Mr. Milliken:

It is always nice to hear my own voice, Madam Speaker, but I want to table the report.

I happened to be the only delegate that went from this Parliament to this meeting. Only one was invited. The lot fell to the Liberal Party this year and I was selected by my Whip and the members of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association to attend this meeting.

I may say that the trip was a most interesting and enjoyable experience. I had the opportunity to meet with representatives from 15 Commonwealth countries. Their names and positions are detailed in the report. I am pleased to table this report today in fulfilment of my obligations.

Madam Speaker, I have the honour to present, in both official languages, the first report of the Subcommittee on International Financial Institutions. It is also the 19th report of the Standing Committee on Finance.

This report deals with Canada's relations with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and calls for a full scale review of Canada's relations with those two institutions.

I would like to add my thanks to the members and research staff of the committee for their hard work in making this report possible.

Kenneth Albert James (Parliamentary Secretary to the Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. James:

Madam Speaker, it is my pleasure to introduce a private member's bill which will amend the Young Offenders Act and the Criminal Code in consequence thereof.

A good number of residents in my riding of Sarnia- Lambton, local law enforcement officials and members of the judiciary have expressed concerns and suggestions with respect to the Young Offenders Act.

In response the purpose of this bill is fourfold. First, it defines a young person as someone being between the ages of 10 and 16.

Second, it will instruct a judge to give primary consideration to the protection of society when considering a transfer to adult court for repeat young offenders and those charged with a violent offence.

Third, the bill will ensure that any young person who is found to experience a destructive home environment and who is convicted is directed to proper rehabilitation facilities.

Finally, it will make the criminal record of an offender available to the offender's school principal.

It is with great pleasure that I rise today to introduce these amendments on behalf of my constituents of Sarnia-Lambton.
