‘Parliament’s fundamental purpose’


It will obviously be awhile now before the Procedure and House Affairs committee reconvenes, but Liberal House leader Marc Garneau has tabled the following motion there.

“That the Committee begin a study into what reasonable limits should be placed on the consideration of Omnibus legislation in recognition of Parliament’s fundamental purpose to provide appropriate oversight of the Government; and that the committee report its findings, including specific recommendations for legislative measures or changes to the Standing Orders, to the House no later than Dec.10, 2012.”
