JUSTICE AND LEGAL AFFAIRS


First report of Standing Committee on Justice and Legal affairs-Mr. Tolmie. [Editor's note: For text of above report, see today's Votes and Proceedings.]


ORDER FOR ADJOURNMENT UNTIL MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23

LIB

Donald Stovel Macdonald (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Hon. Donald S. Macdonald (Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, there have been some discussions between representatives of the parties with respect to tomorrow's business. As I think most hon. members know, arrangements have now been made so that members of the House of Commons from all parties may attend the funeral of our former colleague from Cham-bly, which will take place in that community tomorrow afternoon. On that basis it would be necessary to depart from the House at 11.45 a.m. and we would not return until almost five o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

There have been a number of discussions with regard to the possible timetable for the House, but I think there is now agreement that rather than attempting to meet for any part of the day it would be more appropriate if we do not have a sitting tomorrow at all. On that basis an order in the following form would seem to be appropriate:

That when this House is adjourned this day, it shall stand adjourned until 2 p.m. Monday, November 23, 1970.

As I say, there have been discussions about an order in this form. If there is found to be general agreement, I wonder if unanimous consent to that order could be sought.

LABOUR CONDITIONS

UNEMPLOYMENT-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

George Harris Hees

Progressive Conservative

Hon. George Hees (Prince Edward-Hastings):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion under Standing Order 43 to discuss a matter of urgent national importance-the report of the Dominion Bureau of Statistics yesterday that during the third quarter of this year, which has just ended, the country experienced the highest rate of unemployment it has had in any similar period since the latter days of the great depression of the 1930's; and particularly, the refusal of the government to introduce positive measures to stimulate the economy, and the refusal of ministers, particularly those with economic portfolios, to be present in the House when this important matter is being discussed to listen to the suggestions put forward by the elected representatives of the people for combating serious and rising unemployment.

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

I therefore move, under Standing Order 43, that this matter be brought before the Standing Committee on Finance, Trade and Economic Affairs, where expert witnesses from the fields of industry and labour can be called to make positive suggestions to the government for dealing with this very serious situation, in the hope that these suggestions will be paid attention to and acted upon without delay.
