Progressive Conservative

Hon. Walter Baker (Nepcan-Carleton):

Madam Speaker, my question is directed to the Prime Minister. On May 13, the President of the Privy Council stated that the government would be in a position to tell the House its intentions with respect to Bill C-43 on freedom of information. Would the Prime Minister now advise the House of his government's intention respecting that bill and the principle of freedom of information, and is his government now prepared to proceed with the bill, or is it the intention of the government to allow it to die on the Order Paper?
