AM will not have a say on road

Llanelli Star - - Letters -

NEW Deputy Trans­port Min­is­ter Lee Waters has con­firmed he will not be in­volved in the de­ci­sion about the pro­posed M4 relief road, of which he has been a critic.

The Llanelli AM said that dur­ing the dis­cus­sion about him be­com­ing Deputy Min­is­ter for Econ­omy and Trans­port it was made clear he will not have a say about whether the scheme should go ahead.

Speak­ing the day af­ter First Min­is­ter Mark Drake­ford an­nounced his new cab­i­net, Mr Waters said: “When I was of­fered the post, we both agreed that it would in­ap­pro­pri­ate for me to be in­volved in the de­ci­sion around the M4,”

Mr Drake­ford will make the fi­nal de­ci­sion on the pro­posed road.
