Government Whip Jay Hill says a manual that tells Conservative committee chairs to disrupt meetings when the debate threatens the party's agenda is nothing more than a defence against an opposition that is trying to assert undue power.

"There's nothing sinister at play here," Mr. Hill told CTV's Question Period yesterday.

"It's no big secret that this is a minority Parliament. We're outnumbered both in the chamber, dramatically outnumbered of course in the Senate by the Liberal majority over there, and outnumbered in every single standing committee."
