Honourable members of the committee, I see a quorum.
We can now proceed to the election of the chair. I am ready to receive motions to that effect.
The clerk of the committee can only receive motions for the election of the chair. The clerk cannot receive other types of motions, cannot entertain points of order, nor participate in debates.
Pursuant to Standing Order 106(2), the chair must be a member of the government party.
Are there any motions?
