Vaughan was present as Welsh Labour officially launched their campaign for the elections to the National Assembly of Wales yesterday. Having already launched its main pledges, the Western Mail described the day as a 'buoyant start' to Welsh Labour's campaign, reflecting a rising poll lead and the well-attended campaign launch.

Welsh Labour has pledged:

  • Free childcare for working parents of three and four year olds
  • Tax cuts for all small businesses in Wales
  • 100,000 quality apprenticeships for all ages
  • New treatment fund for life threatening illnesses
  • Double the capital limit for those going into residential care
  • An extra £100m to improve school standards

Vaughan said "It was a great start to the official campaign. We have a talented group of candidates and committed volunteers working for a Welsh Labour victory on the 5th May. Our central message is that this is a choice as to who speaks for Wales and who leads Wales and this reflects many of our doorstep conversations. It is very clear that Carwyn Jones is the strongest and best respected party leader in Wales. That’s what voters tell us on the doorstep. I’m looking forward to working together for Wales for another five years of Welsh Labour leadership."

I picked up a copy of Eastern Chatter on my recent visit to the current Eastern High.

I’m delighted that the Welsh Labour Government has decided to invest more than £20m in the future of east Cardiff.

I have been a consistent supporter of the campaign for a brand new school for east Cardiff. It has been a long running campaign working with elected representatives and the community.

I am particularly keen to make sure that the new school is a genuine community school so that new learning sport and leisure facilities can be made available to the wider community.

This will deliver a modern state of the art school which is what the people of east Cardiff deserve.

The new school building is one of a number of projects being progressed under Cardiff Council’s overall 21st Century Schools Plan. The Welsh Labour Government and Cardiff Council will jointly fund over £40m for the new school which will replace the existing Eastern High building. It will provide in excess of 1200 places for pre-16 learners and up to 500 places for post-16 provision, delivered by Cardiff and Vale College.
