Colleagues, before I begin our proceedings, I would like to remind members of the special measures in place today.
The application of Standing Order 17 will be suspended for the current sitting. Members desiring to speak and address the Chair may do so from any seat in the House.
I will ask that all members tabling documents or moving a motion sign the document and bring it to the table themselves.
I wish to inform the House that pursuant to an order made on April 20, I sent a notice of meeting calling the House to meet this day. On Monday, May 11, I sent each member a message explaining the reasons for this recall. I now lay this notice on the table.
Pursuant to an order made on Monday, April 20, the House will now proceed to the introduction of a government bill.
