Mr. Mark Rose (Fraser Valley West):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43 I wish to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity. If the House is disposed to deal with this motion, I feel it could be passed without debate. In view of the fact that Australia is sending its attorney general and New Zealand is sending its deputy prime minister to France and are contemplating

international court action to persuade France not to proceed with its planned Pacific nuclear tests, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kootenay West (Mr. Harding):

That this House calls on the government to launch an immediate protest against these planned atmospheric nuclear tests preferably by sending a high-ranking government representative to the capital of France and also to the People's Republic of China to protest that country's forthcoming tests as well.

Mr. Rene Matte (Champlain):

Mr. Speaker, under Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House in order to move a motion concerning a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that the Prime Minister's notice of motion concerning the official languages, is unacceptable especially with respect to the French-speaking people of this country, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Abitibi (Mr. Laprise):

That this notice of motion be withdrawn and replaced by a more adequate and appropriate one.

Mr. Speaker:

The Chair entertains some doubts concerning the admissibility of the motion, but it is simpler for me to inquire of the House and determine whether there is unanimous consent.

The House has heard the hon. member's motion. Under Standing Order 43, this motion requires the unanimous consent of the House. Is there such unanimous consent?
