As I read it, the main sittings motion provides for the Committee to meet in the morning at 9.25 am and 2 o’clock when the House is sitting, but of course it provides for the Committee to sit on a Wednesday only. Members of the Committee know—do we not?—that the 2012 Bill Committee met four times a week. It met not once, not twice, not three times, but four times a week, such was the importance and such was the degree of scrutiny that that Committee gave.
