I call the meeting officially to order.
Welcome to meeting number 23 of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance. Pursuant to the order of reference of January 27, 2021, the committee is meeting to study Bill C-224, an act to amend an act to authorize the making of certain fiscal payments to provinces, and to authorize the entry into tax collection agreements with provinces. We will be meeting on Bill C-208 in this committee meeting as well. Larry Maguire will present his bill.
Today's meeting is taking place in a hybrid format, which we've all become used to, pursuant to the House order of January 25, 2021. Therefore, members are attending in person in the room and remotely using the Zoom application. The proceedings will be made available via the House of Commons website.
We will not go through the rest of the formalities.
We will start with Mr. Gabriel Ste-Marie's bill, Bill C-224. We will go through clause-by-clause consideration. I hope people have the bill before them. It's not like we're in Parliament, where we can hand around fairly short bills.
Pursuant to Standing Order 75(1), consideration of the preamble will be postponed.
(On clause 1)
The Chair: I will call for the vote on clause 1, which has four proposed subsections.
I expect you want a recorded division on this, Mr. Ste-Marie.
