    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.

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.

    Jenny Willott, the Welsh Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, has commented on the disruptions to train services between Cardiff and London Paddington, which started on Saturday and led to train services being cancelled today due to signalling problems.

    Jenny Willott MP said:

    "I'm very disappointed that the disruption caused to passengers travelling between Cardiff Central and London, which began on the weekend, has continued today and led to the cancellation of trains. I know that some people were delayed up to an hour and half on Saturday because of signalling problems and it's very important that First Great Western solve any issues as soon as possible so further delays are avoided and people can get to where they need to go on time."
