A Welsh Government spokesperson said:
“The Minister for Education and Skills Leighton Andrews discussed this in a telephone conversation with Ms McVey this morning.
“Welsh Ministers have opposed factory closures from the start. We have made it clear we do not believe that closing the factories will improve the lives of disabled people and we will be discussing our objections to DWP's announcement as a matter of urgency.
“We have sought to alleviate the impact of closures by introducing a programme of support to help displaced Remploy workers in Wales to find alternative, suitable employment. The programme has already proven to be successful, with a total of 97 employment opportunities already identified, approved and recruitment underway with 26 employers across a range of business sectors.”
