The Economy Minister has written to Tata steel's interim chairman to find out what changes at the top of the company will mean for its plants in Wales.

Ken Skates says the replacement of Tata's chairman and plans to consider the appointment of new Directors raise issues for Wales.

He says he's written to the interim chair, Ratan Tata, to find out what the impact might be.

I have written to Mr Ratan Tata to seek clarification on what these senior level changes mean for the future of Tata’s operations in the UK and in particular, the plants in Wales. I have also reiterated that the Welsh Government remains fully committed to delivering action to help secure a sustainable and long-term future for steelmaking in Wales.

– Ken Skates AM, Economy Minister
