Andrew RT Davies MS, Welsh Conservative leader in the Senedd, has responded to the reshuffle of the Welsh Labour Government that has taken place this afternoon.
Andrew RT Davies MS said:
“As we move out of the pandemic, Wales faces huge challenges.
“Protecting jobs, tackling the waiting list backlog, and ensuring our children catch-up on their missed education will require the Welsh Government to strain every sinew.
“As the official opposition, Welsh Conservatives will scrutinise and hold ministers to account, but will also offer the hand of cooperation where possible to ensure Wales bounces back from the most difficult year we’ve experienced.
“And it’s in this spirit that I want to wish the First Minister and his new cabinet well as they start the significant task of ensuring our economy and public services get on the road to recovery.
“We’re proud Welsh men and women, and ultimately we need the government to succeed in the next couple of years if we are to see Wales turn the page on one of our most difficult chapters.”
