Welsh Secretary to make parliamentary history

The Welsh Secretary will become the first government minister in history to address the House of Commons virtually.

Simon Hart will take questions from MPs from his home in Pembrokeshire later on Wednesday.

The Commons is sitting in a “hybrid” format – with a limited number of MPs attending but most expected to join through the internet.

“The UK government has told people to work from home where possible during the coronavirus outbreak and it is right that the work of the UK Parliament is also carried out differently during these unprecedented times,” Mr Hart said.

The Welsh Assembly will also return later, continuing its virtual sittings.

Preseli Pembrokeshire: Conservative hold

Stephen Crabb has been re-elected as the MP for Preseli Pembrokeshire, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Philippa Thompson by 5,062 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Cris Tomos of Plaid Cymru came third and Liberal Democrat Tom Hughes came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.9 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 42,000 people, 71.2% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Tom Hughes (Liberal Democrat) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
