Good morning. Welcome to the 162nd meeting of the standing committee. Although it says we're in camera, we won't be for a few minutes because we have to do just one thing first.
I'll read the notes from the clerk. They say, “The committee would like to thank the best clerk in the history of the House of Commons”—
Some hon. members: Oh, oh!
The Chair:—“and the best researchers.”
Some hon. members: Hear, hear!
The Chair: Those are good notes. Thank you.
Actually, what I'd like to do is this. We have a cake here to present which says on it, “Happy Retirement from Filibustering to the Great Parliamentarian from Hamilton Centre.”
Some hon. members: Hear, hear!
The Chair: Yes, you can take pictures.
I'll take requests to speak.

So it goes without saying—and I'll get a speaking list here—that obviously you're a very passionate member. I think you've been very principled. Each of us, in theory, should have one-tenth of the influence on this committee, but I think that's not true. I think you have more than your one-tenth of influence on this committee. There's making a point and there's making a point, and you can certainly make a point very passionately, and although members might often disagree, we think the points you're making are principled—I do, anyway. You believe in them and you're a great asset to this Parliament, and I know there are some people who will add to my comments.
Mr. Bittle.

Thank you, Scott.
Before I go to Ruby, I also appreciate the passion with which you continue to make the point that the security of Parliament shouldn't be in the hands of the government. It's a very substantial point. Thank you for that.
Now we'll go to Ruby.

No, and in fact maybe you should speak to your House leader, if we can get consent to do that.

Every committee member, obviously, has given commendations, which, in itself, is a testimony because everyone had great commendations.
I would give you the opportunity to respond, Mr. Christopherson. Do you have any last words for Parliament? But it's not a filibuster.

Does the committee want to do any work on the reason we're here, or do you want to go to the vote?
Scott Reid: Do we have to go to the vote if we adjourn, or can we have some cake?
Mr. David de Burgh Graham: We should suspend.
The Chair: You want to suspend?
Mr. Scott Reid: Suspending is a better idea. You're right.
Mr. David de Burgh Graham: We can suspend for awhile.
The Chair: Okay, we'll suspend, and then we'll come back in camera and hold our discussion. We'll have cake now.
Is that okay? Anything else? Good.
The meeting is suspended.

Welcome back to the 162nd meeting. For the first time, Kevin's been allowed in the room by David Christopherson without David blasting him.
Some hon. members: Oh, oh!
The Chair: Mr. Lamoureux, every member of the committee has said nice things about David, so we invite you to add to the record before we go to vote.

Good morning.
Welcome to the 160th meeting of the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs. This meeting is being held in public at the moment. The first order of business today is consideration of regulations respecting the non-attendance of members by reason of maternity or care for a newborn or newly adopted child.
We're pleased to be joined by Philippe Dufresne, the House law clerk and parliamentary counsel, and Robyn Daigle, director, members' HR services. Thank you both for being here.
Members will recall that our 48th report recommended that the Parliament of Canada Act be amended to provide members of Parliament with access to some form of pregnancy and parental leave. The legislation was subsequently amended to empower the House of Commons to make regulations. As you're aware, the Board of Internal Economy considered the matter last week and recommended that PROC consider a set of draft regulations that it unanimously endorsed.
I would note for the members that the draft regulations distributed in the morning have some slight differences from what we received from the board last week, and it's my understanding that the law clerk will explain the reasons for the changes.
With that I'll turn it over to you, Mr. Dufresne, for your opening remarks.

Thank you very much. That adds some great clarity.
I have two things for the committee. One, I want to deal with just the recommendation first and come to a conclusion as to whatever we're going to do with this. Two, I'm going to do open rounds so anyone can ask questions, because there may be different interests here.
Madam Moore.
