National embarrassment: plans for more politicians passes

National embarrassment: plans for more politicians passes

Commenting following the stage 4 vote on Senedd Reform, voted through in the Welsh Parliament today, Darren Millar MS, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for the Constitution, said:

“This is a sad day for Welsh democracy; a larger parliament, wholesale changes to the voting system, but no referendum for the Welsh people.

“The £120 million plan for more politicians, more fancy offices and a larger Senedd are the furthest thing from the Welsh people’s priorities, but that’s what Labour and Plaid have pushed through today.

“I have said it before and I will say it again. Wales desperately needs more doctors, dentists, nurses and teachers, not Labour and Plaid’s plans to spend millions on more politicians.”

Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Andrew RT Davies MS, added

“Labour and Plaid’s insistence on wasting so much time and money creating 36 more politicians is a national embarrassment.

“Our Welsh NHS is on its knees, educational attainment is collapsing and employment numbers are plummeting, but this vanity project is Labour and Plaid’s top priority.

“The Welsh Conservatives would reverse these plans and spend the money on our health service instead.”

Welsh Conservatives pledge to scrap 36 extra Senedd Members

Following Labour and Plaid Cymru voting to increase the number of Senedd Members by 36, Andrew RT Davies MS, Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, said:

“The last thing Wales needs is more politicians in Cardiff Bay.

“With Labour’s soaring waiting lists, plummeting educational outcomes and collapsing employment numbers, Labour and Plaid’s decision is completely out of touch.

“The Welsh Conservatives would scrap these extra Senedd Members and spend that money on our struggling public services.”
