Jenny R, Jenny W and Nick Clegg with policeCommenting on the news that South Wales Police have been named the slowest in the UK for responding to most serious 999 calls, Jenny Willott, MP for Cardiff Central, has said,

"I'm very disappointed by these figures, which show a worryingly high number of unanswered 999 calls in South Wales.

"If the call is answered, my constituents are still having to wait an unacceptably long time for the police to turn up.

"However, I know South Wales police are very much aware that this level of response is not good enough. Steps have been taken and I hope the move to the new public service centre will show significant improvements."

"I will certainly be monitoring the situation, and will be pushing for concrete action if this is not the case."
