Parliament's Speaker Vincent Tarzia has commissioned an inquiry through a private investigator, despite admitting he did not have any power to discipline Mr Duluk if there was a finding of wrongdoing.

Premier Steven Marshall said he had only just learned of the police investigation moments before he was due to address the media on a separate matter.

He said it was now a matter for police.

"I don't have any specific information and I've only just seen the media reports," he said.

"That's clearly a matter for the police to conduct and the Government won't be intervening in any way."

The Premier would not comment on whether or not he thought it was appropriate for the backbencher to remain in Parliament, or the Liberal Party.

"I'd rather just get an update from the police before I make any comment," he said.

Mr Marshall said Ms Bonaros had not raised any concerns with him about the handling of the incident since last December.

He said he hoped the matter would be resolved in the "next few days".
