On the same point, Mr. Chair, it's highly irregular.... I understand Mr. Volpe's point, but certainly in the first round of seven minutes he can ask that particular question. Maybe we could have Mr. Uppal present his bill and then get on with it and get as far as we can. He can ask any question he wants in relation to the witness at that stage.
Even though it might have been last minute for amendments—I'm sorry, Ms. Crombie, just because I took the time—and I understand that, but we often have amendments from the floor as well. In fact, in every bill we've ever covered in this committee we've had amendments from the floor. So it certainly might be a little bit late, and we understand that. There was all-party support for this. Possibly just because of the fast timeline, it is a little bit under the gun, but if you don't want to recommend the amendments at this stage, then we can do what we can and go on from there.
But I would suggest that we start and let Mr. Uppal carry on with business.
