International Grand Committee on Disinformation and 'Fake News'

Good morning. I welcome all our foreign parliamentarians and witnesses to the International Grand Committee on Disinformation and 'Fake News'. I have received apologies from our delegation from Argentina. Unfortunately, our UK colleagues, Damian Collins, Ian Lucas and Jo Stevens, are unable to attend because of the UK elections. Our Canadian colleague, Bob Zimmer, is unable to be here either due to the Canadian elections. I am sure they will stay tuned in here throughout the day and we wish them well. Our parliamentary representatives will each give their name and state the country they are representing. We will go briefly through the group. We might start with Australia.
