Plaid Slams Court Closures


Plaid Cymru has hit out at the Westminster government's decision to close ten courts in Wales, including the Neath and Port Talbot Civil and Family Court.

Swansea West Assembly candidate Dr Dai Lloyd said that the move was another example of the arrogance of London rule of Wales.

"While Scotland and Northern Ireland have their own jurisdiction, the courts of Wales are controlled by Westminster - and this is the result", said Dr Lloyd, a Swansea GP.

"It is high time for Wales to take decisions about its own affairs, and that includes police and criminal justice."
