First Minister Challenged Over Lack of Support for Children with Learning Disabilities

Interim Leader of the Welsh Conservative group Paul Davies AM has today challenged the First Minister over his Government’s record on supporting children and young people with learning disabilities

This follows the damning report published by the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, which showed significant failings in the delivery of support for children and young people with learning disabilities.

However, the Welsh Labour Government has consistently failed to take decisive action to deliver a step change in the level of support offered to those children and young people who have learning disabilities

AM Attends Withybush Hospital Petition Handover

Paul is pictured with Assembly colleagues receiving the petition from Myles Bamford-Lewis.Local Assembly Member Paul Davies recently met with campaigners from across Pembrokeshire who travelled to the Senedd to submit a petition opposing plans to downgrade services at Withybush hospital. The petition, signed by over 40,000 people, was presented to the Assembly’s Petitions Committee by local health campaigner Myles Bamford-Lewis.

He said, “I was delighted to welcome campaigners to the Senedd and receive their petition alongside my Assembly colleagues. It was great to see so many people come together and make it absolutely clear that any plans that will result in the downgrading of services at Withybush hospital are simply unacceptable. The sheer enthusiasm for the campaign was felt by all who attended and showed that we will not give up without a fight. The petition has clearly gathered a huge amount of signatures, which will hopefully secure a debate in the Chamber and I look forward to taking part and standing up for my constituents. I will continue to oppose these disastrous proposals and work with campaigners in Pembrokeshire and colleagues at the Assembly until we see these proposals dropped and services protected at Withybush hospital.”

First Minister challenged over Welsh Labour’s NHS funding record

In First Minister’s Questions today Interim Welsh Conservative leader Paul Davies AM challenged Carwyn Jones on his Government’s record on funding the NHS in Wales.

Mr Davies highlighted the fact that the First Minster remains the only UK leader to have cut an NHS budget – and that his own Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social services has recently admitted that the Welsh Government’s decision to deliver a cash flat budget settlement “didn’t work”.

Mr Davies then pushed the First Minster on whether he would commit to ensuring that increases in NHS funding delivered by the UK Government would be matched in Wales.
