The committees are an emanation of the House. The committees operate by the same rules as the House of
Commons. They do not set separate rules. They may set with unanimous consent, as can the House, different rules, practices and procedures, but only with unanimous consent.
I suggest that what is happening is going to cause grievous difficulty not only in the committee but in the House. All I am asking is that there be some attempt made to ensure that the practices that have been followed, both in the House of Commons with regard to quorum and in the past in committee with regard to quorum, be followed during this Parliament. At the moment I have reason to believe that is not the case.
