It has been brought to my attention that a clerical error has been found in the report to the House on Bill C-11, the public servants disclosure protection act.
In the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates, a subamendment to clause 24(1)(b) was not recorded correctly in the English version of the report. Regrettably, the report to the House and the reprint of the bill have included this error.
Clause 24(1)(b) should read as follows:
(b) the subject-matter of the disclosure is not sufficiently important or the disclosure is not made in good faith;
Therefore, I am directing that a corrigendum to the report be prepared to insert the correct words in the English version of clause 24(1)(b). In addition, the working copy of the bill will be corrected in its next edition after third reading.
