I'd like to call to order the Subcommittee on Private Members' Business of the Standing Committee of Procedure and House Affairs.
This is our first meeting. I think all of you have received not only a copy of all the private members' bills, but also the spreadsheet that our analysts have prepared for us to walk through these bills today in an orderly manner.
We will begin with Bill C-317. We will have our analyst give any input that he cares to and then we'll take each item separately in deciding whether or not to include it as a votable item.
