Procedure and House Affairs (March 17, 2011)

At the conclusion of two days of hearings, Opposition MPs tried to pass a motion to declare the Conservative government in contempt of Parliament. The motion called for the committee to produce a two-page draft report specifying that the government’s failure to provide all requested documents on its crime bills and corporate tax cuts constitutes contempt.

The committee adjourned before the motion to produce a two-page draft contempt report could be voted on.
