Plaid's Manifesto - 7 Promises
Plaid Cymru is making seven promises to the people of Wales.
1. Protecting the Welsh Budget
We will protect the money the government spends on health, education and care.
2. Plaid’s Living Pension
We will give our pensioners more money to spend on food and heating.
3. Caring for our troops
We want our soldiers to come home safely from Afghanistan, and we want them to be looked after properly when they arrive back in Wales.
4. Helping Welsh businesses
We will lend small businesses money to help them develop new ideas, to get bigger, and to create sustainable jobs in all parts of Wales.
5. An environmental action plan
We will help Wales face up to the challenge of the climate crisis with plans to improve railways, our food systems, and our energy use.
6. Proper powers to make a difference
Plaid wants the new Westminster government to agree to a referendum so that our National Assembly make much more of a difference to everybody’s lives.
7. Tackling the deficit and tackling irresponsible banks
We will protect the people who need our help by asking very rich people to pay a little bit extra . We will reform banks, and we will stop Government spending on nuclear weapons
