Mr. Speaker, in the first place, the consultant study that he spoke about was commissioned and started by the previous government.
Second, the commission which my hon. friend is complaining about is one that has to be set up after each election, according to a law passed by Parliament. The government cannot ignore a decision of Parliament to set up such a commission after each election.
My hon. friend asked for the cost of this. This is a detailed technical question which he probably should have put on the Order Paper. In order to respond to him in a full and courteous way, I will take his question as notice and get him the information as soon as possible. In future I suggest that he check on the requirements of the law before asking that type of questionable question.
