Welsh Secretary: 'UK and Welsh Governments must work together'

Secretary of State for Wales Cheryl Gillan has welcomed the latest employment statistics, but warned there is still "a long way to go" to improve challenging economic conditions.

Wales is not immune to the uncertainties caused by the eurozone and what is essentially a complex and challenging labour market at the moment.

The unemployment rate in Wales continues to be an indicator that we must strive to do better, to work together as two Governments to create the right conditions for growth so that Wales can attract the investment and prosperity it needs.

– Secretary of State for Wales, Cheryl Gillan MP
