Last Friday I went with John Griffiths AM and Jayne Bryant AM to see the state of the art Zodiac plant at Llanwern which provides high-quality finished products for automotive customers including Jaguar, Land Rover, Nissan, and BMW. It was good to catch up with Reggie Gutteridge from Community and Mike from Unite too.

The steel industry is important to so many in Newport so it was good to see the class-leading work being done on the line at Llanwern.  I hope we will see much more investment at this site to help secure good quality jobs for our area in the future.

You can read the South Wales Argus coverage of the visit here.

It was a privilege to meet up with The Royal British Legion Wales Area team in Parliament last week to discuss support for the Armed Forces community in our area.

The Royal British Legion provides welfare assistance thousands of veterans, serving personnel and their families in Wales every year. It is also the national custodian of Remembrance, best known for its emblem the red poppy.

Last year in Wales, the Legion provided over £500,000 in grants to support members of the Armed Forces community and engaged with almost 6,500 people directly via its high street Pop in centres and community outreach. The Legion’s own handy van service ‘poppy calls’ also completed 2,350 jobs across Wales, helping people in their own homes to live independently and with the support they require.

I enjoyed meeting beneficiaries and staff from The Royal British Legion and learning more about the great work being done in Newport East and beyond. Members of the Armed Forces community make huge sacrifices in the service of our country, and I am proud to support the work of the Legion in honouring the memory of the fallen and building a better future for the living.

The UK Government has confirmed that it will publish a formal response to the public consultation on the future of the Severn Bridges this summer. In his reply to my written question on the consultation – which closed in March – Transport Minister John Hayes MP has stated that the UK Government are currently ‘analysing the consultation responses’.

Commuters and businesses across Wales will await the Government’s response to the consultation with interest. As I have long argued, it really is time we looked for a much fairer regime for people who live in Newport and south-east Wales and are being hit-hard by eye-watering tolls. There is a strong call, supported by the Welsh Government, to scrap the tolls altogether. If this Government are not willing to go that far, as indicated in the consultation, we should surely have a £1 maintenance-only toll.
