During Welsh questions last April, the Minister said:

“The extent of Welsh agricultural produce that is exported to the EU shows how important that market is;
90% of Welsh agricultural produce is exported to the EU and we should not risk losing that.”—[Official Report, 13 April 2016;
Vol. 608, c. 341.]

Given those comments, will he explain why his Government wish to leave the single market?
