Speaking ahead of his visit, he said the choice at this election was between 'the Tories failing plan and Labour's better plan for working families.'

The Tories have failed working families because they choose to prioritise helping a few at the top. Labour’s plan is based on a simple truth: Britain and Wales succeeds when working families succeed.There are only two possible outcomes on May 7th - a Labour government that will work with the Welsh Labour government to deliver for local communities or a Tory government that will continue with their extreme spending plans.
