Speaking to a crowd of supporters at the Brangwyn Hall the PM said that he was proud of the work the coalition government had been doing to reduce the deficit and that while cuts were necessary they have not been as savage in Wales as they have been in England.

He also said that the government were continuing to look into the feasibility of a fully electrified line between London and Swansea.

Campaigners in west Wales were recently disappointed after it was announced the Great Western main line from Paddington would only be electrified as far as Cardiff.

Opening his speech he also paid tribute to north Wales Conservative AM Brynle Williams who died today at the age of 62.
