Ahead of the Queen’s Speech, Plaid Cymru’s Westminster Leader, Liz Saville Roberts MP has said that “we are in a fight for the very future of Wales as a nation”.
Ms Saville Roberts said that the Conservatives have shown time and again that the Conservatives do not respect devolution.
Her comments follow increasing concerns that the Westminster Conservative Government will look to take over post-Brexit regional investment policy, as well as other areas that are overseen by the Senedd whilst the UK is in the EU.
Liz Saville Roberts MP said:
“When you look beyond the pomp and the pageantry, when you scratch beneath the sprinkling of populist policies, the reality is that behind the facade of Get Brexit Done, this Tory Government lacks a credible, costed plan to deliver genuine transformation.
“Instead, it seems they will recycle that last Queen Speech with a smattering of new ideas from a manifesto which was criticised for lacking ambition.
“We are in a fight for the very future of Wales as a nation and we cannot be complacent.
"Whilst Labour remain divided with their attention once again turned inwards, Plaid Cymru will not let the people of Wales down.
“We will continue with the vital work of defending our communities and resist all attempts by Westminster to take powers from Wales.”
