Welsh Conservatives question Cardiff Airport purchase

Leader of the Welsh Conservatives Andrew RT Davies has questioned the Welsh Government's decision to buy Cardiff Airport, suggesting the money could be better spent.

What we need to see is proper investment in establishing the kind of routes that will attract passengers, and in properly promoting Wales as a tourist destination to the rest of the world.

Elsewhere in Wales neo-natal services are being cut because the local health board cannot find £4 million – is this the best way to spend £52 million of taxpayers’ money?
