Sargeant takes charge of Welsh waste office

Wales First Minister Carwyn Jones is reshuffling his ministerial team and has moved Carl Sargeant to the natural resources brief, which covers waste.

Jones announced the changes on Twitter.

Sargeant takes over from John Griffiths who took over the waste responsibilities in July when Jones removed Alun Davies, the then minister, because of “inappropriate” requests he made to civil servants.

Davies had asked civil servants to get hold of information regarding some farm subsidies paid to five Welsh Assembly members.

At the time, Jones split Davies’ portfolio among other ministers.

Sargeant has represented Alyn and Deeside since 2003. The Labour website says he was previously employed by a manufacturing company in North Wales and trained as a quality & environmental auditor and was also an industrial fire-fighter.
