Statement by the European Commission Office in Wales on the death of former Head of Office Rhodri Morgan
The European Commission Office in Wales is deeply sorry to hear of the passing of the Former First Minister of Wales, Rhodri Morgan. Mr Morgan was truly a giant of Welsh politics. He was also, from 1980-1987, the Head of the European Commission Office in Wales, something we remain very proud of. Even after retirement as First Minister, he remained a regular guest at events we held and a speaker of wit and distinction, with a profound understanding of European Affairs. He will be sorely missed.
