Madam Speaker, my colleague said that what matters is that everyone co-operates. He is right; that is very important.

He said it is not a parliamentary committee, but a committee formed in another manner, as he said. Would he not agree that it is important that the members who sit on this committee not have the privilege to disclose sensitive information in the House without any consequences? Does he not think it is important to take this privilege away from the committee members, with respect to top secret government matters?

Madame la Présidente, mon collègue dit qu'il est important que tout le monde coopère. Il a raison, c'est très important.

Il dit qu'il ne s'agit pas d'un comité parlementaire, mais d'un comité constitué autrement, comme il le dit. Cependant, ne trouve-t-il pas important qu'un député qui siège à ce comité n'ait pas le privilège de divulguer des informations privilégiées à la Chambre sans conséquence? Ne trouve-t-il pas important de retirer aux membres du comité ce privilège quant aux questions extrêmement secrètes du gouvernement?
