Welsh Communists will fight for the return of industrial powers stolen by the Tory government in its Internal Market Act. Then we can save our steel industry.
After Brexit, 70 policy-making powers in energy, transport, the environment, climate change, rights at work, public spending contracts and agriculture are due to come to the Senedd.
