In Cardiff both phase 1 and phase 2 applications for financial support for Creative Freelancers were oversubscribed in less than an hour. This is unacceptable.
I raised concerns in phase 1 and I have once again written to the Lord Daffyd Elis-Thomas to express my frustration that many in Cardiff North have missed out yet again and to request that this is immediately rectified.
As a capital city, many more freelancers come to Cardiff than elsewhere. A pro rata approach based on need across local authorities would have reflected this. I will continue making interventions on this issue until this is put right.
