Elis-Thomas: Plaid reshuffle 'dream appointment'

Dafydd Elis-Thomas has issued the following statement after being moved from Energy to Rural Affairs:

This is a dream appointment for me, as all aspects of this portfolio are reflected in Dwyfor Meirionnydd, which I represent, and the county of Conwy where I live. I am also delighted to continue to chair the important Assembly Committee on Environment and Sustainability which includes scrutiny of the Government’s policy on Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.

I must also take this opportunity to thank my constituency party and Plaid members, particularly in Dwyfor Merionnydd, for their nomination and generous support in the recent Plaid leadership campaign, and I am grateful to our new leader Leanne Wood for this opportunity to serve and support her as part of her Shadow Cabinet.
