Can anyone think of a reason why Select Committee Chairmen shouldn't be barred from having outside interests?

I ask the question simply because I argued yesterday morning that they should be barred from having such interests - at least, if they clash with their role as Chairmen - and have yet to hear a good reason why they shouldn't be so banned.

Can anyone offer one?
