    Notes

    The Crisis Committee has existed for a nearly a year but its operation has been hindered by problems. The latest Speaker has attempted to revive the Crisis Committee by returning to basics, however, the only reform has seen a government member elected as a chair for the Crisis Committee. The Crisis Committee is a failed experiment that few people faithfully support, if the Crisis Committee was fully supported, serious reform would have happened since its conception.

    I urge all members to vote Nay and actually give the CC every chance

    Nay. I don't see why the volume of output of the CC is a concern. Of course, I'd like to see an improvement in quality, but I think this Amendment should wait for the next Parliament.

    Aye, in the week this amendment was being discussed the Crisis Committee tabled no proposed reforms to change the Crisis Committee. If this amendment did not encourage Crisis Committee members to act, the Crisis Committee should be closed.

    Aye, i never supported it anyway.

    At the same time i call on people to abstain, there's no harm in leaving others to it.
