I have regular discussions with Cabinet colleagues on a range of issues, including the Places for Growth programme.

The Places for Growth programme is delivering the UK Government’s commitment to move 22,000 Civil Service roles and 50% of UK-based Senior Civil Service roles, out of Greater London by 2030. Wales has already benefitted from this work including the establishment of a Trade Hub for Wales and a dedicated DLUHC Wales area team based in the UK Government’s Cardiff Hub (Ty William Morgan). Furthermore, as detailed in the Levelling Up White Paper, Wales will benefit from the relocation of around 500 non-operational Ministry of Justice roles to sites including Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham.
