2011 Gorffenaf 6 4:29 PM

Commenting on the decision of the National Assembly to disregard the disqualification of Aled Roberts, Kirsty Williams, Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats said:

"I am obviously very pleased that the Assembly has decided to disregard the disqualification of Aled Roberts. The advice of Gerard Elias QC was clear and I am delighted that that legal advice was taken on board by Assembly Members. I believe that today, the Assembly showed itself to be a mature institution, confident enough to take the right course of action to right a wrong.

"Aled Roberts can now get on with the job of representing the people of North Wales who elected him. I know that he will do so with distinction, enhancing the reputation of not just his party but the Assembly.

"As I have said before, this case raises issues for many people and organisations, not least my own party but those are discussions for another day."
