Commenting on the appointment of Baroness Jenny Randerson as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Wales Office, Kirsty Williams, Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats said:

"I have often said that it is important for there to be Welsh Liberal Democrat representation in the Wales Office so I am of course delighted to hear the news that Baroness Randerson is to join the team as a Parliamentary Under Secretary of State.

"Whether it has been at Cardiff Council, the National Assembly or more recently Westminster, Jenny has been a leading voice on important Welsh issues and has time and time again ensured that Welsh Liberal Democrat beliefs have been strongly represented in Westminster. I am confident that she will continue this good work now she is part of the Wales Office."

Baroness Randeron commented:

"I am absolutely delighted to be appointed as a Parliamentary Under Secretary. It is a tremendous honour and privilege to be a Welsh Liberal Democrat representative in the Coalition Government.

"As a former Assembly Member, Welsh Government Minister and a committed devolutionist, I am particularly looking forward to developing the working relationship between the Welsh Government and the Wales Office to ensure that we all work together to enhance the lives of the people of Wales."
