The Welsh Liberal Democrats say a complaint into the behaviour of William Powell AM has been "treated seriously" and the Welsh Assembly Member for Mid and West Wales was "given a formal written warning."
The party received party received an anonymous complaint in May 2013, relating to an incident in June 2011.
We received an anonymous complaint in May 2013 about the behaviour of William Powell AM, when the complainant spoke to the chair of her local party.
This related to an incident that had occurred in June 2011. She indicated that she did not wish to follow a formal grievance procedure and wished to remain anonymous, but wanted the party to be aware of the issue.
Nevertheless, this complaint was treated seriously and a report compiled and passed to the Chief Whip, who is in charge of disciplinary issues within the Assembly group.
As a result, William Powell was interviewed by the Chief Whip and given a formal written warning that such behaviour will not be tolerated and any future misdemeanour could result in more serious sanctions being imposed.
This was communicated to the complainant via the Chair of the local party. Since that time no further complaint has been received.
