STUDENT SUMMER EMPLOYMENT-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

David Samuel Horne MacDonald

Progressive Conservative

Mr. David MacDonald (Egmont):

Mr. Speaker, in accordance with Standing Order 43 I ask the unanimous consent of the House to move the following motion of urgent and pressing necessity. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Spadina (Mr. Ryan):

That in view of the chronic increase in the unemployment rate of Canadians under the age of 24 over the last two years; the inability of government summer employment programs to assist less than 5 per cent of the over-all youth labour force in Canada and the repeated failure of the government to announce any program to adequately respond to what is developing as a major crisis in youth unemployment coming as it is at the end of the school year-

I was just coming to the direct motion, Mr. Speaker.

That this House directs the government to immediately convene a federal-provincial commission on human resource planning to develop a short-range program offering incentives to assist the hiring of young Canadians on a seasonal basis, and the development of long-range manpower planning to co-ordinate the output and enrolment of our institutions of higher education with the capacity and expansion of our labour market.

NATIONAL REVENUE

BULLETIN CONCERNING DEDUCTION FROM TAXABLE

NDP

David Lewis

New Democratic Party

Mr. David Lewis (York South):

Mr. Speaker, I seek the consent of the House to move a motion under Standing Order 43. Briefly, it relates to an information bulletin issued by the Department of National Revenue one day before the announcement of the sale by the Toronto Telegram of its subscription list to the Toronto Star. The bulletin deals with the purchase of such lists of customers or subscribers and appears to have the effect of making the purchase price paid by the Star deductible for income tax purposes. I therefore move:

That the Standing Committee on Privilege and Elections be empowered to investigate the circumstances surrounding the sale of the Toronto Telegram subscription list to the Toronto Star, particularly, the circumstances involved in the issuing the day before the sale was announced of an interpretation bulletin by the Department of National Revenue which had the effect of saving the Toronto Star $5 million in taxes at the expense of the taxpayers of Canada.

ORAL QUESTION PERIOD

ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS TO PROVIDE SUMMER EMPLOYMENT FOR STUDENTS

PC

David Samuel Horne MacDonald

Progressive Conservative

Mr. David MacDonald (Egmont):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister. It relates to recent reports from Canadian industry forecasting this summer's student unemployment prospects and the likelihood they will be unable to absorb many students into this summer's labour force. In view of the 1,300,000 students who will be looking for work very shortly and the over one-quarter of a million young people now unemployed, I wonder whether the Prime Minister can indicate what response is being planned by the government beyond the very miniscule response already announced?
