Andrew RT Davies: I will wait until after Assembly election to campaign to leave EU

The leader of the Conservative party in Wales has said although he has decided to vote to leave the EU, he will not be campaigning until after the Assembly election in May.

I've made my decision...those will be the beliefs and principles I will champion in the campaign after May 5th. I believe there is plenty of opportunity within the six to seven weeks after May 5th for us to engage fully and robustly in that [EU] campaign.

"What we've got to focus on in the next 70 odd days is health, education, economy, local government - because if you miss that opportunity to change things here in Wales and secure the real change Wales needs then you won't get the second chance after May 5th."

– Andrew RT Davies, Leader of the Conservative Party in Wales
