Senator Philip Ozouf defends involvement in Innovation Fund

Senator Philip Ozouf has defended his involvement in the Innovation Fund, which is expected to lose £1.4m of tax payers' money.

The Assistant Chief Minister was in charge of the project, which lent money to a business which later went into liquidation.

Senator Ozouf says he is "disgusted and dismayed" that he was "given the responsibility" but not "all the information that was required".

Watch him speaking to Jess Dunsdon in our studio last night.
