Instructions to the Committee

.

A Parliamentary dodge for empowering a Committee of the House to do what a Committee would not otherwise be empowered to do.

An “Instruction” must be supplementary and auxiliary to the Bill under consideration.

It must fall within the general scope and framework of the Bill in question.

It must not form the substance of a distinct measure.
