Responding to the 2018 Budget, Plaid Cymru Leader, Adam Price said:
“This was a fantasy pre-Brexit Budget based on imaginary numbers. Growth remains below two percent for the foreseeable and with the Brexit cloud still looming large these figures may still be very optimistic.
“Lurching from the top of the growth tables to the bottom, the UK economy teeters on the brink of crisis - a decade after the great recession.
“Wales remains an afterthought for Westminster, with transformative infrastructure projects in our nation scrapped for the sake of feeding the overheating economy of the south east of England.
“The only place austerity is set to end is in the rhetoric of Westminster politicians. The people of Wales will be feeling its impact for years to come.”
