Kumamoto city assembly decided Wednesday to issue a written warning to a lawmaker who caused a stir last week by bringing her 7-month-old baby to the assembly hall, saying it was a breach of rules.

Yuka Ogata, 42, apologized for causing a delay to the Nov. 22. session. She had earlier claimed that she brought her son with her in the hope that the body would become friendlier for women who are trying to juggle careers and children.
