‘You have pushed schools to crisis point’: Welsh Conservative Leader backs teachers pleading for better management of education budget

Paul Davies AM confronted the First Minister earlier today as he stood up for the exasperated Association of School and College Leaders, who have been driven to publish an open letter to Minister for Education Kirsty Williams, pleading for a better deal for schools across the country.

The First Minister faced questions from Mr Davies in the chamber about the damning letter, which today described a ‘severe funding crisis’ in Welsh schools. Mr Davies demanded answers on why schools aren’t being equipped with the resources needed to support the next generation of learners.

Schools across Wales have struggled for decades under Labour-led Governments, with the situation reaching a crisis-point in the eyes of education experts.

Paul Davies stated, ‘I was pleased to meet with the local NAS branch and I took the opportunity to thank them for the brilliant work they do on behalf of people living with autism and their families in Pembrokeshire.

‘The people of Wales have waited long enough’: Paul Davies quizzes First Minister for relief road answers

Welsh Conservative leader Paul Davies AM has urged the First Minister to stop ‘dithering’ over the M4 relief road, as the Welsh Labour leader admits he is yet to read inquiry findings.

Mr Davies has shone a light over the Welsh Government’s inability to make a decision over the future of the M4 relief road, despite having access to the findings of a £44million inquiry for months.

His question to the First Minister today (5th February), came in the week after 90 Welsh businesses wrote to Mark Drakeford AM, seeking urgent clarification on the issue of the relief road.
