I do have a point of order, Mr. Chair.
Just to clarify, we're not talking about a House of Commons interruption of committee proceedings that prevented the ministers from finishing their testimony. They were told in writing that they would be here until two o'clock. It's 1:25. There are 35 minutes left in the period that was allocated for the ministers to appear.
I appreciate that they might want to get out the back door as quickly as possible rather than answer those questions, but let's not create a phony pretense based on false logistics. The House of Commons, for the millions of fans who are watching back home, is 90 seconds down the hallway. They could be back here by now. They could have taken a round of questioning by now.
