Disciplinary proceedings against a Bradford Liberal Democrat for comments he made about "the Jews" have been adjourned while he is given training on what language he should use, the party said.
Bradford East MP David Ward was summoned to a meeting with party leader Nick Clegg and chief whip Alistair Carmichael where he was told his use of the phrase was "unacceptable and must not be repeated".
During the hearing Mr Ward agreed to remove the comments from his website and said he would work with the Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel to "agree language" that is proportionate, according to the party.
