I will call this meeting to order. This is meeting number 20 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates. The committee will meet again this Friday for a final time before Parliament is adjourned, and we will be meeting from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. EST on Friday.
Colleagues, we have already heard from the PSPC officials. They will not be making an opening statement, and we do have the speaking notes from the Privy Council Office, which have been distributed in both official languages.
I would like to move, colleagues—similar to what I have done on a number of occasions before to allow us to get more time for questions—that the speaking notes presented by Matthew Shea of the Privy Council Office be taken as read and appended to the evidence of today's meeting.
Do I have consent for that motion?
