    The Welsh Labour Government has revealed to universities this week that it is scrapping the Financial Contingency Fund for higher education students.

    This fund gave support to over 5,000 university students last year, with over £2million being handed out to fund books, childcare and disability costs for students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Universities are now expected to make alternative arrangements to support students, but have been given less than a month to do so by the Welsh Labour Government before the new academic year begins.

    Following the publication of the Public Accounts Committee's report on the subsidised air service between Cardiff and Anglesey, Aled Roberts, Welsh Liberal Democrat member of the Public Accounts committee and Assembly Member for North Wales, said:

    "The Welsh Liberal Democrats would scrap this wasteful and polluting subsidy. This costly venture does little to address the real problems of public transport links between North and South.

    The Welsh Liberal Democrats have reacted with concern to reports that money meant to support disadvantaged children is being used to plug holes in school budgets.

    The Pupil Deprevation Grant gives schools £918 for every pupil on free school meals, and should be spent on improving literacy and numeracy skills. The money was secured by the Welsh Liberal Democrats in budget negotiations with the Welsh Labour Government last year.

    Yn ôl Aled Roberts AC, Llefarydd dros y Gymraeg...

    Mae ymgyrchwyr iaith yn dweud yn gyson bod angen inni ddiwygio'r system gynllunio i ddiogelu'r iaith. Ond yn natganiad y Prif Weinidog heddiw, ni roddwyd unrhyw ystyriaeth i'r angen i gynghorau lleol adolygu eu cynlluniau datblygu er mwyn ystyried yr iaith Gymraeg. Mae'r ffaith ni fydd nifer o gynghorau lleol yn gwneud hyn am nifer o flynyddoedd yn gwastraffu'r cyfle i ffurfio cymunedau Cymraeg cynaladwy yn yr ardaloedd hynny.

    Dywed Aled Roberts, AC Gogledd Cymru...

    Mae 'na wedi bod angen ar garchar yng ngogledd Cymru am nifer o resymau. Ers imi fod yn arweinydd ar Gyngor Wrecsam rydw i wedi bod yn gwthio'n galed ar gyfer carchar yng ngogledd ein cenedl. Mae'r cyhoeddiad heddiw yn golygu bydd hi'n digwydd oherwydd Democratiaid Rhyddfrydol a'r Llywodraeth Glymblaid.

    Commenting on a leaked report from 2007 that detailed many criticisms and recommendations that featured in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's (OECD) report published earlier this month, Aled Roberts, Welsh Liberal Democrat Shadow Minister for Education, said:

    "The OECD's report published earlier this month was a damning indictment of Welsh Labour's fifteen-year failure to get to grips with education in Wales. To now discover that many of its findings and recommendations had already been raised with the Welsh Labour Government over six years ago is astonishing.

    Commenting on the findings of WJEC's Internal Review into this January's GCSE English Language Unit 1 and 2 results, Aled Roberts, Welsh Liberal Democrat Shadow Minister for Education said:

    "Barring inconsistent work by one examiner, the review found that papers were marked both accurately and consistently. Where that has not been the case, it is absolutely right for WJEC to re-mark that particular examiner's work.
