Plaid Cymru published their election manifesto yesterday It contains few detailed proposals in relation to welfare benefits.

Plaid Cymru say they will press for welfare powers to be devolved to allow them to make changes to a wide variety of benefits..

However, there are very few concrete examples of the changes they would actually make, although they do say they would:

  • Introduce a new £35 a week payment for every child in low income families.
  • Introduce a new tax credit of up to £25 a week to households paying over 30% of their income on private rent.
  • Permanently remove the bedroom tax.
