Fitbits for all pupils, a review of taxes and a new national care service. Those were some of the most eye catching ideas from Labour leadership hopeful Eluned Morgan when she launched her manifesto this morning.
The Mid and West Assembly Member vowed to focus on job creation, promising a new body to attract inward investment. Though when pressed, she insisted it wasn’t replicating the Welsh Development Agency that Labour scrapped.
Eluned Morgan has said she’ll give up her seat in the House of Lords if she becomes First Minister, and went further today calling for the Lords to be elected and reflect the nations and regions of the UK.
She emphasised her call for a referendum on the final Brexit deal, but when asked about the one thing she admired about Theresa May, Eluned Morgan replied “her stubbornness.”
Eluned Morgan is running against Vaughan Gething and Mark Drakeford to become the next leader of Welsh Labour. The results will be announced in December.
