Welsh Conservatives respond to First Minister’s call for a delay to Brexit

Darren Millar AM has criticised the Welsh Government after the First Minister issued a letter earlier today (March 24), calling on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to delay Brexit negotiations.

Mr Millar, the Welsh Conservative spokesperson for Brexit, said:

“Now is not the time for this. The UK Parliament, the Welsh Parliament, and the administrations in the other devolved nations are focusing on an international emergency as we combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

“All parties have been working in a unified way to deal with Coronavirus, and for the Welsh Government to detract our focus from the pandemic smacks of opportunism.

“I would urge the First Minister to withdraw his letter, and continue to focus of this most pressing crisis."
