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?
