The Clerk: Honourable members, I have received the following communication from Her Excellency the Governor-General:

I desire to inform the House of Representatives that I have received a letter dated 24 November 2011 from Mr Jenkins MP tendering his resignation as Speaker of the House of Representatives, and that I have accepted his resignation.

Accordingly, I invite the House to elect a new Speaker.

The next business is the election of a Speaker.
