Together for Wales | 2016 Manifesto
Together we have built a Wales that is more confident, more equal, better-skilled and more resilient. As a country we have punched above our weight on the world stage, and now we are ready to do more.
Never before has Wales led the UK in the way we’ve bounced back from a recession. And though times are still tough for many, unemployment here is now lower than London or Scotland. Inward investment is at a record level, and more of our young people than ever before have the skills they need to shape their own futures.
This manifesto – and our promises to you are built around the ideas of family and fairness. Where ever you are on life’s journey, and what ever your hopes and aspirations, our pledges and policies are designed to make sure the next Welsh Labour Government can help make things a little easier.
Wales is on the up.
This manifesto is the culmination of a conversation we’ve had with you – the Welsh people. Through events and debates across the country, we have listened to your concerns – and here we present our answers to the challenges of Wales today and Wales tomorrow.
Childcare support for working parents; more money for schools; 100,000 all-age apprenticeships; tax cuts for small businesses; a New Treatment Fund for the NHS, and a better deal for people who need care in old age.
Welsh Labour will form a government that will be there for you and your family at the moments that matter. All schools will be better funded, but not in competition with one another. Our NHS will be modernised, but not privatised. Better support for the small businesses that drive our economy and breathe life into our town-centres. Safer, faster roads and rail networks – a transport system built for the future.
The momentum we see in our improving infrastructure and public services can only be derailed by a change in political direction. Now is not the time to take a risk, now is the time to build on the rm foundations we have set.
Unlike the Tories, we’ll never take people for granted. Welsh Labour is a party of the people, for the people.
If you play fair, play by the rules, and pay in – we are with you.
That is the Welsh Labour way. Together for Wales.
