  • Kirsty has long campaigned for improvements on the Heart of Wales Line
    Erthygl: 2011 Medi 27

    Kirsty Williams AM for Brecon and Radnorshire has today called on the Labour-run Welsh Government to make a decision as quickly as possible on when it will be possible for concessionary pass holders to use their passes on the Heart of Wales line.

    Kirsty Williams said: "Every year concessionary pass holders have to play a waiting game with the government as to when, and if they will be able to use their passes on the Heart of Wales line. In rural Powys with an underdeveloped public transport network, it is more important than ever that concessionary fares are available again on the Heart of Wales line."

    Brecon & Radnorshire's Welsh Liberal Democrat Assembly Candidate Kirsty Williams and MP Roger Williams have expressed their firm opposition to changes to councillors' allowances at Powys County Council, which are being proposed as a result of the change from a 15-member all-party Board to a 10-member Cabinet system. The change may see Cabinet members' allowances rise by nearly £4000 each. The full Council will vote on the issue at the end of April.

    Commenting on the matter, Kirsty Williams said:

    " While I fully acknowledge that the change to a Cabinet system at the Council, which I fully support, will result in an increased workload for Cabinet members, at a time when the Council's staff and all public sector workers are facing a pay freeze at best, increasing any members' allowances at this time is inappropriate. It would be much better if any change is deferred until the start of a new County Council after the local government elections in May 2012."

    Supporting Ms. Williams's position, Roger Williams said:

    " I very much hope that the Council will amend this proposal at its meeting at the end of April. There will be a new Council after May 2012 and until that time members' allowances should in my view remain as they are now."

    Brecon and Radnorshire AM Kirsty Williams has piled pressure on the Welsh Assembly Government to make sure that the turntable fire unit currently based in Llandrindod Wells is not removed as currently planned.

    Kirsty raised the issue in the Assembly to the Business Minister asking that the Minister for Local Government and Social Justice looks into the issue as a matter of urgency.

  • Erthygl: 2011 Mawrth 31

    Brecon and Radnorshire AM Kirsty Williams has expressed her concern about inaccuracies in business rates demands.

    Kirsty Williams said: 'At present, most business premises in Wales with a rateable value of up to £6,000 receive 100% relief until 30 September 2012. It has come to my attention however that a number of incorrect business rate demands have been sent out to small businesses in Brecon and Radnorshire. These demands have shown only a small proportion of rate relief, not the 100% that should be available for businesses with a rateable value of less than £6,000.'
