Health Minister survives no confidence vote

Breaking news ...

The BBC is reporting that Wales' health minister has narrowly survived a no-confidence vote in a row about a controversial report into reorganising hospital services.

Opposition parties tabled the motion against Lesley Griffiths after emails emerged between the report's academic author and civil servants.

The motion was not binding, meaning it would not have forced her to resign.

It came after she defended officials against allegations they colluded with health economist Marcus Longley.

In the Senedd today, the vote was 29-28 in favour of Ms Griffiths who is the Assembly Member for nearby Wrexham.
