Prime Minister Trudeau Indicated that he liked the idea. In his letter of resignation to the prime minister, Mr. Mcllraith said he believes he is the first cabinet minister in this century to resign, without having any policy differences with the government, and to continue to sit as a private MP. He said it is regrettable that it has not been the practice, as it is in the United Kingdom, for ministers to leave the treasury benches and to continue as parliamentarians. "I believe our system of government could be strengthened by a more general use of the practice of moving members of the House into and out of government from time to time as particular circumstances of a personal nature, or indeed of a public nature, arise." In lu's letter to the retiring minister, the prime minister said he agrees that this should be more common in Canada. "If a senior minister such as you can, with no divergence of view oi' policy and no personal differences or strains, move from the ministry to the private benches, with continued public service in a new role, we may be able to establish a flexibility that can be greatly in the public interest." In his letter, Mr. Mcllraith stressed that the reasons for his resignation were purely personal. He referred to his two recent eye operations and "other personal matters affecting me" to the severe injuries suffered by his son in a car hits car sales DETROIT (AP) With dealer stocks still below normal as a result of this fall's 67-day United Auto Workers strike, General Motors reported Tuesday a 62-per-cent decline from last year in sales in the middle 10 days of December.
