Mr. Bruce Halliday (Oxford):

Mr. Speaker, as we approach National Access Awareness Week I have the honour to table, in both official languages, the fourth report of the Standing Committee on Human Rights and the Status of Disabled Persons entitled "Completing the Circle: Report on Aboriginal People with Disabilities".
I believe the tabling of this report comes at a most appropriate time as we mark National Aboriginal Week in Canada. As well the United Nations has declared 1993 the International Year of Indigenous People.
Of special interest, I am honoured to present this report in a format including four different styles. One is large print, the second is Braille, the third is audio cassette and the fourth is computer disc. I am happy indeed to present these. I trust that other committees will perhaps follow suit in presenting their reports simultaneously in these various alternate formats.
Pursuant to Standing Order 109 the committee requests a comprehensive government response to this report.
