Most Recent Speeches (Page 1 of 608)


December 13, 1979

Hon. Heward Grafftey (Minister of State for Science and Technology):

Mr. Speaker, I can inform the hon. member that a few weeks ago we voted an increase of $40 million to universities in support of research and development. It is true that there are no incentives for research and development in the budget. We put down some plans a few weeks ago with respect to incentives for research and development. In the meantime, I can assure the hon. member we are going to act very shortly in the area of research and development with direct help to industry, but not necessarily through tax incentives.

Mr. Grafftey:

I am sure that when the last government narrowed the choice down to these two, they did not agree with what the hon. member has just said. One is never satisfied: I am the first to admit, with the hon. member, that we are never satisfied with the totality or the quality of the R and D offsets. But we are making sure, by monitoring this matter as closely as possible, that they are going to be maximized as much as possible in terms of R and D done in Canada from whoever gets this contract.

Hon. Heward Grafftey (Minister of State for Science and Technology):

Mr. Speaker, I can assure the hon. member that officials of my department are on the review panel for the new fighter aircraft. We are ascertaining to as great an extent as possible that research and development offsets and technological transfers will be maximized as much as possible.

Let me repeat, that my officials are monitoring this matter very, very closely. I appreciate the hon. member's interest. 1

can assure him that everything possible is being done with either of these aircraft-as he knows, the choice has not yet been made between the aircraft-to ensure that the R and D offsets are as great as possible.
