Cardiff meeting ponders post-Brexit future

Wales’ first minister Carwyn Jones has convened a meeting of the British-Irish Council to assess the potential impact of the Brexit vote on the eight administrations of the British Isles.

The meeting in Cardiff on 22 July brought together representatives of the UK and Irish governments, the devolved administrations of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and the governments of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.
