The Welsh Government has issued the following response to the announcement that 270 jobs could be lost at the Aberpergwm colliery in Neath.
We are very disappointed with this announcement, which will come as a blow to the workers, their families and the local community.
"However, we are currently working with Walter Energy management to ensure that those affected by redundancy will be offered support via the React programme and to discuss how the Welsh Government officials can support the company.
In addition officials remain in discussion with Walter to explore additional support for the remaining workforce via the workforce development programme to address any skills gaps as a result of the redundancies."
