Sack Alun Davies over race circuit lobbying, Tories say

The lobbying for a race circuit by the minister responsible for the environment broke guidelines over how ministers should act - but he will not be sacked.

Alun Davies had asked environment watchdog Natural Resources Wales to consider supporting plans for the circuit near Ebbw Vale in his Blaenau Gwent constituency.

First Minister Carwyn Jones said it was "clear" the code had been breached, and Mr Davies has apologised to AMs.

But opposition parties are now calling for a debate on the issue.

Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies told BBC Radio Wales that the minister should be sacked.
