Plaid Assembly Member to face standards investigation

The case of Plaid Cymru's Bethan Jenkins is to be looked at by the Assembly's Standards watchdog. The South Wales West AM was reinstated to her party's group in the Senedd this morning. She'd been suspended after being charged with drink-driving, a charge to which she later pleaded guilty.

An Assembly spokesman has confirmed her case will now be considered by the Standards Commissioner.

The matter is now in the hands of the Standards Commissioner and he will deal with it as appropriate.

The Commissioner will consider if there is a case to be answered and will report his findings to the Standards Committee which will in turn decide whether or not to investigate.
