Labour minister in Wales sacked for abusing his position

Last week, as you can read on the BBC website here, Welsh Environment minister Alun Davies was found to have broken the ministerial code by lobbying the Welsh Environent Agency (for which he was responsible) about a planning application in his constituency.

The opposition parties in Wales had called for a debate about this breach of the code, and in particular about the fact that he had not been sacked for it.

He has now been sacked for a further breach of the code, this time pressurising his civil servants for private information on members of other parties, apparently for party political purposes, as you can read here.
