Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present, in both official languages, the following six reports of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts. I am pleased to be joined by my vice-chair today, the hon. member for Brossard—Saint-Lambert.
The 34th report entitled “Report 2, Customs Duties, from the 2017 Spring Reports of the Auditor General of Canada-Part 1”; the 35th report entitled “Report 5, Temporary Foreign Worker Program, of the Spring 2017 Reports of the Auditor General of Canada”; the 36th report entitled “Report 1, Management of Fraud Risk, of the Spring 2017 Reports of the Auditor General of Canada”; the 37th report entitled “Special Examination Report-Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation, of the Spring 2017 Reports of the Auditor General of Canada”; the 38th report entitled “Report 6, Civil Aviation Infrastructure in the North, of the Spring 2017 Report of the Auditor General of Canada”; and the 39th report entitled “Special Examination Report-Defence Construction Canada, of the spring 2017 Reports of the Auditor General of Canada”.
Pursuant to Standing Order 109, the committee requests the government table a comprehensive response to each of these six reports.
The Standing Committee on Public Accounts adopted these six reports yesterday, all unanimously. I want to thank the members and the substitutes of our committee for their great work. These reports represent over 140 pages, in each official language, that were translated, formatted, and published by a small group of employees of the House, who worked diligently in record time to meet today's deadline.
I want to thank all the employees of the translation bureau, parliamentary publications, our committee analysts and the clerk, and many other assistants who made this miracle happen.
As well, to all Canadians and to my constituents, and to all members here, I want to wish all a very merry Christmas from my family to theirs. We hope they all have a very safe holiday, and come back in the new year refreshed and ready to do the right thing for all Canadians.
