Honourable members of the subcommittee, I see a quorum.
I must inform members that the clerk of the subcommittee 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 debate.
We can now proceed to the election of the chair. Pursuant to a motion adopted by the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development on February 4, 2016, the chair of the subcommittee must be a member of the government party.
I am ready to receive motions for the chair.
