Independent MP Geoff Shaw has apologised to the Victorian parliament after his suspension for misusing his parliamentary entitlements.

“I humbly and sincerely apologise to the house and to the people of Victoria for my breach of the code of conduct for members,” Mr Shaw told parliament in a short prepared speech.

Mr Shaw said he understood the issue had been a distraction.

“I accept and I’ve always stated throughout the various investigations including a thorough and rigorous investigation by the Department of Public Prosecution, which found no wrongful action, that the buck stops with me, and I have taken full responsibility,” Mr Shaw said.
