|Jeff Rees, Plaid Cymru Prospective Parliamentary candidate for Torfaen|
Now more than ever the Welsh National interest has to be defended, we need to take our destiny in our own hands and create a strong Welsh economy that can fund strong Welsh Public Services, Plaid Cymru is the only party that can do this.
I will fight for Wales to be granted its own immigration visa system. This will ensure that where the Welsh Government identifies a skill shortage in the Welsh economy those needs can be met, while protecting the jobs of those already in employment in Wales, making sure our wages cannot be undercut.
I will fight to cut VAT on home renovation costs. This would lead to a renaissance in the Welsh construction sector helping turn our country’s fortunes around - creating jobs, increasing wages and securing people’s standard of living. Torfaen's ageing housing stock offers ample opportunities for work.
I will fight to keep the British Government's hand off our NHS. Its one of Wales's greatest achievements and it would be my duty to defend and strengthen it, keeping it in public hands opposing the British Government, who are desperate to privatise it for profit given any opportunity.
