lucrative industrial jobs linked to his Ministerial work. The council also backed Brechfa West. They alone have also approved


another 12 476ft wind turbines at Brechfa Forest East. So, a total of 40 wind turbines,


each one only 49 feet shorter than Blackpool Tower, are soon to be erected on the hitherto totally unspoiled green hills surrounding the little village of Brechfa, whilst the council want to object to a few tiny solar panels on a farm outhouse! Incredible! The gargantuan wind turbines


will be visible from all high ground within a 40 mile radius - make no mistake! They will also have to be lit, since both the West Wales General Hospital and Dyfed-Powys Police HQ are at Carmarthen, only six miles from Brechfa, thereby greatly endangering both air ambulances and police helicopters. The lights will, of course, attract


birds to these gigantic revolving guillotines, including beautiful red kites, hawks and buzzards, in one of the most important wild bird areas in the southern UK. There will be carnage! By the way, the hundreds of


140-feet-long lorry loads needed to deliver the turbine parts will sporadically block the narrow roads around the hospital for three years! Have the councillors thought about


that?

MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES


DEAR SIR, The Prime Minister has missed


the point on mental health. The government lacks a comprehensive strategy to improve mental health services for the whole of society and Theresa May is blind to the fact that the Conservative Government’s own policies have had a detrimental effect on many people’s mental health. We want society to be more open


in talking about how many people experience mental health problems, how we can better help them and how we can help to alleviate the causes. To hear the Prime Minister saying that she will do more is to be welcomed but there are gaping holes in the

government’s strategy. With one in four people experiencing mental health problems, the government shouldn’t only focus on young people. Counselling services must be more widespread and accessible. There is a chronic waiting time to access counselling. Once individuals pluck up the courage to seek help, acting quickly to support them is critical. In Wales, there are extensive geographical problems involved


in some communities accessing counselling services. The Prime Minister shows no


awareness that Conservative policies over the past six years have harmed people. Benefit cuts have caused terrible stress for families and forced people into poverty and to rely on food banks. In public services, the government has proudly made savage cuts to spending, callously disregarding the community support


services that are forced to close as a result. We’ve lost 23,700 jobs in Welsh local government services thanks to the Tories; for the staff who remain, there is intolerable pressure to do more with less and keep services running. We want the government to be more honest and committed in its approach to tackling mental health problems.
