Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood, has restored the party whip to Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas today, cancelling any disciplinary proceedings against him.
This afternoon Ms Wood made an announcement in the Senedd which confirmed that she would end the disciplinary proceedings against Lord Elis-Thomas. Ms Wood had the party whip temporarily withdrawn from Lord Elis-Thomas after he missed a crucial vote of no confidence against Health Minister, Lesley Griffiths on Wednesday.
Lord Elis-Thomas remained in Bangor, where he was presiding over graduation ceremonies, despite being ordered to return to Cardiff Bay to take part in the vote.
Today, Plaid sources say Ms Wood did not hold any discussions with the Dwyfor Meirionnydd AM, but has informed all her members how AMs who disagree with party policy will be expected to behave in future.
Dafydd Elis-Thomas says he will consider 'the unexpected statement' by Leanne Wood but will not comment further at present.
Today, he was at the last of this week's Bangor University degree ceremonies when he learnt that he's had the Plaid Cymru whip restored and no longer faces disciplinary action.
