I'm going to start on time so members get fair time with the minister.
Good morning, and welcome to the 66th meeting of the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs.
This meeting is being televised.
Pursuant to our mandate Standing Order 108(3)(a)(iii), which provides the review of Standing Orders procedure and practice in the House and its committee, we have with us today the Honourable Bardish Chagger, Leader of the Government in the House of Commons.
Committee members will remember that we agreed on May 18 to invite Ms. Chagger to meet with us to discuss potential changes to the Standing Orders, as outlined in her April 30 letter to the House leaders of the official opposition and the NDP.
Thank you very much for coming, Minister. We really appreciate it. I know it's very busy at the end of the year here.
We'll open it for your opening remarks.
