The deputy leader of Powys Council has been "severely reprimanded" for using racially offensive language at a council meeting.
Myfanwy Alexander used the n-word in a debate about cross-border health services.
She has apologised for using the term, which she said was a "careless word".
Ms Alexander was speaking about the treatment of some patients when they travel over the border to Shropshire for treatment.
