Good evening.

0:00:150:00:16

Labour and Plaid Cymru have agreed on new plans for how they believe

0:00:160:00:19

Wales and the UK should exit the European Union.

0:00:190:00:21

First Minister Carwyn Jones and Plaid leader Leanne Wood say

0:00:210:00:24

immigration controls should be tightened, but the UK

0:00:240:00:29

should still participate in the tariff-free single market.

0:00:290:00:33

More now from our political correspondent, Arwyn Jones.

0:00:330:00:36

The two leaders have been in talks for months about how Wales

0:00:410:00:43

and the UK should go about Brexit.

0:00:430:00:45

The Scottish and Northern Irish governments have already

0:00:450:00:47

outlined their proposals, now we get a flavour

0:00:470:00:49

of the view from Cardiff Bay.

0:00:490:00:51

In a Sunday Times article they say their plans highlight...

0:00:510:00:58

But they want a system which...

0:00:580:01:04

Some are warning that clarity is needed as soon as possible

0:01:090:01:12

to avoid jobs being lost to the continent.

0:01:120:01:14

Already we're seeing the haemorrhaging of jobs

0:01:140:01:17

from the City of London, and they provide 12%

0:01:170:01:22

of the income of this country.

0:01:220:01:23

That is going to impact on jobs...

0:01:230:01:25

Not just jobs, but our services, hospitals, schools, and people need

0:01:250:01:27

to understand this is not just about jobs, it is about their

0:01:270:01:32

services and what will happen in Wales in the future.

0:01:320:01:36

Keeping membership of the single market, the tariff-free trading

0:01:360:01:41

agreement within the countries of the EU and some others,

0:01:410:01:43

is seen as being important to Wales in particular.

0:01:430:01:46

This chart shows just how much of our exports, over two thirds,

0:01:460:01:50

goes to the EU compared with the rest of the world.

0:01:500:01:55

Carwyn Jones and Leanne Wood have said immigration from the EU is not

0:01:550:01:58

a big problem in Wales, despite representing

0:01:580:02:00

constituencies which voted strongly to leave the EU.

0:02:000:02:02

Opponents say they are trying to rerun the referendum campaign.

0:02:020:02:07

What is important for us is we are able to trade

0:02:070:02:10

and we can get access, but we get access on a

0:02:100:02:13

level playing field.

0:02:130:02:16

The important thing people told us in the referendum was that

0:02:160:02:20

sovereignty needed to come back to the UK and decisions be

0:02:200:02:23

made here in the UK.

0:02:230:02:24

If you accept that, you can move forward, but sadly,

0:02:240:02:29

Eluned and other Labour politicians, and Plaid in particular, are unable

0:02:290:02:31

to come to terms with that.

0:02:310:02:33

After last week we have a clearer idea of what leading

0:02:330:02:36

politicians want from Brexit, but agreeing on those plans seems

0:02:360:02:40

as unlikely as ever.

0:02:400:02:44

Meanwhile, Labour peer Lord Peter Hain says he will not be

0:02:450:02:47

voting to trigger Article 50, because he says it

0:02:470:02:49

will damage Welsh jobs.

0:02:490:02:51

The former Welsh Secretary, who now sits in the House of Lords,

0:02:510:02:54

said he acknowledged the referendum result and respected it,

0:02:540:02:57

but said people were not expecting a deal that would be damaging

0:02:570:03:00

to the most vulnerable.

0:03:000:03:03

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said all his MPs would be told to approve

0:03:030:03:06

the triggering of Article 50, the process by which

0:03:060:03:09

the UK leaves the EU.

0:03:090:03:13

I am concerned about the damage to Wales, to our jobs

0:03:130:03:16

and to our most-vulnerable citizens.

0:03:160:03:19

That is why in all conscience and principle I cannot vote

0:03:190:03:22

to trigger Article 50 on the basis of this extreme right-wing agenda

0:03:220:03:27

the Prime Minister has promised.

0:03:270:03:31

The Labour Party is united on that.

0:03:310:03:33

People may take a different tactical position at this stage,

0:03:330:03:36

but we are united in opposing this hard, right-wing Brexit.

0:03:360:03:43

A mother and her eight-year-old son have gone missing

0:03:440:03:46

from their home on Anglesey.

0:03:460:03:48

The family of 36-year-old Elen Jones and Lewis Rhys,

0:03:480:03:50

who live in Menai Bridge, have not seen them since Tuesday.

0:03:500:03:54

North Wales Police believe they are travelling

0:03:540:03:56

in a gold-coloured Citroen Zara, and have appealed for

0:03:560:03:59

sightings of the pair.

0:04:010:04:05

Police in Cheshire say a man was arrested during yesterday's

0:04:050:04:08

Chester versus Wrexham football match in relation to

0:04:080:04:10

a racially-aggravated public order offence.

0:04:100:04:11

It is believed to relate to comments directed at Wrexham

0:04:110:04:13

striker Ntumba Massanka during the match yesterday.

0:04:130:04:15

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

0:04:150:04:18

to tighter policing as a so-called "bubble match".

0:04:180:04:23

Rugby, and in the quarterfinals of the European Challenge Cup,

0:04:240:04:32

the Ospreys will be at home to French club Stade Francais,

0:04:320:04:36

while the Cardiff Blues travel to Gloucester.

0:04:360:04:38

The ties will be played between March 30th and April 2nd.

0:04:380:04:41

Let's take a quick look at tomorrow's weather...

0:04:420:04:44

And fog in the east will be slow to clear through the morning.

0:04:440:04:47

Elsewhere, it'll remain dry with some bright,

0:04:470:04:49

sunny spells developing, but it will feel chilly in the east.

0:04:490:04:51

A top temperature of 10 Celsius.

0:04:510:04:55

That's Wales Today.

0:04:560:04:57

We're back with updates in Breakfast from 6:25am.

0:04:570:04:59

But from all of us on the weekend team, thanks for watching, bye-bye.

0:04:590:05:02

Good
