Following the announcement of Centrica's five-fold profit increase, what conversations have the Welsh Government had with UK counterparts about how profits are driving inflation?

Answered by Minister for Economy | Answered on 12/08/2022

I meet UK Government Ministers through regular UK Inter-Ministerial Groups and bi-laterals with the Secretary of State for Wales. During these meetings I have continually stressed the severe impact that inflation is having on household incomes and our disappointment that the UK Government is not doing more to alleviate these problems and reduce the burden on workers.
