The former First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones rejects claims from right-wing politicians and commentators that the closure is down to net-zero policies and lays the blame squarely at the feet of Brexit and the Conservative government – who he says have done nothing to meaningfully save British steel since the referendum in 2016.

Byline TV’s Caolan Robertson speaks to him following the announcement that Port Talbot’s Steelworks will close their blast furnaces, with the loss of 3000 jobs. As First Minister from 2009-2018, Jones was involved in discussions with the Government to ensure the future of the plant and the thousands of livelihoods that depend on it remaining open. He says that despite making assurances pre-Brexit, they lost interest as soon as Leave won the referendum.
