First Minister: 'Tata's Welsh investment plans are being kept'

"I don't think any company can give any assurances as to the future, but what I can say about Tata is that they're absolutely open in terms of working with us" said First Minister Carwyn Jones.

"What's important is they're keeping on track their investment plans for the industry in Wales, which will help to make the steel industry more competitive in the future, despite the very difficult news many families are facing now".
