Mr. Barry Moore (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of National Revenue):

Mr. Speaker, I would just like to point out that the GST replaced an outdated and inefficient federal sales tax that freed up business from an archaic and inefficient tax and replaced it with a simpler and more equitable one.

Turning to my colleague's remarks, I want to emphasize that municipalities receive a partial rebate of any taxes paid by them on their inputs. This ensures that they do not pay more tax than they did under the previous FST system.

Mr. Moore:

Oh, yes it is true.

Moreover, municipalities do not charge GST on the vast majority of standard residential services, including the provision of water. Simply put, consumers do not pay GST on supplies of water provided by municipalities.

In fact, under the GST a mechanism has been provided to allow provincial government agencies such as the Saskatchewan Water Corporation to ask to be treated like a municipality when it performs municipal functions.

In other words, households in Saskatchewan do not need to pay GST on water. The means are in place for the Saskatchewan Water Corporation to ensure that supplies of water are exempt from the GST. This mechanism was provided to ensure competitive equity between municipalities and other organizations that supply water.

I would suggest to my hon. friend in closing that the solution to this matter lies with the provincial government rather than with the federal government.

Mr. Barry Moore (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of National Revenue):

Mr. Speaker, the foetal alcohol syndrome represents the extreme end of the spectrum of adverse birth that comes related to alcohol use and abuse during pregnancy.

Recognition of these problems is relatively recent in part because they are often difficult to diagnose at the time of birth.

It is believed that FAS is more likely to occur in cases of abusive drinking, often combined with poor nutrition and smoking, but no safe level alcohol consumption can be defined for a pregnant women and her foetus.

Health and Welfare Canada has supported a number of initiatives over the past 10 years in this area of concern. They include a national research symposium in 1983, an FAS education package and resource kit in 1989, and most recently the community project Crabtree in Vancouver and many other projects.

April 30, 1992

With respect to the proposal to put warning labels on alcoholic beverages, the minister has already indicated he wants to consult the provinces and the territories. In addition, he has asked his officials to mount a co-ordinated departmental effort to look at the difficult issue of FAS more closely. Also the department looks forward to the report and recommendations of the parliamentary committee currently studying this matter.

Foetal alcohol syndrome is a tragic and complex problem. There are no simple solutions. We look for-
