About the event

Co‑operatives UK and Wales Co‑op Centre present this Wales-focused Co‑op Connections online meeting with a special speaker – Huw Irranca‑Davies, a Welsh Labour and Co‑operative politician.


Huw Irranca‑Davies is a Welsh Labour and Co-operative politician, who has been the Member of the Senedd for Ogmore since 2016. He was previously the Member of Parliament for Ogmore from 2002 to 2016.

This year, Huw has campaigned extensively for the adoption of the Marcora Law in Wales, legislation that gives workers the right, support and finance to undertake a co-operative buy-out of a business in crisis. Huw introduced a motion to the Senedd on October 20th to consider a Welsh Marcora Law, and the Welsh Government has signalled its “open mind” to the proposal and plans to explore this further.
