John Griffiths: .... It's a deliberate policy choice by the UK Government and it has led to wage stagnation as well as having many other, I would argue, harmful effects.

1. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Education — Postponed from 8 November: The Welsh Language White Paper (15 Nov 2017)

But what is important is that we keep our eye on this. It's a question of priorities. That is what Nye Bevan used to say—you have to just...

It does show that there are other...
