A deficient plan for defining times, says Plaid Cymru.
Responding to the Queen’s Speech, Plaid Cymru’s Westminster leader, Liz Saville Roberts, said:
“The Prime Minister’s legislative programme is focussed far more on soundbites than substance. It is a deficient plan for defining times. The UK Government has been completely exposed as having no majority, no mandate and now no plan.
“The UK Government has neglected its duty to present a legislative programme for all four countries in the UK. Despite a vague reference to working with devolved Parliaments to build consensus, there was not a single commitment to deliver for Wales. Warm words will not protect the Welsh economy.
“Plaid Cymru will seek to significantly strengthen this legislative programme by placing a series of amendments, including on policing, national finances and fuel poverty, with the Welsh national interest at their heart and to ensure that the legislative programme reflects the challenges facing the whole of the UK . We would urge all other Members from Wales to join Plaid Cymru in challenging the Tories’ hollow promises.”
