ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

OFFICIAL LANGUAGES

PC

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):

Mr. Speaker, I rise pursuant to Standing Order 43 to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity superseding the one I read in the House yesterday on the matter of an alleged statement by Mr. Keith Spicer referring to English-speaking Quebeckers as "Westmount Rhodesians". I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cumberland-Colchester North (Mr. Coates):

That the matter of the address made last Saturday in Washington, D.C., by Mr. Keith Spicer, Commissioner of Official Languages, be referred immediately to the Standing Committee on Privileges and Elections for a full investigation and examination and in order to permit Mr. Spicer to answer any charges that may be made, and that the said committee report its findings along with any recommendations it may have for further action to this House as quickly as possible.

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

SC

Roland Godin

Social Credit

Mr. Roland Godin (Portneuf):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion on a matter of national interest.

Since the media are inviting Canadians to contact the friendly advisers appointed by the Department of National Revenue to guide us on the way to complete our tax returns and since a large number of unemployed people have not received their payments for the months of November and December 1972, and therefore are in danger of losing their homes or their cars or having to move, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Abitibi (Mr. Laprise):

That the House examine as promptly as possible steps to be taken in order that the Department of Manpower and Immigration be vested with authority to hire all personnel required to issue cheques refused by defective computers.
