Sue calls it a day

I am sure that many Assembly Members will agree with me that whereas we wish Sue Essex well in the future, her decision to stand down from the Assembly at the next election will leave the whole institution impoverished. She is a highly capable and effective Minister who has had an enormous influence on the new agenda being carved out for Wales by the Assembly.

Sue's main legacy of course will be the All Wales Spatial Plan, which has already started to transform the way that we plan the shape of our communities and the services they rely on, however her contribution to transport policy, the environment, and the Assembly's Finances will also prove invaluable. There are very few Ministers who can command the same sort of respect across the political spectrum for their work as Sue Essex.
