The Supervisory Committee may from time to time appoint advisory committees, technical committees, and other committees to advise it on such matters as it may refer to them.


Every such committee may, in addition and on its own initiative, furnish to the Supervisory Committee reports on any matter in respect of which the members of the committee have special knowledge or experience.


Any person may be appointed to be a member of any such committee, notwithstanding that he is not a member of the Supervisory Committee.


Every such committee shall in all matters be subject to the control of the Supervisory Committee, and shall carry out all directions, general or special, of the Supervisory Committee in relation to the Supervisory Committee or its affairs.


Subject to the provisions of this Act, every committee appointed under this section may regulate its procedure in such manner as it thinks fit.
