What discussions has the Welsh Government had regarding the collapse of Herald News UK Ltd with the loss of 24 jobs and three papers distributed in the west?

Answered by Minister for Economy and Transport Answered on 30/10/2019

We were naturally very concerned to hear about recent developments within the company, although it was encouraging to hear that some jobs will now be safeguarded.

The Welsh Government will do all it can to support the workers affected by this disappointing news. Our ReAct programme has a strong track record of supporting individuals impacted by job losses and this is available alongside support from local partners and organisations including Careers Wales and Jobcentre Plus.
