Speaking after today’s Statement on the UK Steel Industry in Parliament today, Carwyn Jones said:
“I’m encouraged by the confirmation that a co-investment solution is being actively worked on by the Business Secretary. That is in line with the discussions I’ve had with the Prime Minister and the Chancellor. However, there were plenty of legitimate questions today for the UK Government, not least on tariffs and energy policy.
“I visited the Trostre and Llanwern works today to meet with local management and the trades unions. The visits simply underlined the fact that these are modern, productive plants with a committed and skilled workforce. We’ll continue to do all we can to protect this vital industry.”
