Labour reprimands AM for 'wholly unacceptable behaviour'

Here's the full statement from a Welsh Labour spokesman:

Following the decision by the Assembly to censure Keith Davies for his wholly unacceptable behaviour, the Labour Group Chief Whip has today officially reprimanded the Llanelli AM.

This follows careful consideration of all issues surrounding this incident and takes full account of the comprehensive report undertaken by the Assembly standards of conduct committee and the decision taken by Assembly Members today.

An official reprimand from the Labour Group is one of the most serious sanctions open to the Chief Whip. We have sought and received assurances that Mr Davies takes full responsibility for this incident and have been assured that this sort of behaviour will not happen again.
