Even Labour’s backbenchers recognise their Gilestone Farm mistake
Labour backbencher, Mike Hedges MS said ministers should never have spent £4.25 million on Gilestone Farm, near Talybont-on-Usk, Powys, for Green Man.
Commenting, Welsh Conservative Leader, Andrew RT Davies MS said:
“The Labour Government’s negligent approach to its purchase of Gilestone Farm has been the subject of much discussion by observers outside of the Labour party for some time.
“It is highly questionable that Labour Ministers did not assess a full business plan and failed to take a single minute in their six meetings leading up to this £4.25 million murky deal.
“The time, effort and money Labour Ministers in the Senedd spent on Gilestone Farm should have gone towards our Welsh NHS.
“Labour clearly cannot be trusted with public money and it looks like Members on their own benches are coming around to agreeing.”
