Commenting on confirmation that Plaid Cymru’s Ieuan Wyn Jones will step down from the Assembly, Leader of the Welsh Conservatives Andrew RT Davies AM, said:
“Ieuan has always been an effective Assembly Member and I applaud his many years of public service.
“His time in Welsh politics has been unique. While serving as both a Member of Parliament and Member of the National Assembly, he has also taken his Party into government and served as Deputy First Minister.
“It is fitting that this experience will be put to excellent use at the Menai Science Park.
“While Ieuan and I may hold different opinions politically, I wish him well in his important endeavours to increase opportunities for the people of North Wales.”
