Welsh bid to block Brexit bill impact.

The Welsh Government has confirmed it aims to formally object to Theresa May's plan to transfer EU laws to the UK at the point of Brexit.

First Minister Carwyn Jones has called the repeal bill a "blatant power-grab".

Plans have now been published to hold a Senedd vote on a legislative consent motion, on the grounds that the repeal bill will affect devolved powers.

Ex-Welsh Secretary David Jones has said there is a case for EU powers in areas such as farming to go to Westminster.
