Hon. J. J. McCann (Minister of National Revenue):

I thank the hon. member for having given me notice of this question. The answer is that this date cannot be changed because it is in the statute and is item 83 of the Customs Tariff. It is bound by GATT and could only be changed by international agreement and by subsequent amendment to the statute.
