MY OPINION

I agree with the importance of connectivity, and I am aware of the real risk that rural economies like Dwyfor Meirionnydd are left behind without universal broadband, 3G, 4G and mobile signal.

I also believe that there should be an even playing field for other providers to step in and offer affordable solutions when BT aren’t prepared to reach out to remote communities, homes and businesses.

The people of Wales voted to leave the European Union and we must respect that decision, but nobody has voted for a ‘hard Brexit’

Being dragged out of the single market and the customs union as well as the European Union will devastate the Welsh economy and we will continue to resist any attempts to do so.

It is ironic that after months of rhetoric around making Parliament sovereign, the UK Government wanted to bypass Parliament on a decision of such importance.

It is right that the UK Parliament should have a say, but it is important too that the national Parliaments of the UK have a say too, including the National Assembly for Wales.
