Pursuant to an order made on Tuesday, May 26, it is my duty to interrupt the proceedings. The committee will now study Government Business No. 10.
Before we begin the debate, I would like to remind hon. members of how this next part of the debate will unfold.
Our proceedings for the next two hours and 20 minutes will be conducted pursuant to the terms of Standing Order 53.1, which is for take-note debates. Each member speaking will be allotted 10 minutes for debate, followed by 10 minutes for questions and comments.
Members participating via video conference who wish to ask a question or make a comment at the end of the speech may so indicate to the Chair by using the “raise hand” feature on the video conference platform.
However, members participating in the chamber may rise as they normally would.
The debate will end, as I mentioned earlier, after two hours and 20 minutes or when no member rises to speak.
We will now begin the take-note debate.
The Leader of the Government in the House of Commons has moved that the House take note of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and measures taken by the government to respond to it.
On a point of order, the hon. opposition House leader.
