250 achievements from your Labour Assembly Government

Building a better Wales is about building a Wales that is fairer, stronger and greener. Labour has worked, and will continue to work, with the people of Wales to build a country that is successful, confident, and ambitious.

Building on the Welsh Economy

Labour is proud to have been the party to have delivered unprecedented levels of economic stability and prosperity. The Welsh economy now has strong foundations in place for future success. Since 1999, Wales has seen the biggest drop in unemployment of any part of the United Kingdom and a rise of 140,000 in the total number of new jobs – clearly demonstrating the difference that the Labour Assembly Government is making, and will continue to make, to the lives of the people of Wales.

Building on the Welsh NHS

Labour is and always will be the party of the NHS. We have doubled investment in the NHS and today there are more nurses, doctors and dentists, and better patient care and falling waiting times. We are working to encourage people to lead healthier lives. This has included introducing free swimming for pensioners in all local council swimming pools and free swimming in local council pools during school holidays for school children.

Building on Education

Education and skills are at the heart of our vision for a fairer and more prosperous Wales. In Wales our investment in education has resulted in the highest ever levels of achievement in our schools. We are committed to ensuring that we have the skills for success in the future and for every child and every adult to have the opportunity to realise their full potential.

The most corrosive legacy left by the Tories was the level of child poverty in Wales. Welsh Labour will take action to eradicate child poverty by 2020.

Building Safer & Stronger Communities

Labour is committed to making our communities stronger and safer for all. Labour in Wales has always been ready to take the tough decisions to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour. We have worked tirelessly to tackle anti-social behaviour problems in our communities and have supported local communities in tackling environmental crime, by taking action to remove litter, graffiti and making our streets safer. Today there are almost 1,000 more police officers and over 600 more Police Community Support Officers.

Building a better Environment

Since 1999 Labour in Wales has increased investment in improving local environments and opening up Wales’ stunning natural environment to all. We will continue to meet head on the challenge of climate change, building a sustainable, cleaner and greener Wales. We have been a global voice in combating climate change, helping to put Wales at the cutting edge of the drive to a more sustainable future.

The above are only some of the changes that we have made to the lives of the people of Wales. Welsh Labour in Wales will continue to build upon and work towards a better, prosperous and fairer society for all of us to live in.
