Commenting on Mark Reckless AM’s departure from the Welsh Conservative Group, Paul Davies AM, leader of the Welsh Conservatives, commented:
“I’d like to thank Mark for his valuable contribution as a part of the Welsh Conservative Group in the Assembly over the last two years and his ability to thoroughly challenge the record of this failing Welsh Labour Government.
“Mark worked with the Welsh Conservative Group because of our continued unity in the Welsh Assembly, our commitment to delivering Brexit and our focus on tackling this failing Welsh Labour Government who have taken the people of Wales for granted over the last 20 years.
“As the Official Opposition in the Assembly we will continue to hold the Welsh Labour Government to account. I appreciate there are strong views on Brexit but our commitment is clear – Wales and the rest of the United Kingdom must leave the European Union.”
