I think it's a very good idea, but I find every proposal for reforming committees, with some exceptions, in the Canadian House of Commons foundering on the reefs and rocks of partisanship. The one exception I can think of was the decision of the public accounts committee to go against the government and recommend the implementation of the accounting officer approach to responsibility in the accounts. That one fascinated me. It was one of my pet peeves.
