Procedure and House Affairs committee I appreciate this. I feel as though we're just getting information we received previously. I wish there were more specifics and more information. Will the panel meet on a consistent basis or only on the occasion of an incident?

Procedure and House Affairs committee Minister, if you don't mind, I'll move on. I don't really feel we're getting a direct answer from you in regard to the action you're willing to take.
