Welsh Secretary David Jones visits Wylfa on first engagement

The UK government's continued commitment to the nuclear industry has been restated by the new Welsh secretary, on his first official engagement.

David Jones said securing a new nuclear station, Wylfa B, on Anglesey was "critical" to his economic efforts.

He made his comments before touring the existing Wylfa station, which is due to end production by 2014.

Nuclear continued to play a vital role in the UK's "energy mix", he added.

David Jones spoke to BBC Wales business correspondent Nick Servini.
