Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. Will the hon. member please resume his seat. I ask hon. members for their co-operation. If hon. members want to spend the whole afternoon on alleged points of order and questions of privilege, I think that will not be conducive to any kind of constructive business. I appeal to hon. members to allow the Chair to call the next item of business. The hon. member rises on a question of privilege.

Mr. Cossitt:

I think I have a legitimate question of privilege when members like the Solicitor General and the

Pierre Elliott Trudeau (Prime Minister)

Liberal

Mr. Trudeau:

Mr. Speaker, I think I might have a question of privilege, too. I do not want to go into the longstanding practice of the Prime Minister of the country being conveyed by transportation belonging to the government, whether it be by rail, by aircraft or by boat. I will stand by the accepted practice.

Pierre Elliott Trudeau (Prime Minister)

Liberal

Mr. Trudeau:

As I say, I will stand by the accepted practice, but I think I must add that I sometimes use commercial airlines when I find it is not inconvenient to the public, in the same way as I use my own private car. This being said, I want to point out once again that all members of the House, including Tories, use public transportation, use Department of National Defence aircraft and use Department of Transport aircraft, and not only to get to their ridings. I have seen several Tory frontbenchers on DND planes going overseas on several occasions, and I can name them if you want.

Mr. Bell:

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, it is electioneering by army helicopter that we object to.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. Again I appeal to hon. members. It seems to me that this exchange cannot be constructive, and I wonder whether there is any point in pursuing the matter.

The hon. member rises on a point of order and of course I have to recognize him, but I appeal to hon. members to try to get on with the business of the House. It is my impression that there is important business to be transacted this afternoon.

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Maclnnis (Cape Breton-East Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, my point of order is not a controversial one and has nothing to do with the motion that was turned down on which the Prime Minister spoke. I wish to lend my support to the previous motion moved under Standing Order 43 by a backbencher on the other side. In addition to increases in war veterans allowances, will he also press that the war veterans of this country be permitted to wear their decorations on formal occasions where the Queen or the Governor General of this country is involved?

Mr. Speaker, on the point of order and with regard to the desire of the House to deal with the amendments improving the War Veterans Allowance Act, I would advise hon. members that the government is quite ready to put this legislation before the House tomorrow and in succeeding days.

PROSPECTIVE REMOVAL OF FEED GRAINS FROM CANADIAN WHEAT BOARD-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION

PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to request the consent of the House to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity in connection with the apparent decision of the government to undermine, if not emasculate, the Canadian Wheat Board in its equivocally worded and announced prospective policy regarding domestic feed grains. The motion I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Mackenzie (Mr. Korchinski), is:

That this House views with alarm the prospective removal of feed grains from the Canadian Wheat Board, and directs the government not to permit this to be done.
