Lightweight annual report is fig leaf for failure

Commenting on the publication of the Welsh Government’s Programme for Government Annual Report, Andrew RT Davies AM, Leader of the Opposition, said:




"This annual report is nothing more than a fig leaf to cover the monumental failure of a tired and lazy Welsh Labour Government, which under Carwyn Jones, has run out of steam.




"This document glosses over appalling waiting times in the NHS due to Labour’s record-breaking health cuts, fails to report on the progress of Enterprise Zones to secure economic growth and ignores the recent PISA tests which will lay bare performance in literacy and numeracy.




"Unfortunately, Carwyn Jones’ sole preoccupation in the past year has been to play the whingeing part of an opposition to the UK Government rather than getting on with his job of delivering.




"This lightweight document sums up a year of talk and no action from Carwyn Jones and represents a missed opportunity for an honest, warts-and-all assessment of progress in tackling the deep-rooted problems facing the people of Wales.




"This annual report simply confirms this administration’s status as a lazy Labour Government."
