Commenting on a business support announcement by the Welsh Labour Government, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for the Economy, Paul Davies MS said:
“Any additional support for Welsh businesses is welcome but it is once again regrettable that such a statement is given to the press before the Welsh Parliament.
“Sadly, businesses are still paying the price for Labour’s broken promises during the Senedd election and it’s therefore vital this money makes it way to firms as quickly as possible so Welsh jobs can be protected.
“As we’ve seen with previous business support announcements, the devil is always in the detail, and the minister should address Parliament today to outline the size of the support, the qualifying criteria and his plans for a recovery fund.
“With the vaccine protecting more and more lives each and every day, it’s important the Labour-run Welsh Government now provides a detailed timeline out of restrictions as we’ve seen in Scotland and England so businesses can recover from the toughest period they’ve ever experienced.”
