To keep us on course, let us not forget that we are talking about pandemic-related emergencies. The pandemic is not over yet.
I only want to streamline things. The House will not sit every week or every day. Normally the committee would not meet either.
I am proposing that we do our work at the same pace as the House. We should all remember—and I have no problem saying this—that, while it is important for all parliamentarians to follow House business, it is also important that our own teams, including the analysts' and the clerks' teams, have time off for work-family balance and for vacation.
For these reasons, I propose that, as of July 20, we meet in the same week as the House. Yes, I am removing one day, but I think that strikes a nice balance between House business and committee business.
