    Article: Oct 22, 2014

    Following the publication of an report into the Welsh Liberal Democrat flagship Pupil Deprivation Grant, our Shadow Education Minister Aled Roberts writes...

    It is encouraging to see that this Welsh Government-commissioned report has identified a number of positive indicators to show that the PDG is having its intended effect. Particularly, there is evidence to show that a significant amount of new activity has been undertaken to support disadvantaged pupils; there has also been a culture change in schools which has improved the way they tackle disadvantage and monitor impact.

    Jenny Willott, MP for Cardiff Central, joined Bishop David Wilbourne for Christian Aid's Hunger For Justice weekend (Saturday 18- Sunday 19th October) to discuss commitments to take action on climate change.

    The Welsh Liberal Democrats have welcomed the Welsh Government's U-turn on its plan to introduce table valuations for cattle culled under the bTB eradication programme and to embrace instead the Welsh Liberal Democrat position of maintaining the present system.

    In the Senedd this afternoon the Welsh Government has made a statement where they have decided to stick with the current system after completing a consultation earlier this year which reintroduced the option of a table valuation system. While such a system would have reduced Welsh Government costs, it would also undervalue Wales' best cattle and see farm incomes further reduced.

    Eluned Parrott AM has called on the Welsh Government to accept that its flawed proposals for the M4 are doomed.

    The Welsh Government's consultation on the M4 has been widely criticised for failing to look at other options and for not properly taking into account environmental concerns.

    This week in the National Assembly, AMs will debate the Environment Committee's report into the M4 the contents of which the Welsh Government failed to take into account before making its decision on the M4.

    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%).

    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.
