MIKE HEDGES AM WELCOMES SUPPLEMENTRY BUDGET AR THE ASSEMBLY.

Speaking after the Assembly debate, Swansea East AM, Mike Hedges said…. This supplementary Budget is to be welcomed; the extra money which can be used for Council House building is going to be especially welcome to local authority such as Swansea who are committed to building more council houses.

As a School Governor I am especially grateful for the extra money for teacher’s pensions as schools would have been in a serious position if they had to find these extra contributions out of existing budgets. Nonetheless, it is still a concern that non-teaching staff pension contributions have to be covered out of existing budgets.

Despite these concerns this is a package of measures to be welcomed. I hope that Wales can be a come to location for battery technology in future years and I look forward to the development of this technology – in Wales.
