– Huw Lewis AM, Merthyr Tydfil & Rhymney
It is deeply worrying to hear that the Linde factory here in Merthyr Tydfil are consulting on 203 job losses.
Should the closure of the plant go ahead, it would be a major blow to the local economy and has the capability of causing considerable hardship upon its employees and their families.
I know that the Welsh Government has been keen to provide business with every possible assistance during these difficult times and I have urgently written to the Welsh Government seeking their assistance. I will be also meeting with management and trade unions in the near future.
Two hundred and three jobs are under threat at a factory which makes forklift trucks in Merthyr Tydfil, as the owners announce plans for its closure.
