Hon. Iean-Luc Pepin (Minister oi Industry, Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, the budget of my department, contrary to those statistics, indicates that the degree of research and development done across the board in Canada with the support of my department is increasing. If my friend wants to look at my estimates he will witness that fact.

Mr. John Burton (Regina East):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct my question to the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion. In view of the fact the minister undertook to investigate a serious omission from his monthly report to parliament of a $6.1 million grant to McCain's Foods, and in view of the reported unavailability of the minister to appear before the standing committee until May 18, will he inform the House now why this information was not provided as required under section 16 of the Regional Development Incentives Act?
