“Alongside that I will be working on growing the investment that Wales needs to improve prosperity for everyone.

“There is huge potential for Wales to contribute to securing the UK’s long term energy needs. Offshore wind, nuclear and renewable energy are all areas where Wales can play a vital role.

“I want to work collaboratively to make sure Wales continues to be a strong partner in the United Kingdom and continues to benefit from our place in the Union.

“I promise to be a strong advocate for Wales around the Cabinet table, doing all I can to promote the interests of the people of Wales.”
