Labour and Plaid Cymru have agreed on new plans for how they believe
Wales and the UK should exit the European Union.
First Minister Carwyn Jones and Plaid leader Leanne Wood say
immigration controls should be tightened, but the UK
should still participate in the tariff-free single market.
The two leaders have been in talks for months about how Wales
and the UK should go about Brexit.
The Scottish and Northern Irish Governments have
outlined their proposals, now we get a flavour

Some are warning that clarity is needed as soon as possible
to avoid jobs being lost to the continent.
Already we see haemorrhaging of jobs from the City of London,
and they provide 12% of the income of this country.
That is going to impact on jobs.
Not just jobs, but our services, hospitals, schools, and people need
to understand this is not just about jobs, it is about their
services and what will happen in Wales in the future.
Keeping membership of the single market, the tariff-free trading
agreement within the countries of the EU and some others,
is seen as being important to Wales in particular.
This chart shows how much of our exports, over two thirds,
goes to the EU compared with the rest of the world.
Carwyn Jones and Leanne Wood have said immigration from the EU is not
a big problem in Wales, despite representing
constituencies which voted strongly to leave the EU.
Opponents said they are trying to rerun the referendum campaign.
What is important is we are able to trade and we can get
access, but we get access on a level playing field.
The important thing people told us in the referendum was that
sovereignty needed to come back to the UK and decisions

Labour politicians and Plaid are unable to come
to terms with that.
After last week we have a clearer idea of what leading
politicians want from Brexit, but agreeing on those plans seems
as unlikely as ever.
Meanwhile, Labour peer Lord Peter Hain says he will not be
voting to trigger Article 50, because he says it
will damage Welsh jobs.
The former Welsh Secretary, who now sits in the House of Lords,
said he acknowledged the referendum result and respected it,
but said people were not expecting a deal that would be damaging
to the most vulnerable.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said all his MPs would be told to approve
the triggering of Article 50, the process by which
the UK leaves the EU.
I am concerned about the damage to Wales, to our jobs
and to our most-vulnerable citizens.
That is why in all conscience and principle I cannot vote
to trigger Article 50 on the basis of this extreme right-wing agenda
the Prime Minister has promised.
The Labour Party is united on that.
People may take a different tactical position at this stage,
but we are united in opposing this hard, right-wing Brexit.

a racially-aggravated public-order offence.

It was the only arrest around the game, which was subject

Rugby, and Wales have asked the organisers
of the Six Nations Championship for permission to play
