The Great Repeal Bill, unveiled by the UK Government today, sets the UK on the path to becoming an independent, sovereign nation again – according to the Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Andrew RT Davies.


He said it represents a great opportunity for the National Assembly for Wales, as a range of powers are repatriated from Brussels.


Mr Davies said:


“Conservatives in Government are delivering on the will of the people, and the Great Repeal Bill is a vital step on the road to making the United Kingdom an independent, sovereign nation once again.


“From a legislative point of view, it offers great opportunities for the UK and the National Assembly for Wales, because we are witnessing the repatriation of a range of powers which had transferred to Brussels.


“However, the First Minister must now work positively with the UK Government to ensure that we get a deal which works for everyone.


“The shambolic, ‘wrecking ball’ approach taken by his colleagues in Westminster will help no-one, and he must also distance himself from cynical attempts by Leanne Wood to harness support for Welsh independence.   


“This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to chart a positive new course for the United Kingdom and for the people Wales.”

Can YOU Help?

And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
