ATLANTIC REGION FREIGHT RATES-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Elmer MacIntosh MacKay

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Elmer M. MacKay (Central Nova):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. It concerns reports which indicate that the railroads are about to seek further increases in freight rates in the maritime region. In view of the fact that this represents the ninth increase in freight rates in 30 months, and in view of the crippling effect that such additional increase would have-

DEPARTMENT OF THE SOLICITOR GENERAL BILL

MEASURE RESPECTING CORRECTIONAL SERVICE PROGRAM


On the order: Introduction of Bills. June 2, 1972-Mr. Howard (Skeena)-Bill intituled: "An Act respecting the Department of the Solicitor General (correctional service program).


IND

Lucien Lamoureux (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Independent

Mr. Speaker:

The hon. member for Skeena has given notice of his intention to propose this motion. The Chair has had an opportunity to study the hon. member's proposed bill and I have extremely serious reservations about the bill from a procedural standpoint. Generally speaking, it seems to me that the hon. member is clearly attempting by the bill to circumvent the normal supply procedures. If the hon. member thinks he can convince the Chair that this is the kind of bill which should be allowed to be proposed, I will hear him, but after giving the matter serious thought I am sure he will appreciate that this would be a very novel way of considering supply proposals in the House if this bill were submitted for the consideration of the House.

Mr. Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of the bill is certainly not to circumvent anything. As presented the purpose would be clearly to deal with a limitation upon otherwise wasteful expenditures on the part of the

government. In light of the fact you have raised a question about the bill, I wonder whether we might let it stand and consider it on another day?

Mr. Speaker:

Perhaps the hon. member might want to reflect on the suggestion I have made. I will hear him if he wants to submit a procedural argument tomorrow, and I will make my ruling at that time. For the moment, the bill will not put for first reading.
