moved for leave to introduce Bill C-330, An Act to establish the Advisory Committee for Effective Treatment and Rehabilitation of Veterans with Service-Related Brain Injuries.

Mr. Speaker, my bill aims to establish an advisory committee for the effective treatment and rehabilitation of veterans with service-related brain injuries and sets out the composition, mandate and duties of the committee.

Specifically, an advisory committee would be established, consisting of representatives from Veterans Affairs, the Department of National Defence, officers and non-commissioned members of the Canadian Forces, veterans suffering service-related brain injury, et cetera.

The committee would evaluate the care and support provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs to veterans with a brain injury; identify facilities where program enhancement is needed; identify successful programs for the treatment and rehabilitation of veterans with a service-related brain injury and recommend implementation; advise the minister on policies, research needs and priorities and the appropriate allocation of resources; and would report to the minister on the measures put in place and resources supplied.

I thank our veterans, physicians, the Brain Injury Association of Canada and the Neurological Health Charities Canada who have supported this. I hope all hon. members will support this bill.
