Resignation of ministerial portfolios
Last night, when driving home, I was stopped by the police and failed a breath alcohol test.
I recognise that such behaviour calls into question my ability to continue to hold my ministerial warrants and I have therefore offered the Prime Minister my resignation from all ministerial positions forthwith.
I sincerely regret both my behaviour and the embarrassment this will cause the government
