A local man has been appointed as Special Adviser to the Secretary of State for Leaving the European Union.

Craig Williams, who already has wide experience of British and Welsh politics having served as MP for Cardiff North from 2015 to 2017, began working for Secretary of State Steve Barclay this week.

He was born in Welshpool and comes from a big Montgomeryshire family. He lives in Llanfair Caereinion with his family and his appointment has been welcomed by Glyn Davies, Conservative MP for Montgomeryshire.

“I’ve known Craig since he left Welshpool High School to work with me in my Montgomeryshire constituency office when I was an Assembly Member,” said Glyn, pictured with Craig last week in Welshpool. “I always knew he was destined for great things. Over the last few years he has broadened his knowledge and honed his political skills working in the National Assembly, as a Cardiff City Councillor and as a Member of Parliament.

“I was really pleased when the irresistible ‘pull’ of Montgomeryshire brought him back to his family roots.

“At present there is no bigger job in Government than delivering on the referendum vote to leave the European Union, requiring political, negotiating and diplomatic skills, as well as determination. I could think of no-one better suited to this crucial task than Craig.

“Over the decades, Montgomeryshire has produced several influential politicians. I am pleased to have played a part in developing the career of another politician to take his place in the heart of Government.”
