Hon. Michel Cote (Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, I announced last week that we were in the midst of a period of intensive consultation and study. We are waiting to receive comments from all interested parties that want to air their views on the subject, and I think this Government will want to have all these opinions so that it can prepare recommendations for submission to Cabinet in due course.

Hon. Michel Cote (Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, I can tell the Hon. Member that the responsibility of the department is to listen to all comments and consult the public at large with respect to metrication. That is what we are doing now and as soon as we are through consulting we will have an opportunity to set forth the government's final policy on that issue.

Hon. Michel Cote (Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, again 1 say to the Hon. Member that the department's responsibility is to listen to the various spokespersons and interest groups and, as far as I know, the Consumers' Association of Canada does speak for a legitimate interest group. It so happens that I had a meeting this morning with CAC representatives, a meeting which ended just before the question period. Our discussions covered various issues concerning the Consumers' Association of Canada. As I said, the government has every interest in listening to all groups, including the CAC.
