Natasha has been named the Welsh Conservative’s Shadow Minister for Transport and technology and is working passionately to see the creation an all Wales travel card similar to the Oyster card in London. She hopes it will allow everyone in Wales, as well as tourists to travel on public transport all over Wales, with transparent and affordable fares on a better public transport network and hopes it will provide a well needed boost to the Welsh economy.
She has always been passionate about making a difference and strongly believes one should ‘not just talk the talk, but they should walk the walk too.’
