4. Statement by the Minister for Social Partnership: Creative Wales skills update (18 Jun 2024)

In regard to the re-evaluation of the creative skills plan, bearing in mind also the skills development of the outreach of Welsh National Opera, is there any consideration in the third year of how that will be undertaken, going forward?
