Commenting on the announcement that 1,200 jobs are at risk of redundancy at the National Trust charity, the Shadow Minister for Culture, David Melding MS, said:
“The National Trust is of immense importance to Wales, given its many hallmark sites employs a large number of people and attracts substantial tourism.
“Today’s announcement that 1,200 jobs are at risk is a serious blow and my thoughts are with all those affected.
“The charity desperately needs to make £100 million in savings because of Covid-19, according to reports. For that reason I implore the Welsh Labour-led Government to initiate dialogue with the charity on possible support to halt potential job losses.”
