Responding to the Economy Minister's statement on the support offered to steel firm Rowecord, Shadow Business Minister Nick Ramsay said:
– Nick Ramsay AM, Shadow Business Minister
We welcome the offer of support from the Welsh Government - although I fear this may be too late in the day to be of practical help.
We hope that Ministers will leave no stone unturned in helping to save as many jobs as possible and support the highly skilled workforce in securing rewarding employment.
This sad news emphasises the need for the Welsh Government to develop a clearer strategy to support Wales’ manufacturing industries, which are struggling in this challenging economic climate.
