The Welsh Grand Committee will meet in Wrexham tomorrow, the first time it has met in Wales since 2001.

The committee consists of 40 Welsh MPs and up to 5 others who will debate issues relevant to Wales.

It is meeting in Wrexham to debate the Government’s Work Programme and its implications for the country.

The committee will meet between 11.00am and 4.00pm at the council chambers in the Guildhall.

The meeting is open to the public and will also hear from Chris Grayling MP who is Minister of State for Employment.

The Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr Ian Roberts:

“This will be the first time the Welsh Grand Committee has met in Wales since 2001 and we are honoured that Wrexham has been selected to host the meeting.

“The committee will be discussing some of the major issues affecting Wales, with MPs from all over the country attending.”

Former Wrexham MP John Marek has hit out at the committee in today’s Leader, describing it as “an expensive talking shop” and calling for it to be scrapped.
