Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dean Whiteway (Selkirk):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that the committee on the green paper continues to have its hearings disrupted, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That the Minister of Manpower and Immigration immediately instruct the chairman of that committee to take steps that will assure all groups wishing to make presentations an opportunity to do so in an orderly and civil manner.

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, I think it should be noted by the House and the hon. member that this joint committee is a committee of parliament, a committee of this chamber and of the Senate, and would not be subject to instruction by me to the chairman or anybody else.

U410) ORAL QUESTION PERIOD THE CANADIAN ECONOMY INFLATION-DATE OF FINAL ASSESSMENT OF PROGRAM TO ACHIEVE CONSENSUS ON RESTRAINT

PC

Robert Lorne Stanfield (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

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

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Finance arising from the rather depressing figures released concerning the gross national product and adverse trading balance, revealing a situation which took place while the minister was away, and I am sure would not have happened had he not had to leave the country for awhile. In view of this, I should like to ask how his consensus program is percolating along and whether he can give us a firm assurance now that he will be presenting us with a definite and final assessment of this consensus program on restraints when he brings down his budget?

DATE OF PUBLICATION OF FIGURES SHOWING EFFECT ON COMPETITIVE POSITION OF EXCESSIVE WAGE INCREASES- KNOWLEDGE OF MINISTER OF LABOUR OF FIGURES

PC

Robert Lorne Stanfield (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

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

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the minister when he is going to publish his figures and analyses relating to the so-called myth that Canadian wage and salary increases are nearly double those in the United States, and that this seriously impedes our competitive position in respect of major goals? In view of the Minister of Labour having described the view of the Minister of Finance as a myth in the House on May 27, when will the Minister of Finance publish these figures and these analyses?

Robert Lorne Stanfield (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Mr. Stanfield:

Mr. Speaker, did the Minister of Finance show the Minister of Labour these figures and analyses before they journeyed together to discuss the consensus program with the leaders of the labour movement in Canada, and, even more particularly, did he show the Minister of Labour these figures and analyses before that minister made his attack on the Minister of Finance in the House on May 27?

INFLATION-MINISTER'S VIEW OF URGENCY OF VOLUNTARY PRICE AND WAGE RESTRAINTS-REASON FOR LACK OF ACCURACY IN FORECAST OF GROWTH

PC

Sinclair McKnight Stevens

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Sinclair Stevens (York-Simcoe):

Mr. Speaker, now that the revised figures show that the real gross national product has decreased 2 per cent in the last 12 months while inflation has continued relatively unabated, will the Minister of Finance indicate whether he believes that a voluntary program of wage and price restraint is even more urgent today than when the task first began to arrive at a consensus?
