I am leaving the Cabinet after 18 and a half years of ministerial office in health, social services, equalities, education, finance and finally as Leader of the House and Chief Whip.
I have been very fortunate to be able to play my part in the founding years of the Assembly, helping to secure stability and confidence in a Welsh Labour Government throughout this time.
Guided always by my principles and values of social justice and fair play, I have taken every opportunity to help shape Policy to meet Welsh needs in the past 2 decades of devolution.
You have to stick to your principles in politics and keep your feet on the ground, listening to the people you serve, especially those without a strong voice. That’s what I have always sought to do.
I will continue to serve my constituents in the Vale of Glamorgan with dedication and commitment, thankful for the support I have received from them for so many years.’ -Jane Hutt AM
