Plaid Cymru leader Adam Price will sit down with Theresa May in Downing Street in order, as he puts it, "to stand up for Wales and make the case for a new settlement across the UK at this time of constitutional and economic change".

ITV Wales News understands that the meeting is at Mr Price's request. But if it's a change in approach from his predecessor, Leanne Wood, it doesn't seem to indicate any change in policy. He's expected to argue that Brexit requires a change in relationship between the different parts of the United Kingdom.

It's also noteworthy that the Prime Minister has found time to see Adam Price, who'll be accompanied by the leader of Plaid Cymru's four MPs, Liz Saville Roberts. Mrs May will be interested in how those MPs would vote on a Brexit deal, depending what agreement -if any- she eventually brings back from Brussels.
