Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Newport West Angela Jones-Evans, visits Associated British Ports at Newport Docks, to understand the issues affecting them if the M4 Relief Road is developed and the wider impact and or opportunities following Brexit.
Angela was very kindly shown around ABP Newport Docks by the Port Director Matthew Kennerley, who thoroughly explained a range of issues likely to impact on Newport Docks, particularly if the M4 Relief Road Development takes place.
Angela was given access to all parts of the port and saw the immense infrastructure covering a very large area of Newport. Angela discussed with Matthew Kennerley the opportunities that lay ahead following Brexit and how a UK Conservative Government if relected in June could help ABP Newport expand and generate many more jobs.
Associated British Ports (ABP) South Wales provides for approximately 15,000 jobs, and covers an area of 3,800 acres and handles more than 12 million tonnes of cargo each year between Newport, Cardiff, Barry, Port Talbot and Swansea Docks respectively. Heavy industry has a major influence on the cargoes handled by the South Wales Ports, but there is also an increasing range of other cargo types including forestry products, recyclables, agribulk and bulk liquids.
Angela Jones-Evans if elected will develop an important relationship with the management of ABP South Wales to fully exploit every possible opportunity of developing new trade contracts handled through Newport Docks. This could lead to significant job creation within the port and the wider supply chain - benefitting the people of Newport through well paid jobs and the increased wealth that would bring into the city.

Angela would like to thank the staff at ABP South Wales - in particular Matthew Kennerley (Port Director) and Julia Hill for their courtesy and professionalism, and the staff working at the docks (seen above Matthew and Jack) for their open and friendly discussions.
