Hon. Pierre H. Cadieux (Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) and Minister of State (Youth) and Deputy Leader of the Government in the House of Commons):
Madam Speaker, as the hon. member knows the Minister of Labour is out of the House today on government business. He will be in a better position to answer the question on his return.
However, I wish to underline the fact that the Minister of Labour has been very much involved with this particular issue. It is a very difficult and complicated one. As far as I can recall he did everything that could be done at the time, bearing in mind the different legalities involved, et cetera.
I am sure the minister will respond personally to the hon. member when he returns.
