Summary

This is from the published bill. The Library of Parliament often publishes better independent summaries.

This enactment amends the Financial Administration Act to, among other things, permit that a special warrant, authorizing a payment out of the Consolidated Revenue Fund, may be issued while Parliament is in session but is not sitting. It also provides for the repeal of that amendment on June 24, 2020, such that special warrants will be issued, as before, only when Parliament is not in session.
