What consideration has the Welsh Government given to the need for an independent inquiry into the recent collapse of a wind turbine at Pant-y-Wal wind farm?

I expect all industries in Wales to adhere to the highest standards of safety as set out in relevant regulations and best practice guidance. Nordex special investigation teams are undertaking a forensic investigation into the incident, which is likely to take some weeks. I will consider whether further action is needed once this investigation is complete.
