    Dear Editor,

    Holocaust Memorial Day provides an opportunity for all of us to look at the lessons from the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and recent genocides and apply them to the present day to create a safer, better future.

    This year's theme of "Keeping the memory alive" comes at a particularly important time as 27th January 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

  • Cllr. Elizabeth Clark by Cathays Library
    Deiseb: 2015 Ion 27

    Cardiff Liberal Democrats have criticised plans which could see Cathays Library closed for good.

    Under budget proposals by the Labour administration running Cardiff Council, the library will close down unless a community group comes forward to take over.

    Elizabeth Clark, Lib Dem councillor for Cathays, said: "Only five years ago - when the Lib Dems ran Cardiff Council - we were investing over £1million into refurbishing the library. It would be tragic, and a colossal waste of public money, if this wonderful facility and beautiful public building were to be lost."

  • Mental health
    Erthygl: 2015 Ion 13

    The Welsh Liberal Democrats are calling for a radical change in how Wales' NHS approaches mental health services.

    The Children, Young People and Education Committee recently published a critical report that painted a stark picture of the state of mental health services in Wales. The report found that young people in particular were facing a service that "cannot cope with demand."

  • Peter Black conference
    Erthygl: 2015 Ion 13

    Six-figure redundancy packages in the public sector would be a thing of the past under proposals announced today by the Welsh Liberal Democrats.

    Welsh Lib Dem AM Peter Black is arguing that pay-outs should be capped at £90,000 for people working in the NHS and for council staff.

    The move comes in the wake of a string of controversial taxpayer-funded golden goodbyes. Only last week it was reported that disgraced Carmarthenshire County Council chief executive Mark James could be in line for a severance deal worth £446,000. This followed the announcement last year by Pembrokeshire Council that it paid its former chief executive Bryn Parry-Jones an estimated £330,000. Last year, Mary Burrows, the then chief executive of Betsi Cadwaladr was reported to have received a deal worth £470,000.
