THE Welsh Government has announced that the former PM Gordon Brown is to join an external advisory group to advise on its plans to help Wales recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
The advisory group is intended to enable ministers to draw on expertise from outside Wales as it works out how to plan for a post-crisis future.
The Counsel General, Jeremy Miles is expected to give more details of the external advisory group when he takes the Welsh Government’s daily press conference later today (Wednesday).
In addition to Gordon Brown, two other prominent people have also been appointed. They are Paul Johnson director of the economics think tank, the Institute for Fiscal Studies and Dr. Rebecca Heaton a member of the Committee on Climate Change which advises the UK Government.
