Plaid Cymru calls for urgent action on Double Dip Recession

Plaid Cymru has called for urgent action from the Labour government following the news that Wales is back in recession.

Plaid Cymru Economy Spokesperson, Alun Ffred Jones AM, said:

“Plaid Cymru has long been warning that Wales was in danger of falling back into recession and we have made repeated calls for the Labour government to wake up to the reality of this.

“Plaid Cymru has called again and again for capital investment in new schools, hospitals and infrastructure in order to boost the economy, create and protect jobs and protect Wales from this economic storm. But again and again, this lethargic Labour government has refused to heed these calls, preferring instead to sit back and do nothing.

“I am calling on the Labour government to now reconvene the economic summits as a matter of urgency in order to bring government, business and workers together to find a way forward to help Wales weather this economic storm.”
