HELEN Mary Jones MS for Mid and West Wales has responded to the news Airbus will cut 1,700 jobs in the UK, Plaid Cymru MS and Shadow Minister for the Economy, Tackling Poverty and Transport, Helen Mary Jones said,
“My thoughts are with all the staff of Airbus in Broughton and their families during what must be a very difficult and uncertain time.
“Whilst the Westminster Government has a responsibility to support key industries during this unstable time, where has the Welsh Government been? What steps are they taking and what support will they offer to these workers?
“The Welsh Government must show that they are thinking strategically in both the long and short term on how best to support the economy in the wake of the impact of the Coronavirus.
