AMs go ahead with a censure vote against Bethan Jenkins despite her absence from the chamber to attend a rally for Visteon pensioners in London.
Bethan Jenkins has taken to Twitter to answer criticism of her decision to miss a vote of censure on her in the Assembly and instead attend a protest in London by former Visteon workers who've lost their pensions.
AMs went ahead in her absence to censure Bethan Jenkins for her drink-driving conviction. She responded to criticism from the Liberal Democrat Peter Black for staying away from the Senedd.
AMs have passed a vote of censure on Bethan Jenkins for bringing the Assembly into disrepute. They went ahead although the Plaid Cymru AM was not in the chamber and her party had offered to agree to a delay so that she could attend. She was criticised for attending a protest in London instead.
The Plaid Cymru Whip, Jocelyn Davies has told AMs that Bethan Jenkins missed the censure vote over her drink-driving conviction because she joined former Visteon workers protesting in London at their loss of pensions. Ms Davies said Plaid would support delaying the censure motion if AMs wanted.
Assembly Members have passed a motion of censure on Bethan Jenkins, following the Plaid Cymru AM's conviction for drink driving. She was not in the Senedd for the debate and was criticised for not following the example of Keith Davies, the Labour AM who apologised when he was censured last year.
