In response to the EU referendum result, Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has issued the following statement:
“I am very disappointed with last night’s referendum result. The important thing, however, is now to look to the future and to recognise that Britain, and especially Wales, must not look inward but forge new relationships with Europe and the wider world. Trade is vital to our economic well-being and we must do our utmost to ensure that we are able to export easily to as many markets as possible.
“We must also reject intolerance and prejudice. In the modern world, it is vital that we work with others across national borders and recognise that there is more which unites human beings than divides them”.
