Mr. Speaker, I will be meeting the four individuals soon. There will be a secretariat of departmental up and coming, younger officials to help them along the way. We will look at the procurement process which I think could be improved. They will have a mandate to search where they can to improve the efficiency of the department in every aspect. They will report back to me in six months, at which time I will study their recommendations.
In the House of Commons on February 4th, 2003. See this statement in context.
