Plaid Cymru launch campaign as Starmer defends Labour’s record in Wales

Home Affairs Correspondent

Ciaran Jenkins: ‘ Sir Keir Starmer defended his party’s record in office in Wales and backed embattled First minister Vaughan Gething in his visit to Abergavenny this morning.

Mr Gething has had a rocky start to his tenure, with continuing questions over a £200,000 donation to his leadership campaign.

The visit coincided with Plaid Cymru’s leader – Rhun ap Iorwerth – launching his party’s campaign, where he accused Sir Keir of taking Welsh voters for granted and also vowed to pick up seats at the expense of the Conservatives.’
