Over the past few weeks I have been speaking with the good folk at Plaid Cymru, who have now been selected to ask a question about WILG to the First Minister at the Senedd on Tuesday at 13:30. The question has been tabled by Llyr Gruffydd AM and is composed as follows:
Will the First Minister make a statement on support for claimants of the Welsh independent living grant following its cessation?
I look forward to seeing how the First Minister responds to this question and any follow up questions that Llyr Gruffydd AM has prepared. While I don’t like talking about the end of WILG, I think that Plaid’s tactics are spot on here and the question should lead to an interesting series of responses.
I have received a link where you will be able to view the questions being put to the First Minister. You can access the link here.
This is brilliant news as it keeps the #SaveWILG campaign firmly in the spotlight and we are currently working on other ways that we can protest as we enter Spring. If you have any ideas of ways we can urge the Welsh Government to reconsider the appalling decision to close the Welsh Independent Living Grant, please get in touch.
