Opposition leader Andrew RT Davies has welcomed the Presiding Officer's decision to recall the Assembly on 19th December. He said:
While we deplore the laziness and inaction of Labour Ministers, which brought about this debacle, we welcome the cross party discussions which have resulted in this sensible agreement to recall Assembly Members.
Although not perfect, this timetable will allow robust scrutiny of the Welsh Government’s proposals and ensure the effective implementation of Council Tax support.
The First Minister says he's reached agreement with Plaid Cymru and the Liberal Democrats ahead of next week's Assembly recall.
The Assembly could be recalled after the Welsh Government failed to push through new council tax benefit rules
