I think the Welsh Assembly has put its money where its mouth is.

0:00:130:00:17

What's really exciting in Wales was something that the Labour Assembly

0:00:200:00:24

felt very passionately about and made sure came into being

0:00:240:00:28

and that's Flying Start.

0:00:280:00:31

I think the Flying Start scheme is very important

0:00:310:00:34

for my sons are now going through,

0:00:340:00:37

and I think it's really important

0:00:370:00:39

that we maintain a very high standard of education

0:00:390:00:43

because that's the only way we open up doors for opportunities

0:00:430:00:47

for our next generation.

0:00:470:00:48

I think it's absolutely fantastic what the Welsh government is doing,

0:00:510:00:55

protecting students in Wales from these higher fees,

0:00:550:00:59

because they've seen what a boost it's been to the Welsh economy

0:00:590:01:02

and general wellbeing for young people in Wales

0:01:020:01:05

that they've had the chance, like me, to go to universities.

0:01:050:01:08

Through Jobs Growth Wales, they're creating opportunities for young people

0:01:080:01:13

and trying to make sure that when people finish university,

0:01:130:01:17

that there are jobs there for them.

0:01:170:01:19

I'm a passionate believer that health should be free.

0:01:210:01:24

Labour Assembly sees that prescriptions should be free for all

0:01:240:01:29

and it's just a further commitment to health and improving health.

0:01:290:01:34

I don't think we should underestimate just how important free bus passes are.

0:01:360:01:41

It's not just about travelling from A to B,

0:01:410:01:44

but it's about encouraging people to get out

0:01:440:01:48

and socialise and meet people.

0:01:480:01:50

Labour are delivering in Wales,

0:02:060:02:10

in health, though the challenges are huge,

0:02:100:02:12

they're committed through free prescriptions,

0:02:120:02:15

changing the ways that GP surgeries open to respond to people's needs.

0:02:150:02:21

They're responding to education, really delivering an education,

0:02:210:02:26

and are really showing the way, particularly in early years

0:02:260:02:29

and at the other end of the scale, to keeping tuition fees low.
