The Welsh Liberal Democrats will expose an example of the waste and inefficiency of Labour and Plaid Cymru in government on each day of the Welsh general election campaign
Back in 2009, the Labour-Plaid government came under fire from business leaders and politicians for spending more than £300,000 on staff “away-days” during the economic downturn.
Among the most expensive individual events, revealed by FOI were:
· an away-day for human resources staff at the Miskin Manor – a luxury hotel on the outskirts of Cardiff – costing £16,177
· a health department meeting to “improve effectiveness”, which cost the taxpayer £11,024.57;
· visits by members of the Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service to the Falcondale Mansion Hotel, Lampeter, at a cost of £6,124.45.
