Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds has stated it is an honour to be named Shadow Cabinet Member for Wales and for Food and Rural Affairs in Jo Swinson’s first Shadow Cabinet.
In announcing her Shadow Cabinet, Jo Swinson declared she has built a team that will provide “the real alternative our country needs”.
The Liberal Democrat Shadow Cabinet is 50/50 gender balanced and has a membership of 15% BAME.
Kirsty Williams is also in the Shadow Cabinet as a Spokesperson for Wales.
Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds commented:
It is an honour to be given two vital roles in my party’s Shadow Cabinet. I look forward to highlighting Alun Cairns’ consistent failure to deliver for Wales and standing up for rural communities across Wales and the UK.
I join an exceptionally strong Liberal Democrat team that is ready to continue leading the campaign to stop Brexit and create a fairer, freer and more liberal Britain.
Leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson said:
I am proud to announce my new Liberal Democrat Shadow Cabinet to stop Brexit.
Given the threats from nationalism and populism, more than ever before, people are crying out for a new vision for our country.
This new team will take the fight to this right wing Conservative Government and provide, where Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party have been absent, the real alternative our country needs.
This is also a team ready to offer the solutions to the big issues people face, to lead the Liberal Democrats as the strongest remain party into a General Election, and to win a People’s Vote.
