Labour calls on the Tories to give Brecon and Radnorshire by-election

IN response to the successful recall petition in Brecon and Radnorshire, Welsh Labour is calling on the Conservatives to immediately move the writ in Parliament and give the people of Brecon and Radnorshire their chance to hold the Tories to account – and reject the austerity-supporting Lib Dems.

A Welsh Labour spokesperson said:

“The recall result is another huge blow to Chris Davies’ credibility to serve as Member of Parliament. This is a mess all of his making.

“The Conservatives must not drag their feet. They should listen to the wishes of the voters of Brecon & Radnorshire, call an immediate by-election and let the people hold them to account.

“Nine years of Tory Austerity – enabled by the Lib Dems in the Coalition Government – have pushed communities to breaking point. The people of Brecon and Radnorshire deserve a Labour MP who will work every day to make a real difference in their lives. And Wales needs a Labour government in Westminster that will end austerity, invest in our public services and stand up for our people.

“This is the message that we will take to the people of Brecon and Radnorshire in the coming weeks.”
