I call the meeting to order.
Welcome to meeting number 19 of the Board of Internal Economy of the 43rd Parliament.
This morning, we will begin with item 1, the minutes of the previous meeting.
Are there any questions or comments on that? Seeing none, we'll move on to the second item.
We will continue with item 2, business arising from the previous meeting.
Are there any comments?
Mr. Richards, go ahead.

That's a request.
Do I have unanimous consent on that?
Mrs. DeBellefeuille, do you have a comment on that?

Do we have unanimous consent?
I'm getting signals that we do. That's great.
Thank you.

I believe that's already open and ready to go in camera. I believe we have unanimous consent to go along with that.

If it's okay with the members, maybe we can approach it once we go in camera. We'll have the House of Commons lawyer, Mr. Dufresne, comment on that and then we can make a decision.
Is that fair?

Lib. (ON)
Okay. Let's go with that, then. That gives everyone some time to reflect until we get there. There are no decisions made on the spot, and we'll make sure it's the right decision to make.
Mr. Julian will be followed by Mrs. DeBellefeuille.

That's great.
If there are no further comments on item 2, we will continue with item 3.
There was a walk-around, an extension of COVID measures. They were extended to September 30.
Is everyone in accordance with the extension and what we have now, to be on the safe side?
Good. We'll move on to item number four.
Item 4 is the 31st annual session of the Organization for Security and Co‑operation in Europe (OSCE) Parliamentary Assembly, to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, in July 2023.
The presenter is Hedy Fry, and I'll let her take it from here.
Ms. Fry, go ahead.

You are signalling that it's clear and that you're all in agreement.
We have agreement on that recommendation. Let's continue with item 6.

The floor is yours.

No. Under normal circumstances, and even under extenuating circumstances, everything works fairly well. As you know, in the last two weeks of the House we were sitting until late. I have to credit the clerks of the House and the table officers on a lot of this work. They start working on it and they go around the clock—I don't think they sleep at night—so that we can get it. Unfortunately, we weren't giving them any time to sleep, so they weren't able to come up with a lot of it, and I didn't have what I thought was something that was to the quality that we've been accustomed to.
It was my call, but overall I think we do have sufficient staffing in the administration and the clerks. Just don't keep us going until midnight, or until one or two in the morning, every day for weeks on end and we'll be fine.
