The Conservatives have accused the Welsh government of "tribalism" and having the approach to politics "of an authoritarian regime" after Labour AMs were whipped to vote down backbench proposals two weeks running.
Both were proposed by Conservative AMs - Paul Davies had put forward a bill to improve support for people with Autism and Darren Millar's bill would have strengthened the rights of older people.
Although both men are senior figures - Mr Davies is Leader of the Tory assemble members - they had introduced their legislation as individual AMs, after winning the opportunity in a ballot.
Following his bill's defeat, Mr Davies used his weekly chance to question the First Minister to urge a change in the Welsh Government's approach.
In the debate on his bill to protect the rights of older people, Darren Millar urged the Welsh government to take "a historic opportunity".
But the Welsh Government argued that it was not the right time to legislate.
After his bill was voted down, Mr Millar angrily referred to the Welsh Government as a "regime".
