Hon. Ron Basford (Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, the bill is before Parliament. I would not want to speculate on what it turns into because we are asking for public comment on the bill and it may well be amended. Certainly, the whole purpose of the Competition Act as proposed in Bill C-256 is to put forward a far more flexible approach to industrial organization than is possible under the existing Combines Investigation Act.

We certainly will be, and again it will be important to notice that the range of facilities will include attempting to find other employment for people who may be laid off, and in providing appropriate mobility grants if those are applicable when the men involved are suitable for jobs available elsewhere in Canada.

PROPOSED BAN ON CIGARETTE ADVERTISING-EFFECT OF ANNOUNCEMENT BY INDUSTRY ON GOVERNMENT LEGISLATION

Mr. Barry Mather (Surrey-White Rock):

Mr. Speaker, I wanted to direct my question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare, but in his absence would you permit me to ask one of his colleagues to take note of it. Having in mind the significant announcement made today by the tobacco industry of Canada that at the end of this year it will discontinue all television and radio cigarette advertising, my question is this: will this announcement deter the government from proceeding in due course with its amending legislation to cover all forms of advertising, including printed forms relating to that dangerous product?

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister. In light of the fact that university enrolment is down by 75,000 from that expected by the Economic Council of Canada because of student unemployment this summer, and in light of the

Mr. Speaker,

I believe the hon. member knows, and the House knows, that a report is to be made after the assessment of the Opportunities for Youth program has been terminated. I assume that some information of this kind may be available.

Mr. Paproski:

A further supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. Did the government ever have a policy this summer for giving priority assistance to poor and married students, or was the assistance to be just for Grits?
