A Jersey politician found to have broken the Code of Conduct for States Members says he's disappointed in the findings of the inquiry.

Deputy Andrew Lewis was under investigation after being accused of lying to the States in 2008 when he was Home Affairs Minister.

He says he will await the full report from the Privileges and Procedures Committee before commenting further.

He has always denied any wrong doing.

I am disappointed in the findings announced by PPC that I broke the Code of Conduct for Elected Members on matters that date back to 2008. I have not been advised of any detail as to why the PPC have adjudicated in this way.

I have no option open to me but to await the publication of the PPC report, which will be in several weeks time. Until such time I am unable to comment further.

– Deputy Andrew Lewis, Chairman Public Accounts Committee
