Public Services Not Private Profit Campaign In Wales

EDM number 1849 in 2007-08, proposed by Martin Caton on 19/06/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Civil Service, Employment and Industrial relations.

That this House recognises that public service provision in Wales has been undermined by privatisation, job cuts, inadequate pay and office closures; notes that more than 5,000 of the 70,000 Civil Service job cuts across the UK since 2004 have been in Wales; believes that privatisation, including the promotion of contestability and outsourcing, puts at risk the accountable and effective delivery of a wide range of public services; therefore supports the Public Services Not Private Profit campaign, which brings together trade unions across the public sector; and calls on the Government to introduce a moratorium on privatisation and to engage in a constructive dialogue about how the Government, the Welsh Assembly, local communities and the trade unions can work together to provide the high quality public services that people need.

This motion has been signed by a total of 6 MPs.
