Welsh Conservative Shadow Finance Minister, Nick Ramsay MS, has called the Welsh Government’s draft budget “a missed opportunity to build back better” and has “failed to deliver a recovery plan for Wales.”
Commenting on the draft budget Nick Ramsay MS said:
“This budget is clearly a missed opportunity to build back better and represents more of the same from this tired Welsh Labour Government.
“The Welsh Government had an opportunity today but has failed to deliver a recovery plan for Wales.
“Instead of promoting aspiration and opportunity, they want to go back to taxing homeowners when they buy a house worth between £180,000 and £250,000.
“And instead of supporting our young people by giving them the funding they need, the Welsh Government is spending £8.3 million on curriculum reform in Wales, and not delivering the basics to improve our education rankings on the UK and international stage.
“Wales deserves better. The Welsh Conservative have a recovery plan for Wales to deliver more jobs, better hospitals and first class schools.”
