Swansea AMs Julie James, Rebecca Evans and Mike Hedges have praised the Welsh Labour Government for its ambitious legislative programme.
The AMs welcomed the legislative priorities for the year ahead, which the First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones, set out in a statement to the Welsh Assembly on Tuesday.
The statement contains five bills:
• Regulatory Reform of Registered Social Landlords Bill;
• Public Health (Minimum Price for Alcohol) Bill – pending the Supreme Court judgement;
• Childcare Offer Application Processing Bill;
• Fees Charged to Tenants in the Private Rented Sector Bill;
• Local Government Bill.
Julie James AM for Swansea West commented:
“The Welsh Labour Government continues to make Wales a better place to live and work, where prosperity is shared, where public services are protected and where the next generation are given the best start in life.
We are working to build a Wales that is healthy and active, prosperous and secure - an ambitious learning nation that is united and connected.”
Gower AM, Rebecca Evans added:
“Over the past year I have been pleased to take the ground-breaking Public Health Wales Bill through the Assembly in my Ministerial Role - it is due to become law next week. The Bills announced today promise to further deliver on the pledges we set out in our ambitious manifesto last year.”
Swansea East AM, Mike Hedges added:
“The Welsh Labour Government continues to deliver on important issues for my constituents such as childcare and the fees charged by letting agents often to those who can least afford to pay.”
