A question regarding the future of Aberthaw Power Station in the Vale of Glamorgan has been rejected in the Senedd. 

Following The National's recent exclusives about the site of the Wales last coal-fired power station, South Wales Central MS, Andrew RT Davies, submitted a question on the reported plan: 'Will the Minister make a statement on Welsh Government involvement in the planned purchase of Aberthaw Power Station and its potential green energy use?'

The Cardiff Capital Region supergroup of councils has confirmed its intention to buy the site. You can read the background here

Mr Davies said: "Today I tabled a Topical Question in the Welsh Parliament in an effort to get information for residents from Labour Ministers. Unfortunately my question was rejected. 

"I have requested a meeting with the Cardiff Capital Region and the Vale Council to try and get to the bottom of things in regards to the planned purchase of Aberthaw Power Station. 

"It is vital that our community have clarity over what is going on."
