“Transparency is crucial, especially so when talking about Betsi Cadwaladr” – Rhun ap Iorwerth MS

FOLLOWING a request from Plaid Cymru’s health spokesman Rhun ap Iorwerth MS for the Health Minister Eluned Morgan to clarify her claim that the Ernst and Young report had been commissioned by Betsi Cadwaladr ‘on advice from the Welsh Government’, Ms Morgan has today corrected the record.

Responding to the correction, Plaid Cymru’s health spokesperson, Rhun ap Iorwerth MS said:

“I wrote to the Minister when I heard her initial comments. They didn’t ring true. And now we know it wasn’t – Welsh Government did NOT advise Betsi’s audit committee to commission this report – the independent members in that committee did so because they could see there was something wrong. These are the independent members that were later effectively sacked. In correcting the record today, the Minister again highlights what an injustice that was.

“Transparency is crucial, especially so when talking about Betsi Cadwaladr, and whilst I’m glad the Minister agreed to set the record straight, faith in that transparency has been undermined again here.”
