This point has come up a number of times since I have been in the House. My predecessors in this chair have consistently ruled that the committees are masters of their own work.
I would point out with respect that members of the committee can bring this forth in the committee proper and the committee will decide what it wants to do with it. If a report is brought back to the House then I believe we could entertain the motions or objections such as those that are brought forth.
Unless and until I get direction from the House of Commons that the policies in this regard are to be changed, I would rule at this time that the committee is master of its own destiny and that if a report comes back to the House, at that time I will have a look at it.
