Mr. Jean Lapierre (Shefford):
Mr. Speaker, since hon. members cannot ask questions directly of the minister of state
November 19, 1979
responsible for CIDA, 1 shall put my question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs.
Since the Canadian government and the coastal population of Senegal have been awaiting eagerly for two years for the construction, with the assistance of Canada, of frozen fish plants, I would like to ask the minister where this project of over $12 million stands with CIDA and whether she could give us an indication on the construction schedule of those plants.
