Mr. Speaker, I find this answer very weak since the fact that the Library of Parliament is accountable to this House was not even mentioned.
We have a situation where the Library of Parliament serving members is totally unaccountable to the members of the House. We have no access to the library. We cannot ask questions of anyone speaking on behalf of the library in the House and the committee that is supposed to be overseeing it has not even been struck.
I would implore the chief government whip to make sure that the committee is struck as rapidly as possible because there is throughout this whole issue a sense of lack of respect for the members of the House by the library.
We have to get to the bottom of it. Why would they not have fixed the problem? Twice they requested proposals and twice they cancelled. Twice they were wrong.
All this mess, if I can call it that, has to be investigated by the committee which has not been struck. At the very least, the government should get on with striking the committee so that it can do its work.
