Plaid Cymru Assembly candidate for Blaenau Gwent, Nigel Copner, has criticised the Labour Welsh Government's "amateurish approach" to handling the funding of the Circuit of Wales in light of breaking news that the government will not underwrite funding for the project.
Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood has said that the Welsh Government has an opportunity to make devolution count as Wales faces the biggest industrial crisis since the Assembly was established. Leanne Wood said that her party had put options on the table to support the industry and help secure a lasting future for the steel industry in Wales.
As the National Assembly prepares to reconvene today to discuss the future of the Welsh steel industry, Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood has insisted that action must be taken to ensure the election does not get in the way of resolving the crisis.
Plaid Cymru has hit out at the Labour Welsh Government after one of its members told the Financial Times he had known since Christmas that Tata had little intention of keeping its UK steel business going.
