Government ‘will impose Welsh freeport’

[ June 18, 2021   //   ]

Welsh secretary Simon Hart says the Westminster government will develop a freeport in Wales even if the Welsh government does not agree, according to a BBC report.

Hart told a committee of MPs “we would rather do it as a team effort than have to resort to reserved powers, but it is a commitment”.

According to the report, Welsh government ministers have raised concerns and sought an agreement on the plans.
