Opposition leader Andrew RT Davies will use his conference speech in Swansea to announce that he's setting up a commission to look at ways of providing what he calls 'proper, affordable childcare.' He's appointed Shadow Education Minister Angela Burns to head the commission. He'll tell delegates:
I want parents across Wales to look at the Welsh Conservatives and see a party that “gets it” and is doing something about it.
I want young people across Wales to look at the Welsh Conservatives as a party leading the way for aspiration.
So today, I’m pleased to announce that my Shadow Minister for Education, Angela Burns has set up a Commission to look at how we can provide proper, affordable childcare.
Following on from some of the great work already undertaken by the UK Government in this field, Angela will work with professionals from representational organisations and business to see how we can help parents across Wales to be as aspirational for themselves as they are for their children.
Engagement in real policy development is the only way we can sell ourselves as the party that ‘gets it.'
The Assembly's Opposition Leader is expected to tell his party's conference in Swansea that Wales 'feels more removed than it has ever been' because of Labour's dominance of Welsh politics. Andrew RT Davies will accuse Carwyn Jones' party of thinking 'they have a divine right to rule in Wales.'
In a jibe at a lack of major changes around the cabinet table, he'll say that 'some of [Labour's] ministers amongst the longest continuous serving ministers in the Western World. They'd make some of the Eastern Bloc waxworks proud with their longevity!'
The conference takes place at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea.
