Plaid's 'Plan C' proposals

Plaid Cymru has announced a series of proposals which it says will transform the economy. They've all been previously announced but party leader Leanne Wood says that brought together they offer an alternative both to the UK and Welsh Governments' programmes.

The proposals include:

  • Full implementation of Silk Commission recommendations
  • A ‘buy local’ campaign, including legislation to improve public procurement
  • A Business bank for Wales to support SMEs
  • A Green New Deal ... including a Green Skills Technical College
  • Support new infrastructure projects
  • Create apprenticeships and job opportunities by investing in training and working with both large and SME businesses and training providers
  • Promote co-operative and mutual forms of business, including social enterprises
