WASTE WATCHERS – Day 2

Peter BlackThe Welsh Liberal Democrats will expose an example of the waste and inefficiency of Labour and Plaid Cymru in government on each day of the Welsh general election campaign.

In 2009, the Welsh Liberal Democrats revealed that between 2006 - 2009, the Labour-Plaid government 'lost' 31 laptops, 10 blackberry devices and six mobile phone causing concern about wasting tax payers money and data protection issues.

The cost of replacing the 31 laptops was approximately £22,800, the 10 BlackBerries £2,500 and the six mobile phones £720, all at the expense of the Welsh tax-payer. This is just another example of waste in the Labour-Plaid government.

Peter Black, Welsh Liberal Democrat South Wales West Assembly Candidate said:

"During the Welsh General Election campaign, the Welsh Liberal Democrats will expose the waste and inefficiency of the Labour-Plaid government over the past four years. When every family, charity and business is having to make every pound stretch that little bit further, Wales needs a government that does the same. Labour and Plaid Cymru have made waste, incompetence and inefficiency into an art form.

"In the last Assembly term, the Welsh Liberal Democrats had a very strong record of holding the Labour-Plaid government to account on wasteful spending. We want to root out waste and inefficiency in government so that we have a lean and efficient government to deliver our policies on the economy, health and education."
