Questions over Cardiff Airport purchase

The Welsh Conservatives will today call on the Welsh Government to provide evidence that the purchase of Cardiff Airport will provide 'value for money'. They're holding a debate in the Senedd to ask for answers about the decision.

Last month the Welsh Government said that they had entered into an agreement with the current owners of Cardiff Airport, to look at the possibility of buying it. At the time they said: 'our investment in Cardiff Airport has the potential to create many exciting possibilities for the Welsh economy.'

The Welsh Government has been challenged to prove its plan to buy Cardiff Airport will be good use of taxpayers' money. A former senior executive at the airport has told ITV Wales it could take several years for it to become viable and profitable.
