MPs support opening House Board of Internal Economy, but question whether it belongs in budget bill

Conservative Whip Gord Brown, left, and Fisheries and Oceans Minister Dominic LeBlanc are currently spokespeople for the Commons Board of Internal Economy, which meets entirely in camera. The Liberal government is seeking to open up meetings to the public, but have proposed the changes as part of its massive budget implementation package. The Hill Times photographs by Jake Wright
