A furious reaction to the first batch of no-deal Brexit preparation papers has come in from across the UK. The documents have shown up the UK’s no-deal plans as a bluff that was “fooling no-one”, said Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones. “The writing is on the wall,” he said.
The UK government must rethink devolution as a result of Brexit, a group of MPs have recommended. The process of leaving the EU has sparked a series of clashes between UK government ministers and their counterparts in Scotland and Wales.
Nicola Sturgeon is to meet senior UK government politicians for the first time since accusing them of ripping up the devolution settlement. The first minister will hold talks with Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington in Guernsey.
The next Welsh Labour leader must “shake-up” the party after almost two decades in power, a former Welsh secretary has said. Carwyn Jones is to step down as the party's leader and first minister in the autumn.
First Minister Carwyn Jones has said he will take steps to protect Welsh powers after Brexit if UK ministers do not change their EU withdrawal bill. He claimed the way Theresa May planned to bring powers back from Brussels was a fundamental assault on devolution.
The prime minister and her cabinet lack the basic skills to get a good Brexit deal, Wales First Minister Carwyn Jones has claimed. Addressing the Labour Party conference in Brighton, the First Minister said Theresa May was incapable of listening to other people's views.
Carwyn Jones has said there is some way to go before the Welsh Government can support the Brexit bill transferring EU law to Parliament. It follows what the first minister called a useful first meeting with Damian Green, Theresa May's deputy.
Theresa May has appealed for unity from pro-EU Conservative MPs as the Commons is set to debate the government's Brexit repeal bill on Thursday. The bill, seen as a key plank of the government's Brexit policy, transfers EU law into UK legislation
A Welsh Member of Parliament who quit Labour's shadow cabinet rather than back the bill to trigger Brexit has welcomed the party's call to stay in the single market temporarily. Cardiff Central MP Jo Stevens said Labour was shifting in the right direction on relations with the EU.
The Scottish and Welsh first ministers have agreed to work together on amendments to the Brexit repeal Bill which they said is an “unashamed move to centralize decision-making power in Westminster”.
