David Cameron: Welsh Jobs Top Priority

The Prime Minister says his main aim for Wales is to create more jobs.

In an exclusive interview with Heart, David Cameron has claimed the UK Government has listened to what the people in Wales want – and has delivered.

Mr Cameron said he cares about Welsh people:

“I think we’ve taken very seriously the asks and requests the Welsh people and politicians have made.”

“I think we’re delivering on the issues people care about”.

The Prime Minister says the coalition is making significant investments in Wales.

He says they’ve delivered improvements to the M4, have committed to electrifying railways in the South Wales Valleys and invested in the Wrexham “super prison” and nuclear power plant on Anglesey.

But Mr Cameron told Heart employment is his top priority:

“The most important thing is to stick to the long-term economic plan that is delivering more jobs in Wales and cutting unemployment in Wales.”

The Prime Minister said he wants to see 28,000 more people in work here than when he was first elected.

He added the economy is about individual people, but big infrastructure developments are needed in order to be a success in the “modern world”.

He claims that everything he is investing in will put Wales on the map.
