ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP

LIB

Mitchell William Sharp (Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

Hon. Mitchell Sharp (Secretary of State for External Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, an extensive study of passport security has been conducted by the Department of External Affairs over recent months in which, I might say, the advice of other departments of government has been received. As a result of these studies, a decision has been reached by the government to introduce a number of changes in Canadian passport requirements. These are summarized in an announcement which I am making today and which I now table for the information of hon. members in both our official languages.

Mr. Nesbitt:

The purpose of this bill is to ensure that in cases where deliberate neglect or abuse is present, the physician called in to treat a child patient will be made aware of his obligation to report the case to the legal authorities, namely the police, as one way of putting an end to mistreatment of children, which seems to have become endemic in our society.

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Nesbitt:

Your Honour, the purpose of this bill is to amend the Criminal Code so as not to penalize drivers who realizing that they are intoxicated or that their ability to drive is impaired, are wise enough not to drive and to stop their car immediately and refrain from continuing their journey in their present state. I might add in this regard that since the United Kingdom changed their Criminal Code in this regard, I would hope the Minister of Justice might consider sending both these bills to the Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs.
