Resignation of Speaker of the House of Assembly

The House of Assembly advises that the Honourable Perry Trimper, MHA for Lake Melville, has resigned as Speaker effective immediately.

The election of a new Speaker will be the first order of business when the House of Assembly reconvenes. Until that time, Deputy Speaker Scott Reid, MHA for St. George’s-Humber, will act as the Speaker.
