New kid on the block

We had a visitor yesterday when Plaid Cymru AM, Leanne Wood returned briefly from maternity leave to help vote through a measure calling for a 500 metre exclusion zone around opencast sites. Her vote swung opinion sufficiently to defeat Labour by 29 to 28 on the issue. The visitor, however, was not Leanne but her six week old daughter, Cerys Amelia, who she brought into the chamber.

It is worth recording that it is unlikely that Leanne would have been able to do this in Westminster. The Western Mail records that "Ms Wood's daughter made very little noise." Clearly, she has not got into the swing of things as Plenary tends to generate quite a lot of noise.
