IMG_4872Commenting on her promotion to Shadow Wales Secretary, Nia Griffith MP said,

“I am very honoured to be asked to take on the role of Shadow Welsh Secretary, building on the work of my predecessor Owen Smith, who is now Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary and working alongside him and fellow Welsh Labour MP, Chris Bryant, Shadow Leader of the House.

“Jeremy Corbyn has surpassed all expectations with his resounding victory in the Labour Leadership contest, and it is vital now that we all get behind him to fight for what we all believe in – a fairer and more equal society. In Wales the Welsh Labour government have a fantastic record of delivery and I look forward to working closely with Jeremy, Carwyn and the entire Welsh Labour team to deliver another Labour victory in Wales this May and beyond.

“I am proud to be part of a strong shadow cabinet that will work tirelessly to expose the Tories’ callous approach and will be standing up for Wales against their plans to slash support to working families, muzzle trade unions and make it harder for working people to win a fairer deal at work.”
