The Aberavon MP, Hywel Francis, has decided to stand down at the next general election. He's held the seat since 2001.
The Aberavon Constituency have thanked him for his hard work:
He's campaigned on many issues, including the new Swansea University Science & Innovation Campus which is set to open in 2015.
Dr Hywel Francis has announced that he will not seek re-election as the MP for Aberavon in the 2015 General Election.
Having served the constituency since 2001, Dr Francis said:
Aberavon MP Hywel Francis says he's had cross-party backing from other MPs from steel-making areas to push for a meeting with the Prime Minister. It follows last week's news that Tata steel is to cut more than 500 jobs at its Welsh plants.
The cuts would mostly affect Tata's Port Talbot plant which is in Hywel Francis' constituency. He says he and other MPs will push for an urgent meeting with David Cameron.
