The Prime Minister is expected to tell the Welsh Conservative conference that his government's economic plan is working here in Wales. He'll cite as proof that employment is rising faster in Wales than in any other part of the UK.
On creating new private sector jobs – the plan is well and truly working. Just listen to this. In this past year, we have seen the fastest increase in employment here in Wales than in any other part of the UK. Yes, you heard me right. Wales – which lost out in previous recoveries...Wales – which so often got left behind...Wales has, in the past year, seen a faster increase in employment than any other part of the UK.
Faster than London. Faster than the South East. The UK capital for jobs growth is right here in Wales. That’s because we have a serious long-term plan – and that plan is working. So I want everyone here in this hall to hold their head high and be proud to say this: The Conservatives are back in Government...and we are getting Wales back to work.
