The Prime Minister has promised to speak up for the interests of Wales when negotiating the UK's exit from the European Union.

Speaking at the Conservative Spring Forum in Cardiff, Theresa May criticised moves to hold a second independence referendum in Scotland.

She said all the United Kingdom's efforts and energies needed to be focused on getting the right Brexit deal.

We can only get that deal if we are united, as one United Kingdom, all pulling together to get the best outcome.

That is what we have always done when faced with challenges.

We have pulled together as one and succeeded together.

We are four nations, but at heart we are one people.

As the Prime Minister of this United Kingdom, I will always ensure the voices and interests of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are represented as we negotiate to leave the EU.

And I will always fight to strengthen and sustain this precious, precious Union.

– Prime Minister Theresa May
