    William Powell, Welsh Liberal Democrat AM for Mid & West Wales, and Jane Dodds have written to the Chief Executive of Openreach to complain about the standard of service constituents frequently receive from his Company.

    William said:

    "My Mid and West Wales Regional Office in Montgomeryshire has dealt with a number of people who have had to wait weeks for their phones to be reconnected, for engineers to finally keep appointments to install fibre connections for broadband and dealing with their real problems contacting BT to report faults. An elderly member of my own family had continuous problems with her telephone line, so I know of this at first hand."

    The Welsh Liberal Democrats have welcomed the news that the BBC has agreed to protect S4C's licence fee funding until 2018.

    In a letter forwarded to Aled Roberts AM, Welsh Liberal Democrat Spokeperson on the Welsh Language, Rona Fairhead, BBC Trust Chairman, makes clear that she is making a pledge to continue providing the £74.5m per year from the BBC for the 2017-18 financial year, in order to provide stability while the UK Government reviews the Broadcaster's wider future.

  • Lloyd George
    Erthygl: 2016 Chwef 17

    The Welsh Liberal Democrats are calling on the Welsh Government to make the Lloyd George Museum part of the National Museum to safeguard its future, following news that Gwynedd Council is deferring the decision until 2017 as whether to close it.

    The Plaid Cymru-led Gwynedd Council had planned to withdraw funding for the Museum in its 2016/17 Budget, but announced yesterday that the decision would be deferred until 2017. However the Council Leader, Dyfed Edwards, emphasised that the Council could not continue to run the Museum in the long term. This Year is the 100th Anniversary of Lloyd George becoming Prime Minister.

    One of the core values of the Welsh Liberal Party, that has always been central to the Welsh Liberal Democrats since our establishment, following the merger with the SDP, has been looking out for the elderly and the vulnerable - the vital importance of advocacy, on behalf of those whose voice would otherwise not be heard.

    William Powell AM for Mid & West Wales was delighted to find that elderly pacemaker patients from Montgomeryshire are able to have Pacemaker scanners at home after visiting the Princes Royal Hospital in Telford.

    William Powell AM, said

    "My Constituent was impressed that this stops a three hour plus round trip from Montgomeryshire and saves on parking and fuel. His 88 year old Mother will no longer be exhausted by the trip. This is an excellent scheme - very good for the patient and prevents unnecessary appointments at the hospital. It appears to be win, win - a great idea!"
