The Prime Minister Theresa May – on her first visit to Wales since her appointment by the Queen – has today met Wales’s Conservative Leader Andrew RT Davies (AM South Wales Central)  at the National Assembly for Wales with Secretary of State for Wales Alun Cairns (Conservative MP for the Vale of Glamorgan).

Andrew R T Davies discussed with the Prime Minister the future of the nation’s steel industry, and the importance of the draft Wales Bill to the devolved settlement.

He also raised the importance of North Wales being at the heart of any plans to revive northern economies, the role rail electrification will have for the Welsh economy, and the  impact that action on the Severn Bridge tolls will have for stimulating business and investment in Wales.

After the meeting Andrew RT Davies said “The new Prime Minister has shown her commitment and dedication to Wales with a visit so early in her premiership, and she is clearly a fantastic advocate and champion for our country.”
