He advocated a greater use of the Welsh language in the curriculum and the celebration of St David's Day in schools. Dan Jenkins was at the forefront of other important policy matters such as contracts of employment, tenants' rights, the development of Welsh agriculture, as well as significant aspects of the Welsh way of life, such as folk singing and the eisteddfod. He was a county councillor, teacher, farmer and writer.
