First Minister Carwyn Jones has responded to the triggering of Brexit by warning that it could be a disaster for Wales, despite signs that Theresa May had paid some attention to the Welsh Government's views. He told AMs that the Prime Minister had not shown him the letter that she's sent to the EU.
The First Minister added that he will vigorously oppose any clawback of devolved powers as a result of Brexit. It was one of the issues discussed at a meeting of senior Labour politicians at Cardiff University. Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Brexit should be the opportunity to take devolution further.
In the letter handed to European Council President Donald Tusk, Theresa May has said that she too expects many powers brought back from Brussels to be passed on the devolved nations.
In the Senedd, UKIP's Neil Hamilton said that Carwyn Jones was the voice of doom and gloom, who "makes Gordon Brown look positively cheerful by comparison".
