Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood, says the UK would have to be

:00:00.:00:20.

prepared to accept some free movement of people, in order to stay

:00:21.:00:23.

In her speech to the party's autumn conference, she said she accepted

:00:24.:00:27.

the leave vote in Wales, but not a deal that would leave

:00:28.:00:29.

Our Political Editor, Nick Servini, reports from Llangollen.

:00:30.:00:41.

New infrastructure and a new relationship with the EU. That was

:00:42.:00:47.

the focus today when Leanne Wood visited the site of a new science

:00:48.:00:51.

block at a college near Wrexham. In her speech in Llangollen, she called

:00:52.:00:57.

on Theresa May to listen to views from Wells, saying that while the

:00:58.:01:01.

bargaining position was not as strong as the Scots, Welsh people

:01:02.:01:04.

still deserved to have a say on Brexit. Her priority was clear,

:01:05.:01:12.

protect the economy rather than control of borders. And she repeated

:01:13.:01:16.

her claim that the so-called hard Brexit position favoured by the

:01:17.:01:20.

Prime Minister was not the best option for Wales. Plaid Cymru accept

:01:21.:01:26.

the referendum result. We might not have wanted this outcome but we have

:01:27.:01:31.

to try and secure the best possible deal for Wales. But what we will

:01:32.:01:35.

never accept is a negotiated deal which sees Wales worse off. This

:01:36.:01:47.

weekend, Plaid has the luxury of being in Europe, its challenge is to

:01:48.:01:53.

reconcile its support for soft Brexit, in which there could be

:01:54.:01:56.

limited controls on immigration, with the wishes of so many people in

:01:57.:02:02.

Wales converted to leave. Meanwhile, the debate continues over what kind

:02:03.:02:06.

of relationship Plaid should have with Labour at the assembly. The

:02:07.:02:09.

biggest cheer of Leanne Wood's speech came when she said she was

:02:10.:02:16.

not seeking a coalition. Conference, we are not seeking a coalition with

:02:17.:02:19.

the Labour Party. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE The party is

:02:20.:02:28.

now in opposition but has struck a deal with Labour over the budget

:02:29.:02:30.

this week. Assembly Member Neil McEvoy made the

:02:31.:02:35.

most high-profile call against this, saying that Plaid should have

:02:36.:02:39.

nothing to do with Labour. The simple truth is that what is right

:02:40.:02:44.

for Wales is ending Labour rule. APPLAUSE You need to spend the next

:02:45.:02:54.

4.5 years grinding them down, challenging them, at every

:02:55.:02:56.

opportunity. This conference has been slightly

:02:57.:03:00.

:03:01.:03:06.

will have a major impact on where Plaid positions itself in future.

:03:36.:03:39.

In today's home-game match programme they say not informing

:03:40.:03:43.

for which they 'take full responsibility.'
