ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

REGIONAL ECONOMIC EXPANSION

PC

Robert Muir

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Robert Muir (Cape Breton-The Sydneys):

Mr. Speaker, I rise at this time under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion. In view of the grave concern and deep unrest that now exists in Nova Scotia as a result of the recently announced commissioning by the Department of Regional Economic Expansion of a study to investigate the economic feasibility of a steel complex in Atlantic Canada, and in light of the fact that another steel operation in eastern Canada would definitely jeopardize the future of the operations of the steel plant at Sydney and the jobs of over 4,000 steelworkers, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cape Breton-East Richmond (Mr. Maclnnis):

That the federal government immediately cancel the study undertaken to investigate a site for a possible steel complex in eastern Canada and instead solely concentrate on assisting the Nova Scotia government to modernize and diversify the present steel operation at Sydney.

Mr. Speaker, the future fate of the economy of Cape Breton could well hang in the balance as a result of the stupidity of the federal government in commissioning this study.

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

Mr. Speaker, this question is directed to the Minister of Finance who has forecast a rate of growth of 5 per cent in real terms during 1974 and in his budget presentation last night accompanying figures indicated that the increase in income tax collections in the current fiscal year would be $1V4 billion. In making this calculation, what was the assumption as to the rate of inflation?
