REGULATIONS AND OTHER STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS

Mr. Speaker:

Yesterday, when the hon. member for Fundy-Royal proposed to move this motion, the Chair drew the attention of hon. members to a difficulty in relation to the form of the third report of the Standing Joint Committee on Regulations and Other Statutory Instruments.

I think I should insist on the fact that it is not the substance of the report which concerns the Chair, but rather its form. As I stated yesterday, there is a procedure established by the House of Commons Act and the supply legislation for the employment of committee staff. The method suggested in this case appears to the Chair to be inconsistent with that observed in the past. I am aware, however, that arrangements have been made in the other place to overcome the difficulty, and I would think that in the circumstances it would be in order to put the motion.

I might also add that, as the hon. member for Fundy-Royal pointed out yesterday, there have been consultations of which I was not aware, which puts a different complexion on the situation. I have to assume that this motion is being put by consent, so it will not necessarily constitute a precedent. This having been said, I am sure hon. members will expect the Chair to put the motion.

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to discuss a matter of importance and urgency.

In view of the present inflation and constant increase in prices generally, in view of the absolute necessity that foods be available in sufficient quantities and at reasonable prices, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Temiscamingue (Mr. Caouette):

That this House recommend to the government that it immediately lower the interest on farm loans in addition to subsidizing farm production needs where the threat exists of shortages or excessive price increases.

Mr. Otto Jelinek (High Park-Humber Valley):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to request the consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the growing number of illegal strikes which have had the effect of completely paralysing major sectors of our economy, and in view of the fact that no steps have been taken by the government to prosecute individuals disregarding legal contracts or back-to-work orders, and inasmuch as

this has had the effect of encouraging future actions of this sort, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton Mountain (Mr. Beattie):

That immediately upon the next such violation by any individual or group of individuals so involved, the Solicitor General be instructed to proceed with charges against them and that maximum penalties be sought, and that all matters pertaining to illegal strikes be referred to the Standing Committee on Labour, Manpower and Immigration.
