Labour MPs are unable to get up for Monday morning meetings, according to a Cabinet Minister who has blamed them for the cancellation of a key parliamentary committee.

Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan claimed Labour MPs forced the postponement of next week's Welsh Grand Committee meeting in Westminster because it would have followed a weekend.

She said: "It's because Labour MPs have a problem getting up in the morning and getting to work by 11.30am on a Monday."

Speaking at Welsh questions in the Commons, Plaid Cymru's Westminster leader Elfyn Llwyd was angry the meeting had been cancelled, saying: "I'm rather disappointed there will be no Welsh Grand Committee on Monday.

"I don't know if it's to do with alarm clocks or whatever else it may be."
