ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

POST OFFICE

PC

Benno Friesen

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Benno Friesen (Surrey-White Rock):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under Standing Order 43 on a matter which on the surface may not appear to be of urgent and pressing necessity but which recognizes that we are fast approaching the end of the month when pension cheques will be going out. The House is well aware of the firm belief of the Postmaster General (Mr. Mackasey) in incentives within the work force as well as his commitment for increasing the efficiency of the Post Office. Since a great many businesses across Canada suffer from an interruption in the postal service, and since the lives of many Canadians, especially those depending on pension incomes, are frustrated by a disruption in the postal service, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Oxford (Mr. Halliday):

That the Postmaster General be instructed by this House to institute a policy whereby all postal employees will receive their pay cheques through the regular mail service using the postal code.

André-Gilles Fortin

Social Credit

Mr. Andre Fortin (Lotbiniere):

Mr. Speaker, under Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to discuss a very urgent matter.

Owing to the very serious situation of eastern producers as a result of the new dairy policy, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Richmond (Mr. Beaudoin):

That an emergency debate be held in this House as soon as possible on the forthcoming new dairy policy, about which producers have not

been consulted, taking into consideration this strike which more especially deprives eastern producers of the feed grain essential to their production.

COMMUNICATIONS

NDP

Stuart Malcolm Leggatt

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that the B.C. Telephone Company is now requesting a rate increase of some 20 per cent before the Canadian Transport Commission and received an increase just last month, in view of the fact that the minister of communications of British Columbia has requested that an inquiry be made into the pricing policies of B.C. Telephone Company and its related companies, and in view of the fact that some $83.7 million was sent to its parent company in New York in 1973, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie (Mr. Symes):

That this House direct the Minister of Communications to forthwith intervene with the Canadian Transport Commission with respect to the pending application for an increase by B. C. Telephone to stop such consideration until a proper economic assessment is completed by the ministry into pricing practices of the B.C. Telephone with regard to related or associated companies and also an investigation be made into the amounts that have been paid by this corporation to its U.S. parent corporation.

ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS

SC

Léonel Beaudoin

Social Credit

Mr. Leonel Beaudoin (Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, under the terms of Standing Order 43, I request unanimous consent of the House to discuss a most urgent and important matter.

Because of the serious problems caused by asbestos fibre air pollution in the Thetford Mines area where, as early as 1949, at the time of the first strike in that sector, request was made to improve the situation but to no avail, and because of the serious problems created by data supplied by the CNTU and New York's Mount Sinai School of Medicine specialists, and all the more so because Thetford workers now on strike want their security guaranteed in this regard, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lotbiniere (Mr. Fortin):

That the House of Commons be allowed to discuss now this whole problem of asbestos fibre pollution, so that immediate steps can be taken in this regard, and that the federal Department of Environment assume as soon as possible its responsibility for setting up national standards by setting up a work schedule and the mechanism required to speed up the work of the research group in charge in the department.
