Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates.
We're very pleased today to be here in regard to the main estimates for the Department of Public Works and Government Services. We'll also be looking at the report on plans and priorities at Shared Services Canada.
We're very pleased to have with us today the Honourable Diane Finley, the Minister for Public Works and Government Services. You're always welcome here, Minister Finley, and we thank you for being here with us today. I see we have you here with us for the first hour. It's only a couple of billion dollars, so it shouldn't take us more than an hour or so to do our due diligence and examine it.
We'll begin without delay then and ask you for opening remarks, and then we'll go to questions.

Thank you, Minister Finley, and I'm sure the questioners look forward to questioning you equally.
Beginning for the official opposition, Mr. Mathieu Ravignat.

Thank you, Mr. Ravignat. That concludes your time.
Next, for the Conservatives, we'll hear from Mr. Brad Butt, for five minutes, please.

I'm afraid I have to stop you there, Minister. Thank you very much.
Thank you, Mr. Brahmi.
We'll return to the Conservatives and Mr. Dan Albas, please, for five minutes.

Unfortunately, Mr. Albas, your time has expired. It went very quickly.

We will go to the second vice-chair of the committee, Mr. Gerry Byrne, for the Liberal Party.

I'm afraid, Mr. Byrne, Minister, I'll have to interrupt. You're well over time.
Next, for the Conservatives is Ms. Wai Young, for five minutes, please.

Thank you, Minister, I hate to interrupt you. Ms. Young, your time is concluded. Thank you.
That concludes our first round of questioning, but we still have the minister with us, I believe, for another 10 minutes. That would leave time for one round for the NDP and one round for the Conservatives, if that's agreeable to committee members.
Some hon. members: Agreed.
The Chair: Okay, the next turn then is for Mr. Ravignat from the NDP.

Mr. Ravignat, I'm afraid I'm going to have to interrupt you. That would be a comment more than a question. We're well over time.
In all fairness, Mr. Guy Lauzon has been waiting patiently for his five minutes. This will be the last round.

Thank you, Mr. Lauzon.
Thank you, Minister.
On that cheery note, we will conclude the one hour we had set aside for the minister to be with us today.
I'll suspend the meeting briefly while the minister leaves us, and we will resume with the next witnesses.

Ladies and gentlemen, we will reconvene our meeting. We are examining the main estimates. A new group of witnesses has joined us at the table.
Committee members, we're going to go just until 12:45, because we want to deal with the votes so that we can report the main estimates to the House of Commons, and we also want to very briefly discuss future business for upcoming meetings.
I notice that a few members are out of the room, but I believe, in the interest of time, we should get started.
May I ask who will be making the presentation for Shared Services Canada?
Ms. Forand.

NDP (MB)
Okay, then we will leave the minister's remarks on the subject to stand as your presentation.
We'll go right into questioning then with Mathieu Ravignat for the official opposition.

Your time is up, Mr. Ravignat. Thank you very much.
Mr. Greg Kerr from the Conservatives, you have five minutes, please.
