Ministers face questions on Welsh rail investment
8 March 2021
At the previous session of the inquiry, Welsh Economy Minister Ken Skates asserted that spending on Welsh rail infrastructure between 2011 and 2016 “represents underinvestment of a billion or more pounds”. It is expected that Mr Heaton-Harris and Mr Davies will be questioned about these claims.
