Hon. Michel Cote (Minister of Supply and Services):

First of all, Mr. Speaker, we did not wait for my colleague's representations before meeting with the workers. I met with them the first time they asked, at 11.30 this morning. I did not really need the intervention of my colleague.

Second, Mr. Speaker, when making reference to the Government's concern over the future of Canadian shipyards people should know-as my colleague does-that we are in a position to award various contracts from coast to coast precisely because our Government assumes its responsibilities. We will continue to defend the interests not only of Quebecers but of all Canadians as well.

Hon. Michel Cote (Minister of Supply and Services):

Mr. Speaker, I can only repeat the answer I gave my colleague: all standard procedures have been followed. I did respond to the allegations brought to my attention. Should my colleague have additional allegations or claims to make, I will be pleased to entertain them and act accordingly, Mr. Speaker. But until I get proof to the contrary I hope the credibility of the Department and the census or those who are responsible for these procedures will be maintained in all fairness.
