“Rhodri was an outstanding servant of Wales, the United Kingdom and the Labour Party. He was great company, a fund of marvellous stories and a shrewd and immensely capable politician. We spent many times together in opposition and in Government. He took over the Welsh Assembly leadership at a difficult moment and led it with enormous skill and dedication. He will be sorely missed and I send my deepest condolences to Julie and the family.”
