Opposition leader Luke Foley confirmed the reports this afternoon.

"I have today discussed with Member for Wollongong Noreen Hay an investigation into her office by the Australian Federal Police," he said.

"During our discussion, Ms Hay offered to stand aside as Opposition whip pending the outcome of the investigation.

"I agreed that is the most appropriate course of action.

"I maintain that Ms Hay is entitled to due process.

"I understand Ms Hay has offered the AFP every assistance with the investigation, and continues to do so."
