October 29, 1979

Mr. R. E. McKinley (Huron-Bruce):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Public Works. During the last Parliament we advocated a revenue dependency policy for the Department of Public Works. This would be a charge-back policy to the departments of government for the space they occupy, and would be a built-in incentive for cost savings and would ensure the efficient use of government space.

Can the minister advise us if he is heading toward such a policy, what progress is being made, or if it has been forgotten?

Mr. R. E. McKinley (Huron-Bruce):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Agriculture. Now that the Canadian Chicken Marketing Agency has been set up and negotiations are being held with the United States government on the amount of imports which will be allowed into Canada, and due to the fact that there is a tremendous surplus of chickens in the United States which is having the effect of forcing the price of chickens in Canada down below the cost of production, could the minister tell the House how those

[Mr. MacKay.l

negotiations are proceeding and when the Canadian chicken producers can expect some relief?

Mr. McKinley:

Mr. Speaker, it seems to me that there were some press reports which were slightly misinterpreted in that they said the duties carried out by CUSO were not in fact very dependable. I believe those press reports were not completely accurate.

If there is a favourable report from the investigation under way by CIDA and the government that CUSO is a dependable organization and that the duties carried out by CUSO are necessary, would the government then confirm that it would be continuing the financing and contracting for that operation?

Mr. R. E. McKinley (Huron-Middlesex):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the parliamentary secretary to the minister responsible for the Canadian International Development Agency, CIDA. CIDA, as the parliamentary secretary knows, is currently reviewing its funding arrangements with CUSo' the Canadian University Service Overseas, an organization which is heavily dependent on CIDA's support for generating its own volunteer resources.

March 22, 1979

My question is: Since CUSO has contracts with many foreign countries and a large pool of committed talent offering its skills at very low salaries, does the parliamentary secretary recognize the need to continue providing government assistance to CUSO to maintain the infrastructure upon which this volunteer talent depends?

Mr. McKinley:

It seems to me that the other provinces are not treated in this way. For instance, all of Quebec is covered by the ARDA agreement. I wonder what the problem is. Is it because there are no ministers from western Ontario who have any clout?
