Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):
Mr. Speaker, with unanimous consent I move:
That the standing committee on marine and fisheries be authorized to examine and consider (1) the recommendations of the international north Pacific fisheries commission that the stock of halibut in the eastern Bering sea and the stock of herring off the west coast of the Queen Charlotte islands each be exempted from the abstention principle contained in the international convention for the high seas fisheries of the north Pacific ocean, (2) the international convention for the high seas fisheries of the north Pacific ocean, and (3) the last annual report of the international north Pacific fisheries commission and, in particular, to examine and consider the possible harmful effects which such recommendations may have upon Canada's fisheries and with authority to report its findings and recommendations from time to time.
This motion is seconded by the hon. member for New Westminster (Mr. Mather).
Subtopic: MOTION TO REFER CERTAIN MATTERS TO STANDING COMMITTEE
