Responding to the Government’s Comprehensive Spending Review Nia Griffith MP is very concerned about people in the Llanelli area keeping their jobs, keeping their homes and staying safe.
Nia explained “The Government’s cuts are too deep and too fast, taking a dangerous gamble with our economic future and people’s jobs. Without growth it’s impossible to get the deficit down. If the Government throws people out of work, it costs us all more. So, to get the deficit down, our starting point must be jobs. Cutting back on public sector spending also has a severe knock on effect on private sector jobs, as many workers, such as construction workers depend on doing work for the public sector. These cuts taking some £81 billion out of the economy will seriously slow down the recovery. This is a dangerous gamble with our economic future and people’s jobs.”
