Alun Cairns said:
It was a constructive meeting with the Prime Minister and First Minister where we all agreed the importance of doing everything we can to secure a sale for the Port Talbot plant. This built further on previous meetings that the Prime Minister has chaired on steel.
The UK Government has a positive working relationship with the Welsh Government and it is essential that we continue working together to secure a solid future for the plant and end the uncertainty for workers and their families.
