PARLIAMENTARY COMMITTEE ON SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

NDP

Mr. Orlikow

New Democratic Party

Is the government giving consideration to the establishment of a Parliamentary Committee on Scientific Research (like the Committee on Defence) which could hear representations from government departments involved in research, the National Research Council, the Universities, and organizations such as the Canadian Association of Physicists, the Chemical Institute of Canada, Engineering Institute of Canada, the Canadian Medical Association, the Canadian Mathematical Congress, the Canadian Federation of Biological Societies, and the Royal Society of Canada, as to what program of scientific research is required in Canada in order to develop a program adequate to meet Canada's needs in this technological age?

Lester Bowles Pearson (Prime Minister)

Right Hon. L. B. Pearson (Prime Minister):

A reply to a similar question a year ago stated that the government had considered the advisability of establishing a Parliamentary Committee on Scientific Research but felt it would be best to defer it until after the establishment of the Scientific Secretariat. Since that time, progress has been made in the establishment of the Secretariat in the Privy Council Office and it has received

representations from a number of scientific and other organizations. The Secretariat has worked on the legislation to establish a Science Council of Canada which was announced in the Speech from the Throne. Following consideration of the legislation and the setting up of the Council, there would be advantage in putting before a Committee information concerning the views of interested organizations in Canada, those of the council, and recommendations concerning measures to encourage the progress and application of scientific research in Canada. The proposal to amend Standing Order 65 includes provision for a special committee on Industry, Research and Energy Development.
