Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs

Transcripts & Minutes

A committee’s proceedings are the printed edited transcripts, available in both English and French, of the testimony received by the committee. While separate issues are often prepared for each meeting of a committee, at times a number of meetings may be contained in one issue. Also, a single issue will sometimes deal with more than one order of reference.
