THE PRIME MINISTER

EXPRESSIONS OF SYMPATHY ON DEATH OF HIS MOTHER

PC

Robert Lorne Stanfield (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

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

Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister is not in his place today. I simply rise, not for the purpose of attempting any eulogy of the Prime Minister's mother, which would be very presumptuous of me, but simply to express on behalf of my colleagues and myself, though realizing that there is nothing of great help one can say in these circumstances, the deepest sympathy with the Prime Minister in the death of his mother.

Mr. David Lewis (York South):

Mr. Speaker, may I just as briefly express on behalf of my colleagues and myself our deepest sympathy to the Prime Minister on the death of his mother. I had occasion once to watch the Prime Minister on television and to learn with what affection and respect he regarded his mother. Even though most of us did not have the opportunity of meeting her when she was alive, we feel deeply for the Prime Minister.

Mr. Real Caouette (Temiscamingue):

Mr. Speaker, my colleagues and myself join the Leader of the Official Opposition and the leader of the New Democratic Party in extending to the right hon. Prime Minister our most sincere sympathy on the occasion of the death of his mother. We all know that the loss of a mother is a heavy one. And it is so for a Prime Minister. Therefore, Mr. Speaker, we express our sincere sympathy to the right hon. Prime Minister and to all members of the Trudeau family.

James Aloysius McGrath

Progressive Conservative

Mr. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43 in order to bring before the House a question of urgent public importance. I refer to the fact that negotiations to resolve the dispute between the postal workers and the Treasury Board have broken down. The postal workers have accepted the majority report of the conciliation board, but the Treasury Board now appears to be

making use of a report which differs from that which was subject to its previous approval. I would therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Dartmouth-Halifax East (Mr. Forrestall):

That the House now adjourn for the purpose of discussing this matter of urgent public importance.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. The hon. member will realize, I am sure, that the motion is out of order. He is asking for the adjournment of the House under the terms of Standing Order 43. This ought to be done under the terms of Standing Order 26. Therefore the motion cannot be put.

Mr. McGrath:

Mr. Speaker, may I rephrase my motion and move, instead, that the subject matter of my motion, namely, the breakdown in postal negotiations, be referred to the Standing Committee on Manpower and Labour?

Mr. Speaker:

The hon. member is, of course, amending his motion with the consent of the House. There should be no difficulty about that, because he does not need to give notice of a motion under Standing Order 43. This having been said, I have to inquire whether there is unanimous consent.
