Welsh Labour's campaign for the Westminster election gets underway this morning with First Minister Carwyn Jones unveiling five pledges.
- A "real living wage" of £10 per hour and investment to create jobs
- Protecting the NHS and social care budgets
- Keep free school breakfasts and invest more in school standards
- 853 more Welsh police officers and increase victims' rights
- Provide 20,000 more affordable homes in Wales
With the exception of increasing the national living wage and the pledge on police numbers and victims' rights, they are all promises about what the Welsh Government will do, rather than what Labour would do in power at Westminster.
Mr Jones will attempt to build on Welsh Labour's better than expected performance in the local elections, despite the loss of control of three councils. He believes Labour must try to move the political debate away from the question of whether Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn should be Prime Minister.
