Five months later, police refer Billy Gordon case to lawyers

THE police investigation into domestic violence allegations made against former Labor MP turned independent Billy Gordon has been completed.

But the outcome of the five month investigation is still unknown, with a police spokesman only saying it had been "referred for legal opinion".

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk referred allegations the Cook MP had been violent towards a former partner to police in the first sitting week of the new government.

Ms Palaszczuk had been among a group of MPs to receive a letter from Mr Gordon's former partner asking for help in recouping unpaid child support.

Mr Gordon stood up in Parliament and admitted to not meeting his child support payments, but later that same day, further allegations contained in the letter were made public.
