    WELSH Environment Minister Alun Davies will not be sacked, despite him breaching the Ministerial Code.

    Mr Davies lobbied environment watchdog Natural Resources Wales over plans for a race track near Ebbw Vale.

    But First Minister Carwyn Jones said, although it was “clear" the code had been breached, the issues were "not clear cut", and therefore Mr Davies would be allowed to keep his job.

    The decision has been described as ‘indefensible’ by Welsh Liberal Democratleader aimages.intellitxt.com_ast_adTypes_icon1.png Kirsty Williams.
