Laura Anne Jones MS said, "I am delighted to have been asked to join Paul Davies’ Shadow Cabinet as Shadow Minister for Equalities, Children and Young People.
"As the mother of two, I am only too aware of the issues facing children and their families, particularly as we emerge from this challenging period of lockdown.
"Every child and young person should have the chance to achieve their potential, regardless of their background and removing barriers to opportunity will be key to my work.
"The equalities portfolio will enable me to build on the legacy of Mohammad Asghar and to promote and extend the rights of our minority communities in Wales.
"I look forward to listening to the views of people in communities across Wales as we finalise our programme for government for the Welsh Parliament election."
