A Written Question submitted by the Welsh Conservatives has revealed that the Labour Government have budgeted £810,690 on marketing for the blanket 20mph speed limit roll out.
Commenting on the answer from the Deputy Minister, Welsh Conservative Shadow Transport Minister Natasha Asghar MS said:
“The madcap blanket 20mph policy is unwanted, unmandated and irresponsible. The people of Wales do not want to see costly bills for the rollout of this ludicrous policy.
“With awareness so low and £503,519.96 of the budget spent so far, it raises the serious question - what has the Labour Government been spending this allocated marketing budget on?
“This is clearly a very ill thought-out policy by Labour which will cost the Welsh economy £4.5 billion. The Labour Minister needs to urgently put a hold on the roll out of the default 20mph.”
