Hon. Ron Huntington (Capilano):

Mr. Speaker, in the absence of the President of the Treasury Board I would like to address my question to the Right Hon. Prime Minister. The new Crown corporation legislation fails to address the priority problem with respect to the role of the boards of directors in Crown corporations. In light of the fact that Governor in

Council appointments of chairmen and chief executive officers ignore all the recommendations of the Lambert Royal Commission, of the Auditor General and of the Public Accounts Committee, could the Right Hon. Prime Minister tell us why the Government has not addressed this most essential element in Crown corporation accountability?

Hon. Ron Huntington (Capilano):

Mr. Speaker, if the Bill is so good why has it not covered, and in fact ignored, 109 mixed and joint enterprises and their subsidiaries? Perhaps the Right Hon. Prime Minister could also explain why the International Development Research Council has been given complete special exemption?

Mr. Huntington:

Mr. Speaker, in view of the total failure of these amendments to the Financial Administration Act to address the real issues that have been on the table and before committees of Parliament since 1978, why is this legislation, which has taken five years to develop, being rushed in today when he had on his desk legislation from the Clark Government, C-27, which was a far more fundamental approach to these problems than is apparently coming in today? It took only six months to prepare. Why has it taken five years to deliver this pile of confusion that is coming in today?
