The Conservative candidate in the Alyn and Deeside by-election has welcomed the announcement of a £50 million fund to help Welsh businesses prepare for Brexit – but has called on the First Minister to stop acting like a ‘doom merchant’ as we get ready to leave the EU.

Sarah Atherton said: ‘This EU Transition Fund is a move in the right direction, but the First Minister must now show real leadership and stop talking Brexit down.

‘The people of Alyn and Deeside voted to leave the EU. That is what they expect to happen. It is a pity that can’t expect a positive attitude from the Welsh Labour Government on the changes and opportunities Brexit will bring.’

The former nurse has been out campaigning in the constituency, where the by-election will be held on February 6th.

‘The people I have spoken to realise there will be challenges ahead. But I say those challenges need to be met with confidence and strong leadership – not by a merchant of doom anxious to sow the seeds of doubt at every opportunity.’
