Responding to the news story today that WLGA are concerned about Welsh Government cuts to bus services.
Welsh Conservative Shadow Transport Minister, Natasha Asghar MS said:
“The Labour administration in Cardiff has failed to engage with communities across Wales, they have slashed bus services while grounding the country to a halt with a 20mph speed limit.
“Instead of funding vital bus services that local people rely on the Welsh Government has decided to spend £200 million on a failing airport. Labour appears to have forgotten that over two thirds of public transport journeys in Wales are by bus, not jets from Cardiff Airport.
“Alarm bells should be ringing in Cardiff as two Labour council leaders complain about the ‘tone’ the minister Lee Waters has taken at their discussions with him. The Labour Government must finally listen to local leaders; it cannot continue to rule with their vanity projects as their priorities.”
