Non-essential retailers in Wales ‘badly let down’ by Labour

Commenting on the First Minister's U-turn regarding the opening of non-essential retail, Welsh Conservative Senedd leader, Andrew RT Davies MS:

“Non-essential retailers have been badly let down today with this sudden U-turn by the Labour-run Welsh Government and it's going to put jobs across Wales at risk.

“Last month, the First Minister gave a clear indication shops would be given the green light to resume trading at this review, but today he's bizarrely claiming he did no such thing.

“Firstly, Labour must stop treating the hardworking Welsh public as fools when such commitments were made for all to see on national TV.

“Secondly, today's sudden U-turn reinforces the need for a clear long-term roadmap out of lockdown that helps protect jobs and cuts such confusion for families, workers and businesses in Wales.”
