Ceredigion’s Welsh Liberal Democrat MP Mark Williams has welcomed the news this week that Assembly Members voted overwhelmingly in favour of Kirsty Williams’ ‘More Nurses’ bill in the National Assembly.
In December 2013 Kirsty Williams AM was successful in the National Assembly’s ballot to introduce backbench legislation. Her proposal would see Wales become the first country in the UK with a legal duty on safe nurse staffing levels.
Commenting, Mark Williams, said:
“This significant vote brings safe staffing levels in all of our hospitals a step closer. We’re all fed up of hearing bad news stories about our NHS here in Wales. This Bill offers Wales to lead the way in the UK on this issue, and I am delighted that it is the Welsh Liberal Democrats and our leader Kirsty Williams heading up the fight for better healthcare in Wales.
