Statement by the First Minister following Joint Ministerial Committee
First Minister Carwyn Jones said:
“There is still huge uncertainty about what success will look like from the UK Government. That makes it difficult for the devolved administrations to positively influence the process, but we are still committed to working for the best deal for Wales.
“I argued very strongly for full and unfettered access to the single market – my key priority remains the Welsh economy and securing more and better jobs for Wales. For us, that must be the starting point for negotiations.
“I welcome the fact the UK Government has conceded to the demands of the devolved administrations to meet more frequently, and for us to have a meaningful role in developing the future work programme relating to Brexit.”
