Keith Davies - Labour statement

Following the news that the Llanelli AM Keith Davies has been discharged from hospital after nearly a month, a spokesman for the Assembly Labour grop said

We are pleased that Llanelli AM Keith Davies has been discharged from University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, and is currently recuperating at home.

After initial tests it was diagnosed that Keith had suffered a blood clot on the brain; a condition that was treated without surgery.

It is important that Keith is given as much time as he needs to recover fully before he returns to work at the Assembly and the Labour Group looks forward to seeing him as soon as he is well enough.

Keith and his family would like to thank all the medical professionals who gave him such first class care at the University Hospital of Wales.

Welsh Lib Dem leader's best wishes for seriously ill AM

The Welsh Liberal Democrat leader says 'it wouldn't be right' for the parties in the Assembly to take political advantage of the serious illness of Llanelli AM Keith Davies. Kirsty Williams said she understands that Plaid Cymru has made a temporary 'pairing' agreement with the Welsh Government.

Mr Davies' absence leaves Labour without a majority, but the Lib Dem leader said the pairing arrangement is 'appropriate' and that it would be wrong for the other parties to take advantage of the situation.

She also said that she'd sent a text to the First Minister Carwyn Jones when she'd heard about Mr Davies' illness asking him to pass on the best wishes and prayers of her and and her party.
