    Following the publication of an report into the Welsh Liberal Democrat flagship Pupil Deprivation Grant, our Shadow Education Minister Aled Roberts writes...

    It is encouraging to see that this Welsh Government-commissioned report has identified a number of positive indicators to show that the PDG is having its intended effect. Particularly, there is evidence to show that a significant amount of new activity has been undertaken to support disadvantaged pupils; there has also been a culture change in schools which has improved the way they tackle disadvantage and monitor impact.

    The Welsh Liberal Democrats have welcomed the Welsh Government's U-turn on its plan to introduce table valuations for cattle culled under the bTB eradication programme and to embrace instead the Welsh Liberal Democrat position of maintaining the present system.

    In the Senedd this afternoon the Welsh Government has made a statement where they have decided to stick with the current system after completing a consultation earlier this year which reintroduced the option of a table valuation system. While such a system would have reduced Welsh Government costs, it would also undervalue Wales' best cattle and see farm incomes further reduced.
