Newport East


Paul Halliday is a property manager and a local Minister who has been a part of Newport’s community for over 10 years. Passionate and honest, he has been leading on some of the major campaigns in Newport and Severnside.

When the University of South Wales announced that Caerleon Campus was set to close, Paul called on the Welsh Labour Government to reverse this decision.  The asset stripping and run down of Newport’s University has had a detrimental impact on jobs and the local economy.  Paul called on Labour’s Council leaders, AMs and MPs to act – but they sat back and did very little.

When Newport’s Labour Council threatened to criminalise rough sleeping, Paul spoke out against this crude and discriminatory plan.  Paul’s campaigning lead the Labour Council to drop this proposal, which failed to address the needs of rough sleepers and would simply reinforce prejudice against some of the most vulnerable in society.

Paul has fought to keep Newport’s libraries open, protecting local heritage, scrapping of the Severn Bridge tolls and for improved transport links.

After 17 years of the same Labour face in Newport East and Severnside in the Welsh Assembly, it is time for a change.  We need somebody that will fight our corner and be vocal for our area.  Paul Halliday is that person.  Vote Paul Halliday.
