Premier tells Speaker to resign

On Saturday afternoon Premier Panton issued a statement which outlined that he had received media inquiries concerning the statements made by the Speaker of the House, and as reported in Loop News

“It is disappointing that some Members of Parliament cannot show restraint”, he stated

“Prior to departing for London on Thursday afternoon 15 September, I issued a strongly worded letter to the Speaker, suggesting that he resign on, or before, Friday, 23 September 2022. Whilst a formal written resignation has not been given, I can confirm that I received several messages from Mr. Bush on Friday morning, stating multiple times his intention to resign as Speaker.

He indicated that it was his intention to wait until after the Official Period of National Mourning, and after Mr Bush had submitted his written resignation to the Clerk of Parliament, to issue any further statement on this matter.

He further encourage all residents to show respect and exercise restraint as the final days of the Official Period of National Mourning are concluded

“Now more than ever, let us honour the legacy of Her Late Majesty and be guided by her example of leadership, public service, humility, dignity and grace,” he added

His letter to Mr Bush is attached for reference
