Her Majesty the Queen has today accepted the Right Reverend Dr Peter Hollingworth’s resignation as Governor-General and revoked his Commission with effect on and from 29 May 2003

The Governor of Tasmania, the Honourable Sir Guy Green AC, KBE, CVO, will continue to administer the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia for the time being.

I hope that all Australians will join me in wishing Dr Hollingworth and his wife, Ann, well for the future.
