Nia Griffith – 2021 Comments on UK Government’s Plan for Wales

The comments made by Nia Griffith, the Shadow Secretary of State for Wales, on 20 May 2021.

Instead of investing in the tools that Wales needs as a strong and vital part of a successful United Kingdom, years of cuts and underfunding by this UK Government have hit Welsh families and left Wales worse off.

Despite their promises, successive Conservative governments have completely failed to provide Wales with the kind of funding that is needed.

That this plan has been drawn up without any engagement with the newly-elected Welsh Labour Government is testament to the Conservatives’ approach of overlooking Wales at any opportunity.
