Hon. Michel Cote (Minister of Supply and Services):
Mr. Speaker, first of all, in the absence of the responsible Minister who is attending to departmental business, I think the Minister fully dealt with this question, and first of all with a number of false allegations which were made by the Hon. Member.
Second, the financial statements were submitted to the Auditor General, who noted certain discrepancies regarding specific expenditure items. The Department immediately set up an audit team which submitted a report. The report will be discussed tomorrow, and the Minister has promised to act on its findings, Mr. Speaker.
