Dear colleagues, before we begin our proceedings, I would like to remind you about the special measures in place today.
To that end, pursuant to order made on Tuesday, May 26, the application of Standing Order 17 will be suspended for the current sittings to allow members to practise physical distancing.
Members desiring to speak and address the Chair may do so from any seat in the House.
I will ask that all members tabling a document or moving a motion sign the document and bring it to the table themselves.
I wish to inform the House that pursuant to order made on Tuesday, May 26, I sent a notice calling the House to meet this day. On Monday, June 8, I sent each member a message explaining the reasons for this recall. I now lay on the table the notice calling the House to meet.
Pursuant to an order made on May 26, the House will now proceed to the introduction of government bills.
