Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Secretary of State for External Affairs. In the House yesterday with reference to negotiations that are going on between Canada and Pakistan concerning nuclear safeguards, the minister said:
What is of concern to Canada ... is the spent fuel that comes out of the Canadian reactor and that may subsequently be reprocessed in the facility provided by France.
I should like to ask the minister now whether he will assure the House that no further shipments of uranium from Canada to Pakistan will take place unless Pakistan accepts the point that Canadian safeguards apply not merely to the CANDU reactor provided by Canada but also to the use of spent fuel from the Canadian reactor now in Pakistan.
