A statement from Fay on the Privileges Committee vote:
"I could've easily skipped last night’s vote and abstained but if I had, it would have been hard for me to look mu constituents in the eye.
Without doubt, it is deeply sad that Boris Johnson is no longer in Parliament. He is an incredible politician, possessed of enormous charm, zeal and optimism. He has a proud record to defend on Ukraine, delivery of the Coronavirus vaccine and making progress on Brexit where others couldn’t. But it is also fair to say that Boris made enormous mistakes.
Parliament commissioned a committee to investigate and its my role to uphold the integrity of Parliament and its structures.
But mostly I voted for the report last night because I wanted to draw a line under this ghastly episode. We have an enormous task ahead of us in reducing inflation, tackling immigration, growing our economy and – crucially – holding Welsh Labour to account for their woeful management of public services in Wales. With such pressures in front of us, it would be deeply wrong to choose to prolong our internal dramas ahead of the issues which matter most to our constituents."
