Hello, I'm Mike!

Welsh Liberal Democrat Candidate for Newport West

My Statement 

The Liberal Democrats are a centre-left political party, with a Welsh tradition going back to Lloyd George’s Liberal Party.

Dealing with Coronavirus is our main concern at present. The Welsh economy has been botched by Labour who have run the Senedd since it was formed. We need strategic planning to encourage businesses to invest in Wales, producing good quality work and pay. Investing in training and education is also key.

There is a housing crisis. Over 30 years the public housing stock has reached a record low. Buying houses is beyond the reach of many people. There are serious problems with the rental sector. Safe and adequate housing is a right for all.

Newport’s transport infrastructure has ossified, waiting 30 years for the M4 relief road. We have more areas of air pollution than anywhere else in Wales. We need radical solutions, to reduce the reliance on cars, by making public transport cheap and reliable.
