That's all from me, stay with us on BBC1 -
The First Minister has told BBC Wales he will not support any deal
on Brexit if it involves trade tariffs on goods produced in Wales.
Carwyn Jones will meet Theresa May in London tomorrow as part of talks
between the leaders of each part of the United Kingdom.
The UK government says countries in Europe will be keen
to trade with Britain, as our political correspondent,
Arwyn Jones, reports.
From the biggest companies based here such as Airbus,
Tata and Ford to the thousands of smaller firms up and down
the country, Wales exports a large number of goods,
especially to other EU countries, and the ability to do that freely
is an important way to remain competitive in a worldwide economy.
From their very first meeting in July, Carwyn Jones has reiterated
to Theresa May that his priority is that firms based in Wales can
continue to have access to the European markets
with any financial cost.
He'll meet with her again tomorrow in London, but he took
to the airwaves today to make his strongest remarks yet
about how important the issue is to him.
I would not under any circumstances support any deal that saw
the reintroduction of tariffs...
But would you have any choice?
Do the UK government want to go into negotiations with other
governments in the UK critical of them, or other governments
in the UK critical of any deal they might reach?
I don't think that's wise.
Much better for the UK government to look at getting support
at the beginning.
That's what negotiation is.
Mr Jones also said he accepted there would need to have limits on how
many citizens come to live and work in the UK and offered some ideas
on how a future system might work.
What we absolutely need is no barriers in place
for doctors coming here, for nurses coming here,
for professionals running companies.
No barriers to them and the same for our citizens going to other
So a work visa system is what you are looking at, then?
There are models elsewhere where if you have a job,
you can come to work.
That is one possibility.
The UK Government refuses to give a running commentary on negotiations
on negotiations with EU countries, but today a leading figure
of the Brexit campaign told the BBC that other countries are going to be
keen to trade with the UK.
Nobody in continental Europe benefits from a reduction
in the ability to trade with the United Kingdom,
therefore, it is not going to be in their interest
to see tariffs imposed.
This is why I have always been convinced we will have tariff free
trade, we will have sensible trading arrangements, because it is
in both our interests that that should happen.
Tomorrow, the leaders of each part of the United Kingdom
will meet in Downing Street.
The Joint Ministerial Committee was last held two years ago.

The development of the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station will present
'significant challenges' to health services in North Wales -

population could rise by about 12%

hospitals and community services.
The Welsh Government says plans to devolve the Wales and Borders
rail franchise would include existing cross-border services.

having to change trains.
