We're not getting the interpretation.
Can you hear the interpretation now?
No interpretation is happening. We have a technical issue. I'm looking to our technical people.
I am going to read the instructions in both languages while waiting for them to sort out the interpretation problem.
I would like to remind the honourable members that if they wish to speak in English, they should choose the English channel, and if they wish to speak in French, they should choose the French channel. If you plan to speak in both languages, you should switch back and forth between the interpretation channels as required .
Each time you switch languages, please make sure that you switch back and forth. It's not an easy thing to do. I'd like to say that it becomes a habit, but it's still a struggle to go through.
Furthermore, to facilitate the interpreters' work, I would ask members to address their remarks to the chair, and to speak slowly and clearly at all times.
Yesterday we had some people who were trying to get as much as they could in. I know that some of us have a habit of speaking quickly. Just keep it down out of consideration not only for our members but also for our interpreters.
We also strongly recommend that those who will be speaking wear a headset. Once again, it's very important not only for your online colleagues, but also for the interpreters, to make it easier for them to understand what is being said. The clearer the comments, the better they can perform their task.
Before beginning, I will check to see whether the technical problem with interpretation has been settled. Apparently not.
We're going to suspend for a couple of minutes until we can resolve the interpretation problem.
It should be working again within a few minutes.
Stand by and we'll start in a couple of minutes.
