NDM6741 Julie James (Swansea West)

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Notes that it will be the second anniversary of the EU Referendum on 23 June 2018.

2. Reaffirms its support for the approach to EU transition put forward in the White Paper, Securing Wales Future, published by the Welsh Government and Plaid Cymru in January 2017 and believes this still provides the best basis for securing a satisfactory outcome to the Brexit negotiations.

Securing Wales’ Future

The following amendments have been tabled:

Amendment 1 - Paul Davies (Preseli Pembrokeshire)

Delete point 2 and replace with:

Recognises that the UK Government is delivering on the decision made in the EU referendum to leave the EU and that its position in negotiations with the EU should not be undermined.

[If amendment 1 is agreed, amendment 2 will be de-selected]

Amendment 2 - Caroline Jones (South Wales West)

Delete point 2 and replace with:

Recognises that it is the decided will of the people that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.

Calls upon politicians opposed to the United Kingdom leaving the EU to respect the wishes of Welsh and British voters and stop trying to undermine the Brexit process.

Calls upon the Welsh Government to work with the UK Government to secure the best deal for Wales and the UK, outside the EU, the single market and the customs union.

Amendment 3 - Rhun ap Iorwerth (Ynys Môn)

Add as new point at end of motion:

Regrets the Welsh Government’s decision to grant consent for the UK Government to restrict the National Assembly for Wales’s legislative competence, despite stating clearly in ‘Securing Wales’ Future’ that “any attempt to do so will be firmly resisted”.

Amendment 4 - Rhun ap Iorwerth (Ynys Môn)

Add as new point at end of motion:

Regrets that a majority of Welsh Labour MPs abstained on a vote on continued single market participation via EEA membership, in contradiction to 'Securing Wales’ Future' which states, “We cannot support an EU exit agreement that would leave the UK without continued Single Market participation”.
