Mr. Speaker, the parliament buildings are the centre of our history, our democracy and our identity. That is why the government has developed and approved a long term vision plan for the parliamentary precinct. We are now proceeding with its implementation.
Earlier this week, the Minister of Public Works and Government Services announced the creation of an advisory committee to provide oversight and advice on the renovations. I am also pleased to announce that the hon. John Fraser, former speaker of the House of Commons, has accepted to chair this committee.
