Welsh Lib Dems launch manifesto – A Wales that works for you

At a Penarth health centre, Kirsty Williams launched the Welsh Liberal Democrats’ manifesto:

Kirsty talked about its “relentless focus” on public services:

People want good schools, good hospitals and a vibrant economy – a strong future for Wales. After 17 years in office, people recognise that the Labour Government still fails to get the basics right.

We are launching our vision today in a GP surgery to send a clear message: we are relentlessly focused on better public services.

Our manifesto is a roadmap for an ambitious, optimistic and pioneering Wales, based on our values and our nation’s needs. Our priorities are the people of Wales’ priorities: more nurses on hospital wards, smaller class sizes for our children, and an Opportunity Economy so that people can get on in life.

It’s time Wales had a government that actually listened to people – this is a manifesto that will deliver a Wales that works for you.

You can see the BBC Wales Today report on the launch, including an interview with Kirsty and a clip of her being very efficient with a blood pressure cuff at about 7:48 here.

And here’s the whole manifesto to browse through:

The main ideas are extending the protections of Kirsty Williams’ more nurses bill and reducing class sizes. They also plan to reduce Council Tax by £100 per year for people who increase the energy efficiency of their property by two bands – something that benefits both people and planet.
