Labour Government "sells Wales down the river" in Tory Withdrawal Bill deal


Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood has issued fierce criticism of the Labour Welsh Government for its "capitulation" on the EU Withdrawal Bill, accusing Labour ministers of "selling Wales down the river."

The Scottish Government has confirmed it will oppose the Withdrawal Bill on the grounds that the UK Government will restrict the devolved parliaments' ability to legislate in devolved fields for up to five years.
However, after being pressed on the matter this afternoon, Labour's Cabinet Secretary for External Affairs, Mark Drakeford confirmed that the Welsh Government had done a deal with the Tory UK Government in Westminster.
Commenting, Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood said:
“By capitulating to Westminster on the EU Withdrawal Bill, the Labour Government is selling Wales down the river.
"This is a bare-faced Westminster power grab which undermines the will of the people of Wales who voted for more powers in two referendums.
"By doing a backroom deal with the Tories in the UK Government, Labour Welsh ministers are yet again reminding us of Labour's belief that Westminster is superior to Wales.
"While Labour capitulates, Plaid Cymru will keep challenging this Westminster power grab and protecting Welsh democracy every step of the way."
