The Welsh Government’s cabinet has met in north Wales for only the second time since devolution in 1999. Ministers have also met Horizon – the company behind the stalled Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station on Anglesey. Earlier this week, Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns met representatives of Horizon’s parent company Hitachi in Tokyo. First Minister Mark Drakeford said it was up to the UK government to bring the company back to the table. BBC Wales has learned Mr Drakeford was invited to go to Japan with Mr Cairns but turned it down because of diary commitments in the UK.
