Two Clwyd West candidates to speak with Sixth Formers
27th November 2019

Two Parliamentary candidates will be visiting Rydal Penrhos this week to speak with Sixth Form pupils.

David Jones and Elfed Williams, who represent the Conservatives and Plaid Cymru, will hold two separate Question and Answer sessions with Year 12 and 13 on Wednesday, November 26.

The visits have been arranged as part of Rydal Penrhos’ Mock Election that coincides with the General Election next month.

This will give each pupil in attendance, which also includes some first-time voters, the chance to ask questions relating to policies and how they will impact the constituency and beyond.

Mr Jones has been MP for Clwyd West since 2005 and has held several ministerial posts in Westminster.

He is the first Welsh secretary to have served as an Assembly Member, and the first Conservative Welsh Secretary to represent a Welsh constituency since Nicholas Edwards (1979–87).

Mr Williams, a director of the CADMHAS mental health charity, was chosen to represent Plaid in Clwyd West and aims to address the Government’s Austerity policy by calling for more spending on the health service - with particular focus on mental health provisions and a lack of beds at the Ablett psychiatric unit at Glan Clwyd Hospital.

Senior School Head Sally-Ann Harding, said: “We are thrilled that Mr Jones and Mr Williams will be taking time out of their busy schedules to visit our Sixth Formers, which is sure to be a very informative afternoon.

“Hopefully the information they receive will be taken on board and used to form their decision both during the General Election or the Mock Election we are holding here at Rydal Penrhos.”
