Hon. Mitchell Sharp (Secretary of State for External Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, an extensive study of passport security has been conducted by the Department of External Affairs over recent months in which, I might say, the advice of other departments of government has been received. As a result of these studies, a decision has been reached by the government to introduce a number of changes in Canadian passport requirements. These are summarized in an announcement which I am making today and which I now table for the information of hon. members in both our official languages.
