Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to inform the house that I have this morning received a letter of resignation as a member of the government from the Hon. Paul Hellyer, Minister of Transport, and that I have recommended to the Deputy Governor General, the Right Hon. Mr. Justice Cartwright, that the minister's resignation be accepted.
I will table later in the day correspondence exchanged between the minister and myself relative to the resignation.
