I wish to report to the house that the rooms of a member were searched yesterday pursuant to a warrant issued by the circuit judge in Preston Crown Court on 16 May. The warrant related to the investigation of a serious arrestable offence.
I should remind members, as did my predecessor in 2008, that the precincts of parliament are not a haven from the law...The investigation is continuing and it would not be right to comment further. I will not take questions on my statement.
