Mr. J. A. Jerome (Parliamentary Secretary to President of the Privy Council):

I am informed by the Canadian International Development Agency and the Company of Young Canadians as follows: 1. Financial support has been provided to CUSO by the Canadian Government as follows: Fiscal Year 62/63, $3,294; 65/66, $458,750; 66/67, $742,776; 67/68, $1,678,250; 68/69, $2,374,360; 69/70, $3,260,000; 70/71, $4,250,000.

2. CUSO is a qualified Canadian non-governmental organization under the criteria for eligibility for financial support of non-government organizations in the field of development assistance. Financial support by CIDA is provided in the form of yearly contracts with CUSO to send Canadians to work in developing countries in accordance with the objects of CUSO as contained in the Supplementary Letters Patent granted to this organization.

3. Financial support is provided to CUSO by the Canadian International Development Agency through the nongovernmental organizations program.

4. As CUSO is primarily interested in the ability of its members to carry out the job in hand the personnel records maintained are not oriented to automatically retrieve this type of information. As far as can be readily ascertained by CUSO two people who are now members

of that organization were previously associated with CYC.

5. To the best of the CYC's knowledge, two members have been former members of CUSO.

Donald Stovel Macdonald (Minister of National Defence)

Hon. Donald S. Macdonald (Minister of National Defence):

1. The Canadian Forces have approximately

24,000 married quarters of various types throughout Canada, most of which were built during the period 1950-1960. In addition, 4,400 are leased or rented in Canada, and 3,880 in Europe. Insofar as (a), and (b) are concerned the requested information is not readily available in Headquarters' records and the necessary expert staff is not available to undertake the large amount of work which would be required to gather the necessary data.

2. All original construction costs were funded from departmental appropriations during the year or years of construction and there is no procedure or policy for the recovery of these costs.

3. Up to 1968 the cost of married quarters to occupants was related to an allowance in accordance with occupant's rank, regardless of the type and size of quarter occupied. As a result it is not possible to determine the average rental allowance paid for married quarters prior to 1968. Since 1968 the rental charges for all federal married quarters have been based on a CMHC appraised rental system. See Hansard dated 6 April, 1970, pages 5492-3.

4. (a) The maintenance and renovation costs for married quarters are budgetted annually by each base and included in departmental appropriations; (b) The general policy and guidelines for the maintenance and renovation of married quarters is published in Canadian Forces Construction Engineering Manual (CFP 120) which is

Orders for Returns

held by all Base Commanders and Engineer Officers; (i) to keep married quarters in good repair subject, of course, to the availability of funds; (ii) no.
