Delete all and replace with:

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Regrets that the UK Government’s draft withdrawal agreement substantially negates the referendum result, by keeping the UK indefinitely in the customs union and, effectively, in the single market, while depriving us of any formal voice or vote in European Union decisions.

2. Endorses an exit from the European Union with no deal and under World Trade Organisation terms, in order to fulfil the wishes of the people of the UK, and Wales, who voted decisively to leave the European Union.

3.     Calls upon the UK Government and the Welsh Government to embrace the restoration of Britain's national sovereignty outside the European Union.
