    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, visited Tredegarville C.I.W Primary School in Adamsdown as part of Primary Futures Week to help pupils make connections between what they learn and the world of work.

    Primary Futures Week is led by the National Association of Head Teachers and has been taking place from 13th to 17th October 2014. The aim is to give children a better understanding of the practical requirements needed for work so they can be motivated to improve their literacy and numeracy.

    Dear Editor,

    Thank you to everyone who attended my Crime Prevention meeting with South Wales Police at Penylan Library. I would also like to thank the staff at the library for all their help on the day.

    Figures released today showing an increasing gap in unemployment rates between Wales and the UK average are a cause for concern, the Welsh Liberal Democrats have said.

    While the UK economy is continuing to grow and more people are in work than ever before thanks to the work of Liberal Democrats in the UK Government, the growing trend is that Welsh employment is growing slower than the UK average.

    "These are unacceptable figures," said Jenny Willott, Lib Dem MP for Cardiff Central. "They are even more stark when you consider the rate across Wales actually rose to 54%.
