Smith: "We will throw the book at those that have undermined Parliament in this respect." 

"Somebody has misled Parliament. Somebody has not taken us seriously. And somebody will pay the price." 

"This is perjury. This is deliberate misleading... and I think somebody must go to jail, quite frankly."
