BELL CANADA RATE INCREASES-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

New Democratic Party

Mr. David Lewis (York South):

Mr. Speaker, I seek unanimous consent to move a motion under Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Since the motion speaks for itself I do not think I need take any time to explain it. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House is of the opinion that the government should use the powers it has under section 64(1) of the National Transportation Act to rescind immediately the decision of the Canadian Transport Commission granting a rate increase to Bell Canada since such increase is not justified and is really a tax on the consumers by the corporation to provide it with interest-free capital for expansion.

Robert Lorne Stanfield (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Robert L. Stanfield (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Acting Prime Minister concerning comments attributed in the press to the chairman of the Public Service Commission and the alleged reference by the chairman to members of the public service as "corruptible slobs". Will the Acting Prime Minister say whether he has made any inquiries or checked into these comments in order to ascertain whether Mr. Carson has any explanation?

Liberal

Hon. C. M. Drury (President of the Treasury Board):

Mr. Speaker, perhaps I might answer that question. The alleged remark apparently occurred during the course of a speech made to members of the personnel association yesterday. I understand Mr. Carson has protested to the editor of the newspaper that carried the report and has provided an explanation of the context in which certain words were used. A motion has just been made to refer the subject matter of this particular speech to the committee. It is my understanding that Mr. Carson will appear as a witness before this committee shortly and perhaps that occasion might be used to clarify this matter.
