The Plaid Cymru leader said that with inflation rising to 2.3% last week, the majority of people are likely to feel a squeeze on their living standards.

She added that the Prime Minister's vision for exiting the EU must include safeguards to protect the economies of all nations and regions of the UK, not just the City square mile in London.

With just a few days remaining until the Prime Minister formally triggers the UK's exit from the EU, it is vital that she takes the economic interests of all parts of these islands into account. This means pursuing a Brexit that not only provides for the City square mile in London, but which safeguards jobs and trade in all nations and regions of the UK.
