The Chair NDP David Christopherson

Thank you.

We have five minutes.

Before I go to you, Mr. Saxton, that motion has now eliminated the public hearing on Tuesday. You have the schedule in front of you. We have the time now. Is it the pleasure of the committee to make a determination on what date that is moved to so when the clerk contacts all these people it is with one message: that the meeting on Tuesday is cancelled and it is rescheduled for such-and-such a date? Are we able to do that today or not, colleagues?

Mr. Chair, this is not a planning session, apparently.

I would suggest that we should not set a date now, in that I think we all recognize that there will be more than one hearing on the F-35. It could extend for a while, so let's just see how that evolves so we are then able to reschedule. If we put a time in now, we might want that for additional hearings on the F-35, so it should be delayed until the committee sees that we have come to a conclusion on that study and then we can move forward with our other issues of business then.

Okay, thank you.

Mr. Saxton.

Conservative

Andrew Saxton Conservative North Vancouver, BC

Thank you, Mr. Chair.

I agree with my colleague Mr. Kramp. We should hold off on that decision until we know exactly what dates are available.

With that, Mr. Chair, I'd like to move that we adjourn the meeting today.

I have a motion that's in order.

Do you have a point of order?

I have a motion I'd like to move.

NDP

The Chair NDP David Christopherson

I'm sorry. If this fails and we continue, I will give you the floor, but right now we have a proper motion in front of us that I have to put to the committee, which is always in order when someone has the floor. It's a motion to adjourn the meeting. That motion is in order. It's not debatable.

You have the right to a recorded vote. There will be a formal recorded vote on this motion to adjourn.

Madam Clerk.

(Motion agreed to: yeas 7; nays 4)

The Chair NDP David Christopherson

Thank you, colleagues.

By a vote of seven to four, we have agreed to adjourn the meeting two minutes before the scheduled adjournment.

Thank you, all.

This meeting does indeed stand adjourned.
