I have some sympathy for Under pressure Welsh environment minister Alun Davies whose under facing investigation into whether he broke government rules.
First Minister Carwyn Jones has announced the inquiry
Mr Davies wrote to the environment watchdog over plans for a race track, near Ebbw Vale, in his constituency.
Natural Resources Wales (NRW) expressed concerns over the £280m plans but later said it had been reassured.
It emerged last week that Mr Davies - whose portfolio includes overseeing NRW's work - had written to the organisation in his capacity as AM for Blaenau Gwent, urging it to reconsider.
In the letter he said he was "very concerned with the processes at work within NRW in this matter", and asked whether it was acting in line with all its statutory duties.
Mr Jones said a top civil servant would consider if Mr Davies's actions "conflicted" with his ministerial role.
Welsh ministers are in favour of the Circuit of Wales scheme.
If Mr Davies wrote in his capacity as an AM rather than as a Minister, I don't see what the problem is.
There may be a fine line between whether a elected representative is seen acting in a Ministerial Role or as a Representative of a constituency.
I share Natural Resources Wales (NRW) expressed concerns about the proposed race track and am also cynical whether it is actually financially viable . It seems to have the potential of being a White Elephant.
But as the local AM Alun Davies should be allowed to support the scheme and in that capacity write to NRW.
But the problem is there's always a danger of drifting into Pork Barrel Poltics
The term pork barrel politics usually refers to spending which is intended to benefit constituents of a politician in return for their political support, either in the form of campaign contributions or votes.
Its a difficult area Minister still have to look after the Interest of their constituents but they can't use their position to unduly benefit their constituency .
That's why we have Ministerial Code, the rulebook which governs ministers' conduct..
“4.4 Where Ministers have to take decisions on their own portfolios which might have a particular impact on their own constituencies or electoral regions, they should take particular care to avoid any possible conflict of interest. Where Ministers are uncertain about whether a conflict arises between their Ministerial and constituency/regional responsibilities they should consult the First Minister, for decision as to how the business is to be handled.
The question is did Mr Davies break the rules ?
He may well have been doing the job he was elected to represent his constituency but he should know how much his Ministerial Role affected this.
If he has he should go even though it may be a little unfair.
