Mr. Speaker, I gave no such instructions to any members of the committee, but if the hon. member opposite thinks that members of the committee can be instructed, then why does the Leader of the Opposition not ask the chairman of the committee to stop stalling? Why does he not ask him to call all the members who want to testify in front of the committee right now?
In the House of Commons on March 23rd, 2004. See this statement in context.
