In a day of extraordinary news, it's been revealed that Russell George MS is also being investigated by the Gambling Commission over election betting.

In a statement, Mr George said:

Whilst I will cooperate fully with the Gambling Commission, it would not be appropriate to comment on this independent and confidential process.

Doing so would only jeopardise and undermine the investigation. It is the Gambling Commission, not the media, that has the responsibility, powers and resources to properly investigate these matters and determine what, if any, action should be taken.

I have stepped back from the Shadow Cabinet while the investigation is ongoing. I have done this as I do not wish to be an unnecessary distraction to their work.

As such I will not be providing any further public comment on this until the Gambling Commission has concluded its work.
