Danish term or phrase:at melde hus forbi
This seems to be a very common phrase, but I am having some difficulty determining its meaning. It appears in the following passage:
Senest har en FN-komité ladet høre fra sig, og også i dette tilfælde har integrationsminister Bertel Haarder meldt hus forbi under henvisning til, at det hjemlige Institut for Menneskerettigheder bekræfter ministerens opfattelse.
