Welsh Government and opportunities for our young people
I thank our First Minister Mark Drakeford for his recent response to my representations about the need to provide opportunities for young people. In his replay Mark states:
“This government shares your concerns about protecting a generation from unemployment caused by coronavirus and we are poised to act quickly to support the most vulnerable”.
The First Minister also identifies some of the successful projects pioneered in Merthyr Tydfil e.g. the Aspire apprentice scheme as foundations on which further opportunities can be developed.
I am pleased that the Welsh and UK Governments are thinking about the next generation and here in Wales we have a god track record on which we can build further.
