Police investigate Against a MP,PM Key Accepted Worth resignantion

The Wellington Police is now investigating a complaint against a sitting Member of Parliament .

Preliminary inquiries were made and the complaint transferred to Wellington Police for further investigation by Detective Inspector Paul Basham, head of Wellington City CIB.

As Labour Leader took an allegation of Richard Worth's inappropriate behaviour towards a woman to Prime Minister John Key about a month ago, it emerged tonight.

The allegation is understood not to be the one which resulted in Mr Worth resigning his ministerial portfolio last night.

Mr Key said today he had previously looked into an allegation around Mr Worth's behaviour and was satisfied with the answers he received.

However,Prime Minister John Key says he has accepted the resignation of Dr Richard Worth as a Minister in the National-led Government.

"Dr Worth tendered his resignation to me last night, and I have accepted it.

"He advised me of some private matters in respect of which he felt it appropriate that he should resign as a Minister. I accepted his resignation and have advised the Governor-General accordingly.

"I will not be making further comment on the matters he has advised me about.

"Dr Worth's ministerial responsibilities will be temporarily transferred to Maurice Williamson. I will be making an announcement about permanent appointments to the portfolios in the near future."
