Britain has “no time to waste” in Brexit talks, Theresa May will warn as she says formal negotiations about leaving the European Union will start just 11 days after the election, writes The Telegraph.
The Prime Minister will tell supporters in Wales - which voted overwhelmingly to leave the European Union at the referendum – not to risk letting Jeremy Corbyn lead these talks.
On her first visit to Wales of the official election campaign, Mrs May will stress that she will not take support from Welsh voters “for granted” as she seeks to win a Tory landslide on June 8.
Mrs May will say: “There are just 17 days to go until this crucial General Election. Just 11 days after that, the European Union wants the Brexit negotiations to begin.
"The UK's seat at the negotiating table will be filled by me or Jeremy Corbyn. The deal we seek will be negotiated by me or Jeremy Corbyn.
"There will be no time to waste and no time for a new government to find its way. So the stakes in this election are high."
