I call the meeting to order.
Pursuant to Standing Order 81(5), the committee will deal with supplementary estimates (B) 2017-18, vote 1b under Canada Revenue Agency.
Appearing today is the Minister of National Revenue, the Honourable Diane Lebouthillier.
As well, from the Canada Revenue Agency, we have Mr. Hamilton, commissioner; Ms. Janique Caron, acting assistant commissioner; Mr. Ted Gallivan, assistant commissioner at the international, large business, and investigations branch; and Mr. Frank Vermaeten, assistant commissioner at the assessment, benefit, and service branch.
I know that both the minister and the commissioner have remarks. Before we get to that, we have a request for a supplementary project budget for our pre-budget consultations. This is normal in the pre-budget consultation process. It will end up being about the same amount of money as we have spent in previous years. The request is before you. It's for an additional $29,900. Do we have a mover for that?
It is moved by Mr. Fergus.
(Motion agreed to [See Minutes of Proceedings])
The Chair: As it states on the sheet, that is for the witnesses who have come forward.
I have just one other thing before I get to your point of order, Tom.
I want to recognize 43 students from École nationale d'administration publique, who are here with Mr. Rémy Trudel, a professor and former member of the Quebec National Assembly. They are here to see how things operate.
Thank you all.
There was a call for a point of order. The floor is yours, Mr. Kmiec.
