Price welcomes positive talks to oppose no-deal Brexit
Plaid Cymru leader Adam Price AM, has welcomed the progress made at a cross-party meeting in London on Tuesday morning to agree a joint strategy to prevent a no-deal Brexit.
Following the talks, instigated by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, it was confirmed agreement had been reached to prioritise opposing a no-deal Brexit using legislation, with a no-confidence vote in the government now seen as a last resort.
The leaders of Labour, the SNP, the Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru, the Green Party and the Independent Group for Change have also agreed to meet again to discuss how to stop the UK leaving the European Union without a deal on October 31st.
Adam Price, who attended the meeting with Plaid Cymru’s Westminster Group Leader, Liz Saville Roberts MP along with the other Westminster Opposition Leaders said:
“Today was an important step forward in Plaid Cymru’s mission to beat Brexit.
“We committed to work cooperatively with every other opposition party and do everything in our power to avoid a catastrophic crash-out Brexit.
“We have proven before, by taking initiative and forging alliances in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election, that grown up politics can be a force for good. We will continue in that vein in the forthcoming crucial weeks.
“Today’s vital step goes some way in realising our priority of stopping a ‘no deal’ in its tracks, but we will not lose sight of our ultimate ambition of stopping Brexit and protecting Wales’s future as part of the European Union.”
