Before I call the Manager of Opposition Business, I do just want to say one more thing. I thank the House for its confidence in passing that resolution. It is a very, very important matter. Generally, there has obviously been a lot going on today, without going to the politics of it. Both the Leader of the House and the Manager of Opposition Business have been very busy. That's the nature of their jobs. I want to thank both of them for working with me through this. We were determined that it happen today. The Manager of Opposition Business is here. I personally want to thank him and his staff for their work through this when it would have been very easy for other political priorities to get in the road. Having said that, the Manager of Opposition Business now has a matter of privilege. Let's go back to where we were.
