Progressive Conservative

Hon. Lincoln M. Alexander (Acting Minister of Employment and Immigration):

Speaking on behalf of the Minister of Employment and Immigration, Mr. Speaker, I do not accept the premise of the hon. member's question. What has occurred, as I understand it, is that there was some concern about the number of family classes being admitted, as opposed to independents. I can assure the hon. member that the reunification of families, in terms of admitting others to this great country of ours, is uppermost in the minister's mind.
