Mr. Terry Clifford (London -Middlesex):
Mr. Speaker. it is my pleasure to present to the House, on behalf of the Canada-Europe Parliamentary Association, in both official languages, the report on the Canadian delegation to the annual OECD debate of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly, September 30 to October 2, 1992.
It is important for all parliamentarians of this House to know that at this debate it was firmly established that from now on there will be a formal debate held each year on the doings at the OECD.
Our government is heavily committed to the OECD. This gives parliamentarians a chance to find out the workings of the OECD, how it spends its money, what Canada's role is and to question the future of that assembly.
Finally, parliamentary debate at our delegation's urging has now been established.
