Mr. Speaker, for the guidance of the House I would like to indicate the intended business for Friday. It would be our intention to call as the first item of business government order No. 92, second reading of Bill C-208, with regard to the Bills of Exchange Act, to be followed by government order No. 66, the report stage of Bill C-182, to amend the Supreme Court Act.

TRANSFER OF INVESTMENT COMPANIES BILL FROM FINANCE TO JUSTICE AND LEGAL AFFAIRS COMMITTEE

LIB

Donald Stovel Macdonald (President of the Privy Council; Leader of the Government in the House of Commons; Liberal Party House Leader)

Liberal

Hon. Donald S. Macdonald (President of ihe Privy Council):

Mr. Speaker, there have been discussions among representatives of the parties with respect to a further redistribution of the work of the Finance Committee. I believe there will be found to be agreement to the transfer of the bill with respect to investment companies from the Finance Committee, to which it was referred after second reading, to the Standing Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs. If that assumption is correct, perhaps the following could be made an order of the House:

That the provisions of the Order of the House made February 16, 1970, in relation to the reference of Bill C-179, An Act respecting investment companies, to the Standing Committee on Finance, Trade and Economic Affairs, be rescinded and that the said bill be referred to the Standing Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs.

Mr. Macdonald (Rosedale):

Yes, Mr. Speaker. It was felt that the only committee approaching the Finance Committee in wisdom and sophistication was the Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs.

WHEAT-ACREAGE REDUCTION PROGRAM-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Donald Frank Mazankowski

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Don Mazankowski (Vegreville):

Mr. Speaker, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion under Standing Order 43 based upon an urgent and pressing necessity.

The circumstances urging me to propose this motion arise from the widespread rejection of the Operation LIFT program and the recent statements by the Minister without Portfolio (Mr. Lang) that the program will be implemented as announced despite the rejections and submissions made by the national farm organizations and other farm groups, clearly outlining the inadequacies of the program.

It is imperative that the government take immediate steps to overcome the widespread confusion and frustration existing among western farmers, created by the contents of the Operation LIFT program. I therefore

move, under Standing Order 43, the following

motion:

[DOT] (2:10 p.m.)

That as the great majority of farmers in western Canada have rejected the LIFT program, this House recommends that the government alter its proposals and bring forward new and acceptable programs to meet the urgent and desperate situation of western agriculture.
