Mr. MacLean:

While 1 consider my new responsibilities a great challenge, it is naturally not without regrets that I leave this chamber after 25 years' service. I will especially miss the honour of representing the people of the constituency of Malpeque, some of whom were also members of my former constituency of Queen's. They have done me the honour of electing me ten consecutive times to this chamber, thus making me their representative in one third of the parliaments elected since Confederation.

Hon. J. A. MacLean (Malpeque):

Mr. Speaker, I want to take advantage of this occasion to make a brief statement. It is a matter of personal privilege for me to say that I am resigning my seat in this House effective midnight tonight in order to contest a seat in the legislature in my home province of Prince Edward Island, where I have been chosen provincial leader of the Progressive Conservative Party.

Mr. MacLean:

I would like to record my deep appreciation to you, Mr. Speaker, and to all the members and staff of this House for the many courtesies extended to me on so many occasions. I will miss the many friendships I have been fortunate to enjoy among you.

I will, of course, miss working in the parliamentary associations in which I have been active, and I will miss my work as chairman of the Standing Committee on Management and Members Services and the close association this entailed with the Commissioners of Internal Economy.

Whatever the future holds, I hope I may be able to retain at least most of the friendships I have enjoyed here. Let me wish you all continuing good health and satisfaction in your respective responsibilities to our country.

Mr. MacLean:

-it is obvious that this occasion is non-partisan. Therefore in my remarks I will try to follow the trend that has been set.

My first words are to express my appreciation to colleagues in my party who have stood aside to give me the opportunity to speak on this occasion. I must tell you, Mr. Speaker, that it must be obvious to anyone that when our whip asks someone to step aside, that person has no other choice but to do so. Since I

was given that privilege, I discovered by accident that it was 25 years ago, to the day, that I made my maiden speech in the House of Commons.
