'Drink' complaint levelled against Conservative AM

The Presiding Officer has been asked to investigate claims that a Conservative Assembly Member had been drinking before he spoke in the Senedd chamber yesterday. A member of the public has accused Monmouthshire AM Nick Ramsay of making contributions that 'were slurred, incoherent and insolent.'

The Welsh Conservatives have not yet commented nor has Mr Ramsay. It's understood that it was his birthday yesterday but he's told colleagues that he had not been drinking. The Presiding Officer is due to make a response imminently.
