Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood has today called for the terms of Wales’ exit from the EU to be agreed by the whole Assembly.
In a keynote address, Leanne Wood said that Wales’ exit from the EU is not a matter for the Welsh Government alone, and that the Assembly should agree on the Welsh Government’s official negotiating position on Wales’ terms of withdrawal from the European Union.
In her address, Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood said:
“The Welsh Government should develop and prepare an official Welsh negotiating position for EU withdrawal.
“That position should be scrutinised and agreed by the National Assembly, so that it is in place in time for an incoming UK Prime Minister.
“As soon as that Prime Minister sits down at the desk in 10 Downing Street, the Welsh position should be in her or his in-tray.”
In her speech, Leanne Wood also warned that Plaid Cymru will not allow Wales to be marginalised following the vote to withdraw from the EU. She said that the vote to leave the European Union was not a vote to concentrate more power in Westminster.
