Addressing Welsh Labour’s Conference in Llandudno, Nia Griffith MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Wales, said:

“Together we are fighting for Wales in Westminster and taking on the Tories’ appalling treatment of our nation.

“Just imagine the price of a Conservative Government in Wales as well. We cannot let that happen.
So we need to tell families up and down the country about what our Welsh Labour Government is delivering. Investment in Wales, versus cuts from Westminster. Jobs for our young people, not leaving a generation behind.”

“That’s the difference that a Labour Government makes. Labour policies promised then delivered because we are in Government.

“So don’t listen to those who say we should be happy just shouting from the side-lines. That principled opposition is better than political power. If we take that attitude we may as well shut up shop.
“Labour changes peoples’ lives when we are in Government. The NHS. The minimum wage. The Welsh Assembly. These only happened because we were in power. So let’s fight to win, not for ourselves but for the people we represent.”
