Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Monday, December 2, 1974 Science ministry-smoke but no fire OTTAWA (CP) The ministry of state for science and technology has put up a lot of smoke, but produced lit- tle fire since its inception in 1971, says a study published Monday by the Science Coun- cil of Canada. The experimental nature of the ministry and the practical problems of formulating science policy have "perplex- ed, frustrated and confused" government officials inside and outside the ministry, says the 95-page study. The document is an attempt to assess the effectiveness of the minstry of state for urban affairs and the ministry of sci- ence and technology, both of which were established in 1971 to assist federal government Of 145 and Can't Remember?

The study suggests the urban affairs ministry has had the most success in setUng out policy and in co-ordinating programs. The urban affairs ministry has had a more visible and po- litically-sensitive objective, namely, the improvement of urban life, says the study. Science policy, by com- parison, was "not readily ex- plicable or even interesting to wide sections of the public." However, the study deals primarily with the science ministry, noting that it reduc- ed its effectiveness by seeking publicity for its programs through the media without notifying departments that would be affected by the programs. "Such revelations in the press have significantly reduced the ministry's effec- tiveness by reducing the con- fidence with which officials may provide information or otherwise deal with it on sen- sitive policy issues." However, the report was written last spring and Dr. Maurice Leclair, who became science ecretary following the July federal election, said in an interview the ministry now is overcoming some of the problems pinpointed by the study. For instance, the report, written by political scientist Peter Aucoin and science historian Richard French, says ministries of state are at a disadvantage because, without the large budgets and operating mandates of federal departments, they lack the power to bargain for impor- tant information. Dr. Leclair said the ministry now has access to all the information it needs. Science Minister C. M. Drury, former treasury board president has taken over the portfolio since the report was written and is considered to be in a more powerful bargaining position than his predecessors who were junior cabinet ministers.
