Shadow Minister welcomes plan for wales to receive a freeport

The Shadow Minister for Economy, Russell George MS, has warmly welcomed reports that Wales is to receive a free port.

He said: “Freeports will generate jobs, trade and innovation, and I welcome the fact that Wales is set to get one from the UK Government.

“Given this announcement will undoubtedly attract investment from around the world, I find reports of the Welsh Labour Government dragging its heels over this positive plan—and in the same breadth insisting that the UK Government pick up the whole tab—very concerning.

“I fear Welsh Labour Government Ministers are playing party politics. Instead, I urge them to embrace such a dynamic plan.

“A freeport for Wales reveals that the UK Government is delivering on its pledge to build back better than ever before.”
