Mr. Howard McCurdy (Windsor-St. Clair):

Madam Speaker, my question is directed to the Secretary of State who on June 10 said that she was engaged in
June 16, 1993

extensive consultations about improvements to be made to the student loan program and that the program was to be enhanced to provide students with increased support.
Is it not a fact that the National Advisory Group on Student Financial Assistance had been ignored for a year and finally had to demand a meeting which was granted on June 2? Among other things at that meeting, rather than consultation, they were told that the student loan limits would be unchanged and that the government's promise to remove the 3 per cent tax would not be fulfilled.
