BUDGET: 'Good for Cardiff' says Lib Dem MP

Welsh Lib Dem MP and Government Whip Jenny Willott says her Cardiff Central constituents will benefit from the Budget.

This Budget is good news for Cardiff. The Chancellor announced that our city will receive £12 million for ultra-fast broadband, and that Westminster will work with the Welsh Government to look at electrification of the Valleys railway lines.The Coalition is doing all this whilst making sure that rich pay more. The Government is introducing measures that mean the richest in society will pay five times more than they currently do through the 50p highest rate of tax. This Budget has the Lib Dems stamped all over it.”
