Mr. J. C. Munro (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Manpower and Immigration):

Mr. Speaker, of course when the white paper claims that these non-discriminatory selection criteria are used it is in effect stating that the selection criteria being used will be the same with respect to proposed immigrants from all countries. There have been selection criteria based on part 31 of the regulations which have favoured one country over another in bringing immigrants into this country, as the hon. member well knows. It is the hope under the white paper that this type of discrimination in the application of selection criteria will be removed; that is why the term "non-discriminatory selection criteria" is used in the white paper.
