The Welsh Liberal Democrats have announced Alistair Cameron as their candidate for Mid and South Pembrokeshire at the next general election.

Having grown up in the area and currently living in Stepaside, Alistair who has served as County Councillor for the Kilgetty and Begelly ward on Pembrokeshire County Council since 2022, said he was ‘honoured’ to be selected as the prospective parliamentary candidate for the new Mid and South Pembrokeshire constituency, stating that he would work ‘tirelessly towards a better and fairer deal for Pembrokeshire’.

Alistair has worked as an English teacher at a further education college, in human resources in the electricity industry, and as Council Leader of an English Borough Council.

He is a governor at three local schools and has been active in learning Welsh, recently starting an advanced language course.

Cllr Cameron sits on PCC’s Schools and Learning and Social Care Scrutiny Committees, and acts as the council’s Learning Disabilities Champion.

He’s worked on many local issues including - improving road safety, upgrading play areas, maintaining accessible footpaths, preserving bus services, and collaborating with the police and council to address antisocial behaviour.

With his long record of public service and strong connections to the local community, he said he aims to be a dedicated, compassionate advocate for the people of Pembrokeshire.

“The cost of living crisis has hit Pembrokeshire hard, with child poverty rates among the highest in Wales. As your candidate, I am pushing for quality local jobs that offer fair wages to help families get by,” he said.

“Additionally, I aim to urge the UK Government to boost support for offshore wind and green hydrogen industries off our coastline, creating skilled, sustainable employment for our region.

“Residents across Pembrokeshire are frustrated with long waits to access healthcare under the Labour-led system, whether seeing a GP, finding an NHS dentist, or getting hospital treatment for serious illnesses.

“I will fight for improved accessibility to vital service, pushing for life-saving treatments like radiotherapy to be readily available for all local residents who need them.

“I will also push to remove obstacles created by the current European trade deal, ensuring future agreements uphold high standards for health, the environment and animal welfare.

“I am committed to preventing our local farmers and food manufacturers from facing unfair competition. They need a fairer and more workable farming payment scheme than the one currently proposed.”
