Before we comment on that, I have no problem if the committee agrees to that. That's fine with me. As I understand it, this morning we're going to be briefed by the staff, by the department, on this topic. That may take an hour. That may take a little more than an hour. As I also understand it, there may be a couple of witnesses in the general audience who, if there's time permitting, could speak to the committee as well. If not, we'll go the full two hours with the staff. We'll see how it goes.
On this coming Thursday the chair has planned to proceed with other witnesses. There's a list circulating--and I think there are different lists, of which I've only seen one--and we would proceed with those witnesses, as many as we could, on the Thursday. And the list goes on for a second page. In the chairman's opinion, it's most unlikely that if we want to hear all those witnesses, we will be able to deal with them all on Thursday; we may have to have another day. That's a topic for the committee. However, the original plan was that we would strictly have this coming Thursday for two hours with those witnesses and then deal with the report on the first Tuesday back from the break. Obviously the wind is changing, and I'm in the hands of the committee, but you're going to have to tell me what you want to do.
The first question is, do you want two days for other witnesses or do you just want one day for other witnesses? Secondly, do you want to interrupt this study to finish the foreign workers report? Will we finish this study first or would we interrupt it to proceed with the foreign workers study?
There you have it. I need guidance from the committee as to where you want the clerk and me to go.
