Hon. Francis Fox (Minister of Communications):
informed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as follows:
1. (a) Burton Kramer Associates Ltd., Graphic Design Consultants, 206 Bloor Street West, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
(b) The contract signed on June 27, 1973 with Burton Kramer Associates Limited called for the payment of $50,000 for the research, design and development of a symbol. The contract also called for assessment and application phases, the fees for which were to be based upon standard design office rates.
No accurate statement of the amounts paid under these later phases can now be provided since the accounts payable records for these related services, dated nine and ten years ago, are no longer in existence.
