Order. We are now in the public session of the Board of Internal Economy meeting. We will go to the next item, which is the minutes of the previous meeting. Are they approved?
Go ahead, Mr. Strahl.

Just briefly, I note there is a mention of pairing. We didn't wish to talk about pairing.
I should actually read from the minutes. I'm going by memory here.
I just want to make clear that it was an informal discussion. I certainly did not wish to indicate with my remarks that any changes to the pairing system should be made. I don't know if that's indicated in the minutes.
I want to clarify that I was not asking for this board or PROC, or anyone else, to study the issue of pairing now or in the future. That would be a discussion for the whips, perhaps.

With that presentation, then, can we say the minutes are approved?
Some hon. members: Agreed.
Hon. Geoff Regan: Thank you very much.
The next item is business arising from the previous meeting. Is there anything arising from the previous meeting?
Some hon. members: No.
Hon. Geoff Regan: Thank you.
Now we're at the seventh item on the agenda: the update from the members' working group on the LTVP.
We have quite a group here to present on that. Is it Ms. Sgro who will lead off?

Yes, Mr. Chair, I will. Thank you very much.
Today I'm joined by my colleague Kelly Block, as well as Peter Julian, who is also a representative on this working group.
For your background information, the working group met on June 4 and June 11 to review the proposed governance structure and initiate engagement on the Centre Block rehabilitation project. The House of Commons administration provided an overview of the long-term vision project, or LTVP, and background on consultations and approvals to date.
The working group discussed the governance structure and agreed on the mandate. The working group was formed as requested by the BOIE with a view to provide engagement with members on requirements and oversight on the Centre Block project and LTVP. The working group will report to the board to provide updates on the rehabilitation project and make recommendations as required. The working group will help guide and inform consultations and engagement with members and stakeholders.
For the development and implementation of the LTVP, guiding principles that we will work under were developed at various milestones. We reviewed those established principles and we propose an updated set of guiding principles that are appropriate for Parliament with regard to the Centre Block rehabilitation. We would seek BOIE's endorsement of the following principles.
Centre Block’s primary purpose is to accommodate the two Houses of Parliament. It is first and foremost a workplace for parliamentarians, and the design and operational requirements of the building must take those needs into consideration.

I don't have that in front of me. I trust what Ms. Sgro is saying is correct, but I would like to read it at the same time.

My understanding was that you had received a fair amount of information on this project already.

We have something. However, it doesn't include the list that you were starting to read. It sounded as though it would be a good list for us to have.
