A formal Parliamentary inquiry has been launched into whether Minister Michael Wood complied with his obligations to declare certain interests under Parliament's Standing Orders.

Meanwhile another government minister, Jan Tinetti, will face questioning today by the privileges committee over accusations she deliberately misled Parliament.
