A statement from Paul Davies MS, Chair of the Senedd’s Economy, Trade and Rural Affairs Committee

“Tata Steel’s announcement is devastating news for the community of Port Talbot and everyone in Wales who relies on the industry, including those who work at Tata’s downstream sites in Llanwern and Trostre. Our thoughts in the Senedd are with the workers, their families and the wider community.

“We as a Committee are planning to hold an urgent session, calling in Ministers to get to the bottom of unanswered questions and to get assurances on the support available to people affected.

“Last year the Committee spoke to unions about possible job losses in Welsh steel and we heard about the terrible impact it would have on the plant’s workers, their families and their community, as well as the consequences for the wider supply chain.

“We will do all we can to get answers for those affected.”
