Mr. DEPUTY SPEAKER:
I have the
honour to inform the house that the Speaker has received the following communication: House of Commons.
Dominion of Canada.
To the Honourable the Speaker of the House of Commons.
I, Henry Lumley Drayton, member of the House of Commons of Canada, for the electoral district of West York, do hereby resign my seat in the said House of Commons, for the constituency aforesaid.
Given under my hand and seal at the city of Ottawa, this twenty-third day of April, nineteen hundred and twenty-eight.

The Speaker also received the following letter:
The Honourable, the Speaker of the House of Commons, Ottawa, Ont.
Dear Mr. Speaker:
I enclose herewith my resignation as member of the house. This course, severing as it does many happy associations, I find necessary owing to my acceptance of the chairmanship of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario.
May I thank you and the members of the house for the kindness and consideration always shown me, and for the lasting friendships I am proud to think I carry with me.
H. L. Drayton.
