I call to order the meeting. We're dealing with Bill C-74, the budget implementation bill. It was referred yesterday to committee.
We have with us today a number of Finance Canada officials and an official from the Department of Veterans Affairs. They will be making short presentations on parts 1, 2, and 4 of the bill, and then we'll go to questioning. If time allows, we may move on to parts 3 and 5 of the bill. If not, we'll be dealing with those, plus part 6, at our meeting tomorrow.
I trust the committee is satisfied with that approach.
Hearing no objections, we'll start with part 4. We have Madam Norrie, Acting Senior Director at the Policy Directorate of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Ms. Norrie, the floor is yours, on part 4, “Canadian Forces Members and Veterans”.
