Department for Work and Pensions

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has indicated that he is “strongly opposed” to the closure of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) office in Claude Road, Caerphilly.

The Caerphilly closure is part of a Government plan to close 103 DWP offices across the country. Contrary to standard practice, Wayne David, as the local MP, has not been informed of the closure plans and has written a strongly worded letter to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.

Mr David said “I am very concerned that the Government are planning to close offices and reduce the number of staff. The Caerphilly office  in Claude Road provides an important ‘backroom’ service. Closure of the office will be a blow to the economy of Caerphilly town and will hugely inconvenience staff if they have to travel further afield to work.

“The Government has admitted that they expect around 700 DWP staff across the country to lose their jobs and they have refused to rule out compulsory redundancies. My concern is that there could be job losses in Caerphilly. I am therefore calling on the Government to think again about their closure programme.”

GE Aviation

Wayne David, MP for Caerphilly, is delighted with the news that GE Aviation based in Nantgarw will benefit from a £20 million investment to service the latest state-of-the-art jet engine, the GE9X.

Wayne David said, “Although GE Aviation is based in Nantgarw, many residents from the Caerphilly constituency are employed there. 

 “This investment will offer job security well into the future.  GE Aviation is an important employer and this large investment shows that the company has confidence in the workforce. This really is good news for the area”

Keith Reynolds

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has responded to the decision of Keith Reynolds to stand down from the leadership of Caerphilly County Borough Council and not seek re-election as a councillor for the Aberbargoed Ward.

Wayne David said "Caerphilly Council is one of the best local authorities in Wales, providing good quality services and value for money. The proposed very small increase in the council tax in Caerphilly is, in large part, due to Keith's sound and determined leadership.

 “He will be missed as Leader of the Council - and the people of Aberbargoed in particular will miss him. Local government will be without someone who has enormous commitment and experience."
