Commenting on the news that 700 jobs have been lost in Anglesey due to the closure of 2 Sisters chicken plant, Welsh Conservative Leader, Andrew RT Davies MS said:
“The closure of the 2 Sisters Llangefni site, resulting in 700 jobs being lost, is devasting news for the people of Anglesey and North Wales.
“With the chicken processing plant contributing massively to the economy of Anglesey over the last 50 years, it’s crucially important that those impacted receive the support that they need, and also deserve.
“Nevertheless, I know the hard-working Member of the Parliament for Anglesey, Virginia Crosbie MP, will be working tirelessly with both the UK Government, and Anglesey Council, to ensure we see new opportunities brought to Anglesey. We also need to see support brought forward from the Welsh Government.
“Nevertheless, we have already seen great work in action from the UK Government and Virginia Crosbie MP, with the fantastic news of a freeport being announced in Anglesey, which will bring much-needed jobs and investment to Anglesey and North Wales.”
