Member for Kiama Gareth Ward has stood aside from his ministerial role, as a result of accusations made today.

In a statement Mr Ward says, "Today I have been made aware by a journalist of an investigation into me by NSW Police.

I have not been contacted by Police in relation to any allegations.

I deny any wrongdoing.

Until this matter is resolved, it is appropriate I stand aside from my role as Minister. I will also remove myself from the Liberal Party room.

I will not be making any further comment at this time."
