Awaiting first consideration


This petition was submitted by David Oddy, having collected a total of 270 signatures.


Text of Petition:                    

The Welsh Labour Government are paying some unaccompanied asylum-seeking children £1600 a month as part of a basic income pilot scheme for young people who leave local authority care.
What about people struggling on far less who have paid their taxes and contributions all their working lives.
This must not be allowed and smacks of a hollow promise to attract votes.
