Ammanford and included a meal of curry and rice, an auction and a raffle. The MP for Denton and Reddish gave a rousing speech in which he focused on Labour’s chances of winning the next general election as well as what he claimed to be a fantastic record of government from Labour at the Welsh Assembly.
He praised the institution for retaining provision for the poorest in health and education and firmly blamed the Tories in Westminster for the financial difficulties local authorities are facing across Wales.
The MP was joined by Lee Waters AM, Joyce Watson AM, Tonia Antoniazzi MP, Christina Rees MP, Nia Griffith MP and the leader of Carmarthenshire Labour Rob James.
