Purpose of the session
Secretary of State Alun Cairns MP will give evidence to the Welsh Affairs Committee on a wide range of issues such as the impact of Brexit on agriculture and trade and preparations for no-deal. The Committee may ask about the role of the Secretary of State in representing the views of Wales in ongoing talks.
Questions will also likely focus on ongoing assessments of issues affecting the Welsh economy such as the suspension of nuclear works on Wylfa Newydd and proposals for funding to boost economic growth throughout Wales. The Committee will also draw on evidence taken during its recent inquiry into the devolution of air passenger duty, which the Welsh Government has argued could bring economic benefits to Wales.
