Gerald William Baldwin (Official Opposition House Leader; Progressive Conservative Party House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. W. Baldwin (Peace River):

Mr. Speaker, of course this is not a debatable motion, but on a point of order I should like to say that while we accept this motion we do so without prejudice to our right to assert when the estimates are considered by the committee that they include Governor General's warrants. In accepting the motion now we reserve the right, if necessary, to take exception to the use of Governor General's warrants which are payments urgently required for the public good. Our

acceptance now is without prejudice to that right being asserted later.

IMPOSITION BY UNITED STATES OF DUTY ON MICHELIN TIRES IMPORTED FROM CANADA-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION

PC

J. Robert Howie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. Robert Howie (York-Sunbury):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to ask leave of the House to move a motion on a subject of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the wide repercussions of the recent duties imposed by United States authorities on Michelin tires manufactured in Canada, raising consequent questions about our regional economic development policies, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):

That the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce and the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion meet immediately with their United States counterparts for the purpose of ascertaining whether the Americans would rescind these duties until multilateral trade talks between our two nations take place.
