Among other measures, the agreement calls for the creation of a Welsh public construction company for social housing and the establishment of a Welsh public energy company. The deal also provides for progress in the study for the creation of a National Care Service, and both parties have committed to agreeing an “implementation plan” by the end of 2023.
The Labour-Plaid deal also envisages several measures to strengthen the Welsh language, especially with regard to its use in schools with the introduction of a Welsh Language Education Bill, as well as by the government administration.
Measures against climate change and to limit second homes are also envisaged.
Labour (30 seats) and Plaid (13) have a large majority in the 60-member National Assembly for Wales.
However, Plaid will not join the government, which will be made up exclusively of Labour members.
