WELSH Labour today (Wednesday 14 April) highlighted what the Tories would do to Welsh communities with the publication of ‘The Secret Tory Manifesto’.
The document shows the scale of planned Tory cuts to Wales and spelled out the terrible impact they would have on Welsh jobs and the economy.
Major rail investments
Major broadband and digital investment
Emergency payments to families in need
600 Police Community Support Officers
Support for Veterans
Support for Welsh businesses
Supporting young people study abroad
Crucial support to tackle violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence
Support for the Wales for Africa programme
Welsh Labour’s Vaughan Gething said:
“The real choice at this election – as the numbers, the polling and the voter conversations tell us – is between Welsh Labour and the Tories in Wales.
“We all know that the Tories in Wales won’t stand up to their London bosses. They never put the economic interests of Wales first, and will never speak out when Tory policies hit jobs in Wales.
“And that’s why we have a duty to shine a light on just what a Tory Welsh Government would mean for our economy and for Welsh jobs.
“As ‘The Secret Tory Manifesto’ shows, the Tories pose a very real risk to Welsh jobs, the Welsh economy and Welsh Communities.
“From broadband to rail, from police support officers to tackling violence against women and girls; the Tory axe would see over £230 million slashed from Wales.
“Each pound that the Tories cut is a threat to Welsh jobs and the Welsh economy.”
