Responding to the news that Theresa May has invoked Article 50, leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats Mark Williams said:
“Theresa May has chosen the hardest and most divisive form of Brexit.
“She has chosen to force her own interpretation of the referendum outcome on Wales and the United Kingdom, tearing Wales’ businesses, farmers, and industry out of the world’s biggest single market.
“I welcome the commitment to the transfer of powers to Wales, however Wales must have the resources to effectively deliver for the people of Wales on those new powers.
“The Liberal Democrats will continue to fight for the people of the UK to have the last say on the final Brexit deal. Democracy didn’t end on 23rd of June – and it hasn’t ended today either."
