Nafeza 2 world - Mr ap Iorwerth said: "We will fight every day for the billions owed to Wales from the HS2 high-speed rail project and for a fair funding model which funds our country according to need, not population.

"On 4 July, we can send a message that Wales won’t be taken for granted any longer and that’s only by electing a strong group of Plaid Cymru MPs that will always demand fairness for their square mile and put Wales' best interests first in Westminster."

Speaking on the Today Programme, Plaid Cymru general election candidate Liz Saville Roberts said the party was also looking to re-enter the European Union.

She said Wales was "kept in a state of continuous structural inequality within the United Kingdom".

So the "logical answer," she added, was to "improve our relationship with our nearest neighbours, which of course is to re-join the single market and the customs union".

After boundary changes, Plaid is defending two constituencies: Dwyfor Meirionnydd and Ceredigion Preseli.

It also hopes to fend off Labour and the Conservatives to gain another two target seats: Caerfyrddin and Ynys Mon.

Mr ap Iorwerth was appointed Plaid leader last June when his predecessor Adam Price stood down after a damning report into allegations of misogyny within the party.

Last month he led his party out of a co-operation agreement with Vaughan Gething's Welsh Labour government.

The party voted against First Minister Mr Gething in a no-confidence vote this month.
