    Dear Sir,

    As both a Liberal Democrat and a mother, I am extremely proud that from next April new parents will be able to share leave in order to look after their new child.

    That means that couples finding out now they are expecting a baby will be able to start planning for a more flexible way of sharing the new responsibilities of being a parent.

  • Coding with primary school children
    Article: Sep 1, 2014

    As schools in Cardiff go back this week, Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, has said that infant pupils and their families will be worse off because the Welsh Labour Government has failed to adopt the free school meals initiative being promoted in all schools in England.

    The Lib Dems as part of the UK Coalition Government have introduced the policy so that from September 2014 every child aged from five to seven years old in an infant school in England will get free school meals, saving families over £400 a year per child. However, despite receiving extra money from Westminster to follow suit, the Welsh Labour Government has decided to spend the money elsewhere.

    Dear Editor,

    In response to the article on 24th August 2014 about Cardiff joining the Core Cities Group, it is about time that Cardiff Council saw the bigger picture in bringing in investment for our city and Wales.

    In 2011, the Coalition Government's introduced the Localism Act, which gives local councils and local communities in England greater powers and more control over housing and planning decisions. The Act enables the UK's biggest cities to make the case for being given new powers to promote growth and set their own distinct policies for investment.
