  • Aled Roberts conference
    Erthygl: 2014 Hyd 20

    The poorest children in Wales are being let down by the Welsh Labour Government, Aled Roberts AM has argued today following the publication of the second 'State of the nation' report into social mobility and child poverty.

    The report was commissioned by the UK Government and produced by a group chaired by former Labour Minister Alan Milburn said that is was "especially concerned " that a smaller proportion of Welsh children who receive free school meals achieve five good GCSEs (26%) compared to children from similar backgrounds in England (38%).

    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.

    There have been a number of burglaries across Cardiff when households were targeted specifically for gold, so I decided to hold the event with the Police because a number of local residents have raised concerns about these burglaries with me.

    The latest unemployment figures from the Office for National Statistics show that across the UK unemployment fell by 154,000, lowering the unemployment count to 1.97million.

  • Erthygl: 2014 Hyd 15

    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.

  • Profile
    Erthygl: 2014 Hyd 14

    Shocking figures published by the Welsh Liberal Democrats reveal that 423 patients in Cardiff and the Vale are being forced to wait over a year for the start of their treatment.

    The information, obtained by a Freedom of Information request, shows that nearly 1,400 patients in Waleshave been waiting over a year until they received their treatment.

  • Kirsty Brecon Hospital
    Erthygl: 2014 Hyd 14

    Shocking figures published by the Welsh Liberal Democrats reveal that nearly 1,400 patients in Wales are being forced to wait over a year until the start of their treatment.

    These unacceptable figures are despite the Welsh Labour Government's own target that not a single patient should wait longer than 36 weeks until the start of their treatment.

  • Kirsty conference stage
    Erthygl: 2014 Hyd 8

    Kirsty Williams, leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, has called for the Welsh Labour Government to do more to support people in Wales suffering from mental health.

    In his Conference speech, Nick Clegg is expected to announce that people with depression should begin "talking therapy" treatments within 18 weeks, from April. Young people with psychosis for the first time will be seen within 14 days - the same target as cancer patients.
