Responding to the new Boris Johnson has set a deadline of July to secure a deal with the European Union, Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Jane Dodds said:

”The PM is trying posture his way out of the corner that he's backed himself into. He wants to stage manage the situation so that he can blame the EU if talks fail.

"A negotiation is a two way process. We cannot expect to lay down all our red lines and never budge, as Theresa May learnt the hard way. By refusing to genuinely negotiate the Conservatives are gambling with our future.

"The PM needs to ditch this reckless deadline and commit to securing a deal that protects Welsh farmers and businesses by maintaining tariff-free access to our vital European markets."
