Wednesday: Today in Politics
January 29, 2014
Should committee chairs be elected by the entire House of Commons? Debate resumes on the motion from Conservative MP Brad Trost to encourage further study by the procedure committee.
Trost’s motion would see all MPs vote using a preferential ballot, before the committees are assigned members. Twenty MPs from the Conservative, NDP, Liberal, and Green caucuses have all seconded the plan.
MPs vote on two private member’s bills (C-475 and C-513) and a motion on electronic petitions.
The parties resume their weekly caucus meetings on Parliament Hill.
