Jo Stevens, Shadow Secretary of State for Wales, has slammed Leanne Wood's conference speech that claims Plaid Cymru are the only party who will defend Wales' interests in Brexit negotiations.

Jo said: "This is an absurd claim from the leader of entirely inward-focused party.

"Labour is leading the charge both in Parliament and through the First Minister to ensure Wales' voice is heard in Brexit negotiations.

"Plaid Cymru's stated aims - for Wales to be included in negotiations, and to strengthen Wales' constitutional position - are quite correct, and that's why Labour, the party which delivered Welsh devolution, is fighting for key amendments to improve the Wales Bill, and making sure Wales has a seat at the table in Brexit negotiations."
