    I hope everyone saw the Guide Dog charity's bright yellow bus in Queen Street last weekend.

    Cardiff Central MP Jenny Willott has become one of 40 MPs from across the UK to champion the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and help beat cystic fibrosis for good.

    Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening inherited disease, affecting over 10,000 people in the UK. The disease causes the lungs and digestive system to become clogged with mucus, making it hard to breathe and digest food. There is no cure for cystic fibrosis but treatments are available to manage it.

    Dear Editor,

    I was pleased to read on 28th August that Mind Cymru has highlighted the need for more to be done to prevent people, particularly men, from ending up in hospital with a mental illness.

    One in four people are likely to suffer from a mental health problem at some point, which can have a long-lasting impact on their quality of life, affecting their work, their home life and their personal relationships. For far too long, mental health has not been given the attention it deserves and has unfairly been the subject of misunderstanding and discrimination.

    Cardiff's Lib Dems say a damning Welsh Audit Office report into the city's performance reveals Labour's failure of leadership since it took over running the Council in 2012.

    The report's scathing attack on 'fragmented leadership and management" has heaped pressure on Cllr Phil Bale, leader of the council.

  • Jenny Willott MP at tesco
    Article: Sep 2, 2014

    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.
