As the second busiest Roll On-Roll Off freight port in the UK, the Government recognises the importance of Holyhead to the economy of Wales and the UK. That is why a number of Government ministers, including myself and, earlier this month, the Parliamentary under Secretary of State at the Department for Exiting the European Union, have visited Holyhead to discuss the impact of EU Exit on the port and its operators.

The Office of the Secretary of State for Wales, along with other UK Government Departments, continues to work with port operators across Wales, other key stakeholders, and the Welsh Government, to ensure that traffic continues to flow freely at ports and airports in Wales once the UK has left the EU.
