    Nurses in Wales are constantly telling me that they're under pressure. They're firefighting at the frontline with increasing workloads and frustrated at being unable to provide the quality of care that they are trained to, and want to, deliver. 

    Whenever I'm talking to people up and down Wales, they're shocked when I tell them that there is currently no legal duty to provide safe nurse staffing levels in Welsh hospitals. That's why I'm pleased to be launching my draft Safe Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Bill today for consultation.

    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, has welcomed Liberal Democrat manifesto plans which would make it a legal requirement for companies to publish what they pay men and women.

    Under the proposals companies employing more than 250 people would have to publish the difference in pay rates between men and women or face a £5,000 fine. Currently leading employers are encouraged to publish pay gap information on a voluntary basis. Only 140 out of 7,000 big firms have done so.
