Minister James Moore to defend Heritage Estimates

The Minister of Canadian Heritage, James Moore, who is presiding over a double decimation of the budget of Library and Archives Canada, is scheduled to appear before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage at noon, Tuesday, May 29, 2012 at Room 237-C of the Centre Block of Parliament 131 Queen Street, Room: 7-52 on Main Estimates 2012-2013. He will be accompanied by Daniel Jean, Deputy Minister of the department. No witness from LAC is indicated.

A televised proceeding online was previously indicated but that no longer appears on the notice. The hearing is scheduled for 60 minutes.

These estimates do not account for cuts announced in the 2012 budget. Will committee members be allowed to ask questions about those?
