Welsh Lib Dem members vote to back deal with Labour in Assembly

Earlier today Liberal Democrat members in Wales voted to back the deal with Labour under which the party’s one Assembly member, Kirsty Williams, will become the Education Secretary in Wales:

The deal between Ms Williams and Labour agrees a list of nine common priorities which include pledges from the Welsh Lib Dem election manifesto such as limiting infant class sizes to a maximum of 25, extending a nurse staffing levels law, and funding an extra 20,000 affordable homes.

“I will be in government as a Welsh Liberal Democrat, guided by our values and commitments.” [Wales Online]
