PM MUST NOT GAMBLE WITH PEOPLE'S JOBS - FIRST MINISTER

Welsh Labour's First Minister, Carwyn Jones, has written to the Prime Minister calling on her to put the UK economy above political self-interest and reconsider plans for a ‘hard Brexit’. 

The First Minister said the outcome of the General Election means the UK Government has no mandate to put barriers in the way of continued full and unfettered access to the Single Market and has called on the Prime Minister to convene an urgent meeting of the Joint Ministerial Committee to agree the UK’s Brexit negotiating position. 

The First Minister has also said the JMC meeting should include the leaders of the Democratic Unionist Party and of Sinn Fein, even if such a meeting takes place before the formation of a new Northern Ireland Executive.

Carwyn Jones also questioned whether the Brexit deal would now be possible during the two year deadline because of the current political situation.
