    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, today asked the Home Secretary about the progress being made on introducing exit checks at all UK borders.

    The last Labour Government abolished exit checks in 1998, which means we don't know who has left the country when their visa has expired, and has led to holes in the immigration system. Liberal Democrats within the Coalition Government have pushed hard for exit checks to be reintroduced.

  • Post Office
    Article: Dec 19, 2014

    Dear Sir,

    Local Post Offices are right at the heart of our communities and provide a vital service for vulnerable and elderly residents across Cardiff.

    That is why I am delighted that Liberal Democrats have thrown a crucial lifeline to Post Offices that that will help keep the network strong, as well as support the disabled and elderly people who rely on the post office network. I know from speaking to local people that many rely on the post office for important services, like collecting their pension, getting their tax credits or for basic banking services.

  • Coding with primary school children
    Article: Dec 15, 2014

    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central has said today that Conservatives on either side of the border would slash funding for schools, nurseries and colleges.

    Figures published today show that, under Conservative plans, the education budget would be cut by over £13bn in England. This is similar to in Wales where, under the Tories' plans in the Assembly, the education budget would be cut by 12%. According to independent analysis from the Assembly Members' Research Service, these cuts could result in nearly 10,000 teachers losing their jobs in schools in Wales.
