Colleagues, thank you very much for your patience. It's reciprocated, as usual.
We just have a few business items, and I'd like to go over them really quickly. They're in the realm of just cleaning things up before we go to reports.
The one thing we did not have an opportunity to vote on, of course, last week was the 19th report of the subcommittee, which met on March 9. It essentially dealt with who we were going to have on the witness list.
It seemed to be....
Mr. Saxton.

I wanted to go through three items that have to deal with that, but I'm happy to hear you say that you don't object. So can I then very quickly dispense with this and say that because the 19th report really reflected people who we would have after we dealt with the current witnesses, we just accept it and go on?

Well, all of these were going to come here on the 24th. That's today. So we're going to have to make one quick change, that it wouldn't be the 24th. I'm going to take the government House leader at his word—

So I'd like to have this as just an open date.

Yes, TBD, or just take out the words. Agreed?
Some hon. members: Agreed.
The Chair: Thank you.

Are you asking me, Mr. Saxton, to go to the rest of the agenda, which has to do with correspondence, or are you...?

What I'm dealing with is one at a time. I want to deal with this report, Mr. Saxton. If you want to go ahead and delay things, that's okay.

Mr. Chairman, the first item on our agenda is committee business. It is important to get updates so that we know where we stand at the present time.
I believe this is what you have been trying to do for a while now. If members opposite would just let you speak, we would be able to move forward and get some more information—

Mr. D'Amours, it was my intention to discuss the subjects that have almost been agreed on already. The Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs has already made a decision. So I would simply ask this committee if it approves the work done by our colleagues, yes or no. Mr. Saxton said he agreed. So I accepted his answer. However, now Mr. Saxton seems to have other—

Let me deal with the part that doesn't deal with him, and then we can go on.
This is contingent on the study continuing. In the event that we do continue, your committee has said, “Let's carry on.”

Now that we have Mr. Christopherson here, and there appears to be a desire on the part of Mr. Saxton to switch the agenda so we can deal with Mr. Christopherson's motion before the committee last March 10, before we accept what he has already said, he does not object to....
Mr. Christopherson, I'm going on a little bit to let you catch your breath.
I'm going to link the two, but I'm not forgetting that you have said you have no objection to the committee's report.
