Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader and MP for Brecon and Radnorshire Jane Dodds has today met with UK Government Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Wales Kevin Foster.
Jane Dodds used the meeting to urge the UK Government to deliver a truly ambitious Growth Deal that transforms the Mid Wales economy.
Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds MP said:
The Welsh Liberal Democrats have consistently supported City and Growth Deals across Wales, and have long been clear that the Mid Wales Growth Deal must be just as ambitious as the deals secured for Cardiff and Swansea.
We have the chance to truly transform transport and broadband across Mid Wales; whilst supporting and nurturing a thriving business community. This is an opportunity Mid Wales cannot afford to miss out on.
I’m grateful to the UK Government for today’s meeting, I hope they will take my comments on board. I look forward to continue working with the UK Government to deliver the transformative Growth Deal Mid Wales deserves.
