Mr. Speaker, I want to reassure public servants that we are working hard to fix the problems with the Phoenix pay system. We have been working on it for quite some time, in order to provide the necessary human and financial resources. I can reassure my hon. colleague that we are working with our partners in public sector labour unions in this country.
What we will not do, as the Conservatives did, is lay off the very people we need to fix the pay problems we inherited from the Conservatives.
