Recently I have been dealing with some personal health issues.

There are times in life where you have to put your own health and family first. As a husband and a father I need to do that at this time.

That is why I have asked to have some time off on medical leave for a few months.

Simon has been very understanding and agreed to this along with my request that my Transport and Infrastructure portfolios be reallocated and that I step back from my front bench role.

I look forward to returning to Parliament in the future to re-join our Caucus.

I will not be making any further comment and ask for privacy.

Thank you.
