  • Rhondda Tunnel Society Meeting

    January 12, 2018

    I was delighted to attend a meeting of the Rhondda Tunnel Society to hear about the progress they have made over the last 12 months. There were some spectacular photos on show, taken inside the tunnel just last month. The society has also put together a new promotional video showcasing the community benefits re-opening the tunnel would bring. I am greatly looking forward to discussing the project with representatives of the Heritage Lottery Fund, when they attend my funding fair on Friday 26 January.

It is vital we have a proper process to secure best deals for Britain and to support industry.

    January 09, 2018

    As Parliament reconvened after the Christmas recess we hit the ground running with the Taxation (Cross-border) Trade Bill. This seeks to establish a new post-Brexit trade defence regime, but as I said in my speech in the House, in it's current form it would fatally undermine the British manufacturing sector, including the steel industry in my Aberavon constituency. You can read my speech below.
