Carwyn Jones will be in Flintshire today to launch the Welsh Labour manifesto
Wales First Minister Carwyn Jones will be in Flintshire this afternoon unveiling Welsh Labour’s own manifesto.
The Labour Party in Wales has promised to establish a “real partnership” with a Jeremy Corbyn-led UK Government, as it launches its manifesto.
Speaking at the launch in Northop, Mr Jones will pledge a raft of infrastructure projects, including the Swansea tidal lagoon, rail electrification and a new development bank of Wales.
He will also vow to protect the funding that would have come to Wales from the EU.
Mr Jones will say;
Our manifesto is an ambitious, comprehensive plan of what Welsh Labour can do, together, working in the Assembly and Westminster.
The Tories have done nothing to advance Welsh infrastructure in the last seven years – and they’ll do nothing for the next five if given the chance.
A strong team of Welsh Labour MPs, working with us in the Assembly, have already done so much to put these issues high up the agenda in Wales.
But, we need two Labour governments working together to make our economy work for everyone, not just a few at the top.
Working in partnership, Welsh Labour will commit to protecting the funding that would have come to Wales through the EU.
That money will be spent in Wales, and on Welsh priorities, and not stashed away in Whitehall as the Tories now threaten.
