Mr. Bruce Halliday (Oxford):

Mr. Speaker, I have reports from two standing committees to table if I may.

First I have the honour to present in the usual format as well as in the alternate formats of Braille, computer disc, large print and an audio cassette the sixth report of the Standing Committee on Human Rights and the Status of Disabled Persons entitled Getting Back on the Road, Passenger Transportation and Persons With Disabilities.

In accordance with its unique mandate under Standing Order 108(3)(b), the committee has examined the question of transportation for disabled persons, including consideration of specific sections relating to disabled persons of the report from the National Transportation Act Review Commission entitled Competition in Transportation Policy and Legislation in Review. This report was presented to the House by the Minister of Transport on March 9, 1993.

In accordance with the provisions of Standing Order 109, the committee requests that the government table a comprehensive response to this report.

In keeping with the subject matter of this report from the standing committee and recognizing the tributes that were paid today to Speaker Fraser, I would like to recognize the fact that while he was indeed very committed to issues of environment and the military, his Scottish heritage and other matters, we should not forget that he had a very long-standing interest in the subject area of disability. He and his staff on the Hill have gone a long way to make Parliament Hill much more accessible than heretofore. We want to extend that congratulations to him.
