Jamie-Lee Ross is now believed to be the leaker.

Listen above as Newstalk ZB Political Editor Barry Soper speaks with Simon Bridges in an exclusive interview.

Earlier today, a report into the leaking of Bridges expenses in August found that on the balance of probability, it was Botany MP Jami-Lee Ross who leaked the information regarding Simon Bridges' expenses.

An official decision will be made tomorrow on the future of  Jami-Lee Ross, with National Party leader Simon Bridges telling Barry Soper they will wait until tomorrow before any announcements take place. Bridges also said he is confident he will remain the Party's leader.

“This is now a matter for the 56 members of parliament to decide, but suspension is now an option. I feel very strongly I have the confidence of my colleagues, and what we have here is from a sole member of parliament."
