Full statement

Educated through the medium of Welsh and a native Welsh speaker.

During this time I was involved in the Humanitarian relief of the Vietnamese boat people, Caught the tail end of the Angolian civil war, saw action in the Iran-Iraq war and operated between HMS Tamar in Hong Kong and Chile during the Falklands war.

Managing Director for Aerospace UK a finishing company for Lola cars, Cathay Pacific, Virgin Atlantic etc.

Retired in 2014 and won a case over speeding and as a result all traffic speed markings on the roads in Wales were changed as the lines were 3" too short.

Campaigned for the safeguarding of grass roots football in Carmarthenshire.

What's the most important thing that the Senedd should do in the next five years?

Be honest and transparent with the people of Wales.

Fast track restructure and rebuild the NHS incorporating medical centres for better primary care so that GPs have direct access to testing and X-ray facilities at the GP surgeries. Mental health, Minor operations and minor A&E facilities at these centres. GP,s Dentists, pharmacists etc all under one roof. This should reduce waiting time and be a more efficient service.

What will you do for your region if elected?

Address the pollution going into our rivers and have a safe coast line. This would create jobs both civil and mechanical. Along with cleaner water to promote leisure and hospitality industries as well as fisheries.

A rapid task force to address the growing number of pot holes. This would create jobs, giving hope to those that haven't worked in a long time.
