Peter Hain has quit the Cabinet after his deputy leader campaign donations were referred to the Met Police.
Mr Hain, work and pensions secretary and Wales secretary, said he had stood down so he could "clear my name".
He quit within minutes of the Electoral Commission saying that it had decided to refer the late declaration of £103,000 of donations to the police.
