Sacked Tory AMs to be reinstated

Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies will tomorrow reinstate the four AMs he sacked from his Shadow Cabinet in February. Antoinette Sandbach, Nick Ramsay, Janet Finch-Saunders and Mohammad Asghar were stripped of their rôles after defying the party whip during a Senedd vote.

All four will be given front bench jobs although not necessarily those they were doing before they were sacked. You can read the background to the story by clicking here.

What's changed? The group's dispute sprang from their leader's disagreement with the former Welsh Secretary David Jones. Now that he's been replaced by Stephen Crabb, both sides are looking to heal the breach.
