Heledd presses First Minister on lack of Culture & Sport Minister

As Mark Drakeford made a statement on the appointment of his new cabinet Heledd used the opportunity to question why Culture and Sport was only a junior post in his government but a senior post in both London and Edinburgh.

Heledd's Question:

Thank you, Llywydd, and thank you to the First Minister for his welcome to us as brand-new Members to the Senedd.

The Scottish Government has a Cabinet Secretary responsible for culture and one responsible for sport. The Westminster Government has a Secretary of State responsible for culture and sport.

But, despite your comments on culture and sport at the beginning of this session, once again, here in Wales, we have a Deputy Minister with responsibility for culture and sport. Why are culture and sport lessimportant to the Welsh Government than to other Governments?
