Long term steel making must be 'priority' - Ken Skates

New Economy and Infrastructure Secretary Ken Skates has called for a long-term solution to the steel crisis that will protect jobs in Wales, whether Tata sells its UK sites or not.

The Indian firm is expected to come up with a shortlist of potential buyers.

Mr Skates told BBC Wales business correspondent Brian Meechan that steel making's long term future was the priority.
