But it could well be the case—and this is something, obviously, that the recipients or object of this motion have to have in mind—that if the House were to adopt this and the minister were to act in violation of it, the House might be an unhappy House about that. That brings on implications for the minister vis-à-vis the House to whom he's accountable. You might not call that legal, but it's part of our legal system of government. In a sense, there's that possibility.
