Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):
Mr. Speaker, under Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity.
In view of the fact that the Canadian people have been paying a prohibitive price for sugar in the past year, that the price of this product sold in Canada has dropped sharply in the last few weeks, and that the public is again concerned about a further price increase, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Shefford (Mr. Rondeau):
That this House urge the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (Mr. Gillespie) and the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs (Mr. Ouellet) to look fully into the sugar trade and report to the House whether an increase in the price of sugar is justified.
