APPOINTMENT OF SUBCOMMITTEE

The Acting Chair (Mr Ted Arnott): It is our responsibility now to select a subcommittee of this committee, and I would invite the respective caucuses to put forward a name to represent them at the subcommittee.

Mr Monte Kwinter (York Centre): I move that a subcommittee on committee business be appointed to meet from time to time at the call of the Chair, or at the request of any member thereof, to consider and report to the committee on the business of the committee; that the presence of all members of the subcommittee is necessary to constitute a meeting; and that the subcommittee be composed of the following members:... as Chair; Mr Skarica; Mr Christopherson; and Mr Phillips; and that substitutions be permitted on the subcommittee.

The Acting Chair: Any discussion?

Mr David Christopherson (Hamilton West): I have a question. It's not a big deal, but in the past, every other one that I've been on, we've had the Chair of the standing committee chair the subcommittee and then there were three reps on top-

Mr Kwinter: It's confusing because it says, "The Chair as Chair." The Chair wasn't mentioned in this resolution, but the chair as the Chairman of the subcommittee, and then Mr Skarica and Mr Christopherson and Mr Phillips.

Mr Christopherson: OK. The way it was worded, it sounded like there were three and one was the Chair.

Mr Phillips: It says, "The Chair as Chair."

Mr Christopherson: OK, that's fine.

Mr Kwinter: "The Chair as Chair"-that's why the confusion.

The Acting Chair: Any other discussion on the motion?

We'll move now to a vote. All in favour of Mr Kwinter's motion? Those opposed? Carried.

Is there any other business that members wish to raise?

Mr Phillips: How about the pay of the Chair? I mean, do you get paid for the day?

The Acting Chair: Not today. I'll adjourn the meeting. Thank you very much.

The committee adjourned at 1011.
