Mr. Speaker, I commend the leadership shown by my colleague, the member for Abitibi—Témiscamingue, in the way she forces us to look at the issue of the House's duty to accommodate for families. I think everyone here really appreciates her leadership.

Coming back to something she said about committees, the right to introduce legislation at committee is a very interesting idea. I like it, and we will discuss it at the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs.

There is something else I would like to talk about regarding the same topic at committee. When a committee publishes a report, there is no way to ensure follow-up. For instance, at the Standing Joint Committee on the Library of Parliament during the last Parliament, a motion was moved and a study was done to ensure that all sessional papers that come from questions on the Order Paper are published for the general public and not just Parliament. There is no way to follow up to ensure that that is being done.

Would my colleague like to comment on that?

Monsieur le Président, je salue le leadership de ma voisine, la députée d'Abitibi—Témiscamingue, sur la façon dont elle nous force à affronter la question du devoir d'accommodation de la Chambre pour les familles. Je pense que son leadership est très apprécié par tout le monde ici.

Pour revenir à un commentaire fait sur les comités, je trouve l'idée d'avoir le droit de proposer un projet de loi en comité extrêmement intéressante. J'aime cela, et nous allons en discuter au Comité permanent de la procédure et des affaires de la Chambre.

Par ailleurs, il y a une autre chose que je veux aborder concernant le même sujet aux comités. En effet, quand une étude sort du comité, il n'y a aucune façon d'en assurer le suivi. Par exemple, au dernier Parlement, au Comité mixte permanent de la Bibliothèque du Parlement, on a fait une motion et une étude pour s'assurer que tous les documents parlementaires ou sessional papers, qui proviennent des questions au Feuilleton, soient publiés pour le grand public, et non seulement au Parlement. Il n'y a pas moyen de faire un suivi pour s'assurer que cela se fait.

Ma collègue aurait-elle des commentaires à faire à ce sujet?
