Tom Davies has been re-selected as the Labour Party's parliamentary candidate for Brecon and Radnorshire in the next General Election.

Mr Davies stood for the seat at the by-election this year, coming forth behind the Liberal Democrats, Conservatives and the Brexit Party.

Mr Davies has criticised Jane Dodds MP and after she abstained on a Labour motion to protect the NHS from privatisation last night (Wednesday, October 24). He said: "Only labour will stand up and protect our NHS".

Labour were joined by the SNP, Plaid Cymru and the Green Party in backing the move. However, all 19 Liberal Democrat MPs abstained on Jeremy Corbyn's motion. The Conservatives voted against it and the bid lost by 310 votes to 282 votes.

Mr Davies said: “Jane Dodds and the Lib Dems have proven that, just like the Tories, they can’t be trusted with our NHS. Despite promises during the by-election campaign that she would support our NHS, Jane Dodds has failed at the first hurdle.

“When it matters, the Lib Dems back the Tories time and again.

“People in Brecon and Radnorshire know that Welsh Labour will always stand up for our NHS, with the Welsh Labour Government protecting the NHS against privatisation levels seen in England. We created it, and we will defend it from the Tories and the Lib Dems who want to sell it off.”
