Catch up with some of the issues and campaigns that I am working on in the region.
|Tourist Information Centres
Veronica has campaigned relentlessly to keep all of the TICs in Monmouthshire open with staff.
|Caerleon Heritage Site
Cadw have recently decided that they will not be renewing their funding for the heritage site in Caerleon.
|Incinerator in Merthyr Tydfil
Covanta, a large American energy company, are planning to build and operate a 750,000 tonne-a-year incinerator in Merthyr Tydfil.
|Lost Ambulance Hours
Shocking figures uncovered by the Welsh Liberal Democrats have revealed that tens of thousands of hours of emergency ambulance cover are being lost in Wales.
The campaign to use credit cards on the Severn Bridges is soon to bear fruit after many years of highlighting the issue.
Plans for a tidal barrage across the Severn Estuary have recently been put on hold by the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition.
|Ebbw Vale Railway
The real problem is that trains have to pass each other between Cross Keys and Llanhilleth. At present this a single track section so you can only get one train an hour up to Ebbw Vale.
Veronica believes that it would be a good idea to build a spur off of the M48, between Caldicot and Rogiet, which would then mean Welsh commuters can drive straight to Severn Tunnel Junction and get the train.
|Newport Passport Office
Veronica German has written to Home Office Minister Lynne Featherstone and Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan expressing her deep concern regarding the possible closure of the Newport Passport office.
|Aneurin Bevan Health Board
Five years after the government’s endorsement of a new way to deliver health services in the greater Gwent area with more emphasis on delivery in the community, patients are still waiting.
Veronica believes that Wales should have its own anti-stigma campaign such as ‘Time to Change’ in England and ‘See Me’ in Scotland.
