Mr. Speaker, my question is for the President of the Treasury Board.
He will recall that the government's program review, which took place in the mid-1990s, meant significant job cuts. Approximately 55,000 public service jobs were either cut or transferred to agencies. Recently the government announced that there would now be an expenditure review. This risks undermining the morale of the public service if not clarified.
Will this expenditure review be another unwanted job cutting exercise in the public service?
