Vale Senedd candidate Matt Smith criticised the Labour Welsh Government for its longstanding policy of underfunding the Vale of Glamorgan.
The Welsh Government’s budget settlement for 2019-20 left the Vale more than £600 per school pupil worse off than the Welsh average.
Shockingly, a teachers’ association has found that 92 per cent of Vale schools had their per-pupil funding cut by ministers in Cardiff Bay since 2015.
This is despite the UK Government providing Wales with £120 per person for every £100 per person spent in England.
Matt said: “I’m backing [local MP] Alun Cairns’ Fair Funding for the Vale campaign to ensure our communities get their fair share of public funding."
