Cairns the new Wales Secretary recently took over the role from Stephan Crabb MP who was promoted to Secretary for Work and Pensions following the resignation from the Cabinet of Iain Duncan Smith, will be greeted at the gates on Weighbridge Road by trade union and Labour party politicians including Labour’s Alyn and Deeside Assembly candidate Carl Sergeant Labour party members. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
