The Prime Minister has rejected calls for Wales to have a direct rôle in Brexit negotiations, saying only that she will 'consult and work with' administrations in Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast.
Speaking to the Conservative party conference in Birmingham, Theresa May said negotiations to leave the European Union are 'the responsibility of the [UK] Government and nobody else.'
The Welsh Government has repeated its assertion that Wales 'must also have a place at the negotiating table.'
But in her speech in Birmingham today (Sunday) the Prime Minister was clear:
Her position is at direct odds with that of the Welsh Government which continues to insist that it should 'have a place at the negotiating table.' A spokesperson issued this statement:
'Affront to democracy'
Leanne Wood has criticised Theresa May's speech both for her rejection of calls for a direct role for the Welsh Government in talks and for what the Plaid Cymru leader calls the Prime Minister's 'hard Brexit' stance.
