In 2011, Welsh Labour promised the people of Wales a decade of delivery. We said that despite the record cuts to our budget, we would fulfil the promises we made to steer the country through tough times. We are half way through that journey and on the promises we made in the last election, we delivered.
We have now set out six new promises which are Welsh Labour’s pledges to the people of Wales.
We will support working parents by providing free childcare, offering the most comprehensive and generous childcare offer in the UK. We will provide tax cuts for all small businesses in Wales to promote more local economic growth. We will oversee the establishment of 100,000 quality apprenticeships for all ages. We will create a new treatment fund for life-threatening illnesses, and double the capital limit for those going in to residential care in order to create a more beneficial environment for both sick and old people in Wales. On top of this, we also pledge to add an extra £100m to improve school standards.
Our priority is to ensure that Swansea and Wales is heading toward a fairer, and better future for everyone. We want to support our local businesses, families, and students, while at the same time improving the effectiveness of our health system and making certain the older members of our communities get the proper care they have earned and deserve.
These pledges serve as the foundation for Welsh Labour to achieve those goals, and we are wholly committed to the deliverance of these pledges for all of Swansea.
There is a clear choice for the People of Wales in the Assembly Elections - vote Labour, we are the only party that can and will stand up and fight the cruel Tories, and battle for a fairer deal for Wales.
