[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]Welsh Labour has today unveiled an ambitious plan to get Wales working and to improve prosperity for all.

Speaking ahead of the launch of the Welsh Labour National Assembly manifesto Together for Wales, leader Carwyn Jones said the plan would make Wales stronger and create opportunities for everyone.

The next Welsh Labour Government’s plan for prosperity:

• Create 100,000 all-age apprenticeships
• Provide 30 hours-a-week of free child care, 48 weeks of the year for working parents of three and four-year-olds
• Fast broadband to every property in Wales
• Tax cuts for all small businesses
• A Welsh development bank

Mr Jones said: “This is a plan for prosperity and success for Wales and for families right across Wales. This is a plan to get the country moving by helping people into work and creating opportunities for work.

“Welsh Labour will be here for women returning to work after having children; for young people entering the workplace for the first time and for small businesses who are the backbone of our economy.

“Our aim is clear – more and better jobs, closer to home. Together we can make Wales a more prosperous place so we can all share the benefits.”

Create 100,000 all-age apprenticeships. These will be high-quality apprenticeships to ensure major projects have access to the skills they need. We will develop the earning-and-learning approach so more apprentices learn in the workplace.

Provide 30 hours-a-week of free child care, 48 weeks of the year for working parents of three and four-year-olds. Our ambitious pledge, which goes further than child care offered in England or Scotland, is for parents who are working 16 hours a week or more.

Fast broadband to every property in Wales. By 2017, we will have enabled 96% of properties to connect to superfast broadband but we are committed to giving every property a fast, reliable broadband connection.

Tax cuts for all small businesses. We will cut the amount of business rates paid by small businesses right across Wales.

A Welsh development bank. The development bank will provide funding to micro, small and medium enterprises in Wales to create jobs and provide advice to businesses, which are looking to grow and prosper.

Mr Jones added: “Now is the time to build on the record levels of inward investment and rapidly falling unemployment – we will seize this opportunity to build on our achievements of the past five years and develop a stronger, more connected and united Wales.”[/text_output][gap size=”30px” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h4″ looks_like=”h4″ accent=”true” id=”” class=”” style=””]Green Party Manifesto[/custom_headline][text_output]Screenshot from 2016-04-19 08:24:27[/text_output][vc_btn title=”Green Party Manifesto” color=”green” size=”sm” align=”center” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwales.greenparty.org.uk%2Fmanifesto16||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h4″ looks_like=”h4″ accent=”true” id=”” class=”” style=””]Conservative Party Manifesto[/custom_headline][text_output]Screenshot from 2016-04-19 09:25:42[/text_output][vc_btn title=”Conservative Party Manifesto” color=”blue” size=”sm” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.welshconservatives.com%2Fsites%2Fwww.welshconservatives.com%2Ffiles%2Fwelsh_manifesto_finalenglish.pdf||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][gap size=”70px” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h4″ looks_like=”h4″ accent=”true” id=”” class=”” style=””]UKIP Wales Manifesto[/custom_headline][text_output]s[/text_output][vc_btn title=”UKIP Wales Manifesto” color=”purple” size=”sm” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ukip.org%2Fukip_launches_its_2016_welsh_assembly_election_manifesto||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h4″ looks_like=”h4″ accent=”true” id=”” class=”” style=””]Plaid Cymru Manifesto[/custom_headline][text_output]Untitled[/text_output][vc_btn title=”Plaid Cymru Manifesto” color=”warning” size=”sm” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.plaid2016.wales%2Fmanifesto||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h4″ looks_like=”h4″ accent=”true” id=”” class=”” style=””]Lib Dem Manifesto[/custom_headline][text_output]Screenshot from 2016-04-19 11:09:06[/text_output][vc_btn title=”Lib Dem Manifesto” color=”orange” size=”sm” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.welshlibdems.wales%2Ffull_manifestohttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.ukip.org%2Fukip_launches_its_2016_welsh_assembly_election_manifesto||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][gap size=”1.313em”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][gap size=”50px” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][/vc_row]
