We were told by the leaders of the Leave the EU Campaign that a deal to leave and a trade agreement would be quick and easy. Those leaders are now either senior Tory Government ministers or failed ex-ministers. They are presiding over the most chaotic UK Government in living memory. The stakes are high for our communities and for our country.Read More
I led two extensive delegations to meet government ministers and local company representatives from REHAU. It was a cross party delegation which included the university and also specialists on the regional economy. We met both the secretary of state for BEIS (Business Energy and Industrial Strategy) Greg Clark, secretary of state for Wales, Alun Cairns. Also present were ministers of state, MPs and officials to focus on the Anglesey and north Wales economy. On the agenda were the suspension of Wylfa Newydd and the possibility of enhancing projects identified in the north Wales growth deal and sector deals in the UK Governments industrial strategy. It was important to present a united approach from Anglesey with local and Assembly politicians and myself as the MP working with local, Welsh and UK governments. Greg Clark agreed to visit the Island and work with us to enhance the economy.Read More

We had another series of Brexit votes to break the Parliamentary deadlock and it led to another government defeat. The Prime Minister still tells us she is carrying on with her flawed deal. Frankly she is simply running down the Brexit clock and trying to tweak her flawed deal and put this and a possible no deal with the EU before Parliament. Playing chicken with this serious issue.Read More
