Responding to the news of 3,000 redundancies at Tata Steel’s Port Talbot site, Plaid Cymru MS for North Wales Llyr Gruffydd said:
“This is a heartbreaking hammer blow for thousands of Tata workers and their families, and it doesn’t represent the just transition that Governments in London and Cardiff tell us they want to see.
“I’m seeking urgent clarity on what impact this decision will have on Tata Steel‘s Shotton Works in my region. Nearly 95% of its feedstock comes from South Wales.
“Any reduction in that supply will clearly have a knock-on effect and the company must give urgent clarity on whether the announcement on Port Talbot will impact its workers in North Wales.”
