After the announcement by Ineos today, Tuesday 7th July, that they will be suspending their planned investment in both Wales and Portugal, Bridgend MP, Dr Jamie Wallis has voiced his determination to help do “all he can” to secure the investment.
Commenting on the news, Dr Wallis said: “I am disappointed and sad to hear the news that Ineos has suspended work on its planned investment in Bridgend which is a massive blow to the local economy and Wales as a whole.
“As I understand from the company, it is only a review at this stage and the impact of COVID-19 is the only reason we have been given so far.
“I have already spoken to the Wales Office and I am seeking urgent clarification about the implications of the future plant in Bridgend from Ineos and what more can be done from both Governments at either end of the M4.
“We need to do all we can to get the work back on track and secure this investment for workers and families in Bridgend.”
