Commenting on the launch of the Conservative manifesto launch, Wyn Williams, Welsh Liberal Democrat candidate for Montgomeryshire said,

"The Conservatives have released a manifesto that will take Wales backwards.

"They claim to be concerned about the weak economy but wa Wyn Williamsnt to slash budgets for economic development and training at the very time when these areas need to be prioritised.

"They also claim to be concerned about school funding, after Labour and Plaid Cymru have allowed the funding gap to spiral to over £600 per pupil per year. However, their budget plans would increase it to an eye-watering £881.

"As well as this, they are threatening major infrastructure projects, such as the Newtown bypass, which will hamper job creation."
