Okay. I appreciate that very much.
I'm going to have to cut it there, unfortunately.
Colleagues, we do have a motion to deal with as well, so our second panel will be shorted because of votes.
On behalf of the entire committee, I want to thank all of you for coming in this afternoon for an excellent policy discussion. If you have anything further, please submit it to the clerk and we'll ensure that members get it.
We'll switch over to the second panel.
Colleagues, could I ask you to stay in your seats for one minute? You do have a motion in front of you, dealing with the pre-budget report. We are hoping to have this adopted.
There is only one change.
It is “2014” in the French version.
It's “2014”; it's not supposed to be “2041”.
Merci, monsieur Caron, for your good eyes.
That would be a very long pre-budget consultation. I think we want to conclude it before then.
Do I have a mover for this motion?
Mr. Keddy.
(Motion agreed to)
The Chair: Thank you.
Colleagues, we will suspend for two to five minutes and we will come back for the second panel.

My apologies. We have bells ringing for a vote in 30 minutes.
We are required to suspend and we will return to continue your testimony. We apologize for the interruption.

We're calling the meeting back into session.
Unfortunately, the bells are ringing again, so colleagues, I am....
To our witnesses particularly, our apologies. We were really looking forward to your testimony. Hopefully we can hear you in the near future. Again, our apologies.
Colleagues, we are required to head back to the House.
I think it's pointless for us to come back today, so I'd ask for a motion to adjourn.
We're adjourned.

Okay, we are going to adjourn—or suspend, rather—because we have to go to vote. The chairman's inclination.... Are you available to come back? We probably won't get back here till 4:30. Are the two of you available to come back at 4:30?

Okay. I'm going to unilaterally say that the minister will have to come another day.
This meeting is suspended.

That technically is not a point of order, but it's a helpful point of clarification that is not in the Standing Orders.
Minister, I want to thank you for being with us here today. I want to thank your officials. I understand that your officials will be back for the clause-by-clause on March 15.
We will see you then.
At this time, colleagues, I will suspend for a couple of minutes and we'll bring our guests forward for the next panel.

The majority are in favour of continuing the meeting.
We will suspend for 10 minutes, however, for a personal break for everyone and for those who wish to recharge their cups.

We'll call the committee back.
I just want to make sure that everybody understands that the chair can tell time, but there were some requests that we suspend a little longer than the 10 minutes for some discussions. I would hope those discussions have been fruitful and maybe we can move along.
A name that I still have on the list is Mr. Harris, because he hadn't completed.

That's the motion that was put forth as soon as we opened our hearing this morning.
It effectively says that the job we undertook on Tuesday morning in a two-hour meeting, with a scheduled two-hour meeting today and other scheduled meetings next week, on Tuesday and Thursday, in a session of Parliament that just began a couple of weeks ago.... It says that this bill, which is composed of nine pieces of legislation, shall only be considered today and that it's going back to the House tomorrow in whatever form it is at 11:59 p.m. tonight. Debate on each clause is limited to a maximum of five minutes per party, per clause, before a vote is held.
That's the situation we find ourselves in, and that's the situation we oppose, because clause-by-clause consideration can't reasonably be considered to be completed effectively and given justice in that time.
Mr. Chair, I don't know if there's a will in the committee here, but we've been considering this now, and question period is coming up in a while. Is it reasonable to suggest that we suspend now and come back at 3:30 to allow people to go to question period and prepare for question period?

Mr. Chairman, I understand we have one more speaker on the list. Could we at least hear from that speaker before we have any motion to suspend?

We do have some names on the list.
The other part is that it is the will of the committee when you wish to suspend. There is food being brought in at one o'clock.

I'm happy to continue. I was responding to what I thought might have been a suggestion.
Do you have someone else on the list?
