Mr. Walter Pitman (Peterborough):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Defence Production. Could the minister indicate to the house whether any final decision has yet been made with regard to the CL-41 so that the workers may have some confidence that production will begin at the Canadair plant?

Mr. Pitman:

I am quite willing to accept that amendment because then companies would be able, if they were asked for this particular information, to give the name, address and citizenship or nationality of a director. If a director were a Canadian citizen, he would not have to say he was a Ukrainian national or a Japanese national. You are using "or" and not "and". I think this is quite acceptable and the resultant information will be quite different from that which would be

received if the paragraph were left unchanged.

I very much appreciate the minister's remarks with regard to his desire not to be guilty of any kind of discrimination, but as matters stand now this is more in line with the minister in his other areas of activity. I am sure the minister does not want this to become a snooping bill, or have it come to be regarded as a snooping bill by directors of corporations and unions.

If a person can state he is a Canadian citizen and does not have to state he is of Japanese, Ukrainian or Chinese origin then that would be very acceptable.
