May 23, 2011 3:05 PM

Responding to the news that the Newport Passport Office will remain open, Lord Mike German, Welsh Liberal Democrat Member of the House of Lords, said:

"This is much better news than we first feared. The job losses proposed are regrettable but have been limited and there will now be a proper Passport Office in Newport and Wales.

"Many have been involved in making the positive case for retaining a Welsh passport office. I am glad that the government has listened to the case for Wales and responded to that case. There is now a real opportunity to develop work in Newport passport office as the economy recovers and to build on the high level skills available in the University City of Newport."
