    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, has welcomed a report from the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) which includes recommendations on how to improve living standards.

    The CBI report includes calls to help families by increasing free childcare and echoes plans already set out by the Liberal Democrats to extend free childcare to 15 hours a week for all children from two-years-old.

    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, believes the Autumn Statement provides for local residents in Cardiff Central and proves that the Lib Dems are building a Britain where everyone is given the opportunity to get on in life.

    The Autumn Statement highlights the Coalition Government's strategy to deal with the deficit, which has enabled the Government to pay for key Lib Dem priorities, including increasing the Personal Allowance to give basic rate taxpayers a further tax cut of £120, abolishing Employer National Insurance Contributions for apprentices aged under 25 and cutting stamp duty for the majority of people buying houses.

  • Coding with primary school children
    Article: Dec 3, 2014

    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, today asked the Welsh Minister about ensuring parents in Cardiff can access free childcare in a way that suits them rather than Cardiff Council.

    Jenny Willott MP has spoken to local parents who find it hard, if not impossible, to access their entitlement to 15 hours free childcare because the system in Cardiff is so inflexible. Many working parents in Cardiff are therefore not getting their 15 hours free entitlement and are paying the full cost themselves. As a result, they are worse off than they would be in England.

    Dear Editor,

    The Government has set up the "Accessible Britain Challenge", to encourage us all, whether individuals, shops, businesses or disabled organisations to work together to remove the barriers that disabled people face in our local communities.

    I'm sure we can do more to make Cardiff a much better place for people with disabilities to live. There are already many organisations working to do this, but the Challenge encourages all of us to play our part. According to people with disabilities, shopping is the most difficult experience, followed by social activities like going to the cinema, theatre or concerts. Pubs and restaurants are third on the list

  • Jenny Willott MP at carers stall
    Article: Dec 2, 2014

    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, has said that more needs to be done to support the 7,087 carers in Cardiff Central who are unsung heroes of the system.

    New research by Carers UK shows that there are 2,320 people who begin caring annually in Cardiff Central and there are around 6.5 million unpaid carers in the UK who provide care and support to family, friends and neighbours, saving the country an estimated £119 billion each year.

  • Jenny Willott MP STOPAIDS parliamentary event
    Article: Dec 1, 2014

    To mark World AIDS Day, Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, has voiced her support for renewed UK leadership in the push to end the global AIDS epidemic by 2030.

    Jenny Willott MP met campaigners at the STOPAIDS parliamentary event and spoke with them about how far we have come in tackling the AIDS epidemic. In 2008 Jenny volunteered with VSO in a TB-HIV project in Lusaka in Zambia, so has seen first-hand the barriers and stigma facing many in developing countries who are HIV positive.

    Article: Dec 1, 2014

    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, joined volunteers at the Tesco store on Albany Road to participate in a neighbourhood food collection with FareShare Cymru South Wales.

    FareShare Cymru South Wales aims to help vulnerable groups, whether they are homeless, elderly, children, or other groups in food poverty within the local community. They take the surplus edible food and drink from the food industry and distribute this between their Community Food Members, including homeless shelters and luncheon clubs.

    A "zero tolerance" approach to spitting in the street from Cardiff's ruling Labour group has been dubbed a laughable failure by local Liberal Democrats.

    The policy, introduced a year ago, would have seen offenders fined £80 if they were caught spitting in the street.

    Now, enquiries by Cllr Judith Woodman, leader of Cardiff's Lib Dems on the Council, have revealed the crackdown has resulted in the grand total of no fines.
