New figures show error of triumphalism on Welsh economy - Randerson

2009 Medi 16 3:54 PM

Commenting on new figures showing that Welsh unemployment is rising again after a small dip in previous months, Welsh Lib Dem Shadow Economy Minister, Jenny Randerson AM said: "We warned Rhodri Morgan and Ieuan Wyn Jones not to be triumphant about previous figures as everything pointed to the fact that rises in unemployment had already restarted at that time. "Wales has been left badly placed to ride out this recession. This Government is not building a resilient jobs market with a strong private sector and these figures show that is urgently needed. "Hopefully this Government will learn its lesson and not return to bragging about their handling of the Welsh Economy when these figures show that more and more Welsh families and workers are suffering."
