Lib Dem Welsh AMs await their fate as report delayed

John Dixon and Aled Roberts (the ‘dangling’ Lib Dem Two) may have to wait until next week to find out whether they will be reinstated following their disqualification in May.

WalesOnline reports:

Members of all parties were due to receive a copy of an Assembly report yesterday afternoon into the case of Aled Roberts and John Dixon, who are accused of breaching rules by remaining affiliated to organisations whose members are barred from standing for office.

The report, by Gerard Elias QC, the Assembly’s Commissioner for Standards, was sent to party leaders over the weekend, and was due to go to AMs yesterday prior to group meetings today.

AMs were due to vote tomorrow on whether to overturn the rules and allow the pair back into the Assembly. But that vote is likely to be postponed until next week – the final week before the summer recess – after the report failed to land in their inboxes.
