The Wales Green Party today published its manifesto for the 2024 general election. In the manifesto, the party is proposing to introduce a ‘Just Transition’ to tackle the climate and nature emergencies, through a ‘Green Economic Transformation’ to a ‘Wellbeing Economy’.

Among the policy commitments made in the document are a pledge to bring public services back into public ownership, to increase Universal Credit by £40 per week, abolish the two child benefits cap, build at least 12,000 homes per year in Wales and to push for the UK to join the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

In his opening marks to the manifesto, the leader of the Wales Green Party Anthony Slaughter said: “Tired ‘business as usual’ politics is failing our communities. Westminster isn’t working. Wales deserves better.

“We have the radical, bold policies needed to create a fairer, greener future for all.”

Meanwhile, one of the party’s deputy leaders Phil Davies said: “The UK is one of the most unequal states in Europe. We cannot afford to continue down this path. We need real hope and real change! We need a party with the bold and transformational polices to make a better and more equal future for everyone in Wales.”
