FEASIBILITY OF USE OF UNIT TRAINS FOR SHIPMENT-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Richard Russell Southam

Progressive Conservative

Mr. R. R. Southam (Qu'Appelle-Moose Mountain):

Mr. Speaker, under Standing Order 43 I request the unanimous consent of the House to propose a motion on a matter of the most urgent and pressing necessity. The subject is the government's proposed policy to utilize the inland terminals at Saskatoon and Moose Jaw to assemble unit trains to ship cleaned grain to export positions and the subsequent purchase of 2,000 new hopper cars to implement that policy. In view of the well-founded criticism that the use of these trains for grain shipping will add additional costs to the grain moving system, and therefore to the producer, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lisgar (Mr. Murta):

That the Standing Committee on Agriculture be instructed to investigate the financial feasibility of the use of unit trains for grain shipment from inland terminals, and report back to this House as soon as possible.

RAILWAY BOXCAR ALLOCATION TO MEET FARMERS' DELIVERIES-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

William George Knight

New Democratic Party

Mr. Bill Knight (Assiniboia):

Mr. Speaker, I rise pursuant to Standing Order 43 to ask the unanimous consent of the House to propose a motion in the following case of urgent and pressing necessity. Because of the lack of boxcar allocation by the railway companies to meet the specified time of Wheat Board quotas, thus creating inability on the part of farmers to deliver their grain within the specified time, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Gleave): __ .

That the question of boxcar allocation by the CPR and CNR be referred to the Standing Committee on Agriculture and that the standing committee report to the House thereon by the end of the month.

QUEBEC-LONGSHOREMEN'S STRIKE-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

SC

Gilbert F. Rondeau

Social Credit

Mr. Gilbert Rondeau (Shefford):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. I wish to ask the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion on a matter of pressing necessity, concerning the longshoremen's strike which has been lasting for months in the ports of Quebec City, Montreal and Trois-Rivieres, on account of one item in an already signed collective agreement which is interpreted one way by the employers and another by the unions.

As the Minister of Labour (Mr. O'Connell) does not permit the employers-
