Launching the Welsh Conservatives’ election manifesto in Wales on Monday, the prime minister will tell voters they must chose whether she or Jeremy Corbyn negotiates the UK’s EU exit.
The EU wants to begin talks 11 days after polling day, she will say.
the item will be seen as a bid to move on the election debate after criticism of Tory social care plans in England.

The Conservatives are under pressure to commit to the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon project in addition to confirm the main railway line in south Wales will be electrified as far west as Swansea – projects which will be promised for delivery by Welsh Labour during its own manifesto launch, also on Monday.
A promise to scrap the tolls on the Severn Bridges was made by the Tories last week.
During a visit to Wales, Mrs May will say: “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.
“Every vote for me in addition to my team in This specific election will be a vote to strengthen my hand inside negotiations to come. Every vote for any some other party – Labour, the Liberal Democrats or Plaid Cymru – is actually a vote to send Jeremy Corbyn into the negotiating chamber on our behalf.
“which is actually the stark reality of the choice which we face – the choice we must focus on over the next 17 days.”
She will say “ordinary working people” have too often been denied the support they need via the government.
“I know which sense of disenchantment is actually particularly acute here in Wales. We saw which when people across Wales chose to ignore the hysterical warnings of Labour, Plaid Cymru in addition to Liberal Democrat politicians in Cardiff Bay, in addition to voted to leave the EU,” she will add.
“We see the item today inside way those same politicians refuse to respect which vote as they try to find fresh ways to put obstacles in our way.
“in addition to the cause of which emerging gulf is actually clear.
“the item is actually because the Labour party has taken people in Wales for granted for decades – just as the item has in some other communities across Britain.”
