ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS


[English ]


MANPOWER

PC

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity concerning the Department of Manpower and Immigration in the city of Toronto and, in particular, the activities of an employee of that department, Mr. Frank Horsefield. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That the Minister of Manpower and Immigration conduct an immediate investigation of Canada Manpower division office located at 200 Jarvis Street, Toronto with particular reference to the activities of Mr. Frank Horsefield who has been indicted and bound over for trial as a result of investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on five counts of forgery and five counts of taking moneys involving those without landed immigrant status with approximately 30 witnesses to be subpoenaed by the prosecution and specifically that the minister advise the House why this individual, pending the taking place of the customary legal process, instead of being suspended or transferred to duties unconnected with Manpower and Immigration, has instead been appointed to a position as a supervisor located at the Canada Manpower and Immigration regional office, 2180 Yonge Street, Toronto.

ANTI-INFLATION BOARD PROPOSED CLARIFICATION OF INTERPRETATION OF PROVISION RELATING TO HISTORICAL RELATIONSHIP-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

NDP

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The matter of urgent and pressing necessity arises from the cabinet's overturning of the Anti-Inflation Board's decision on the postal workers contract and in particular the board's complete distortion of the purpose of "historical relationship" as found on page 23 of the white paper on inflation. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House instructs the government to ensure that regulations pertaining to historical relationships between groups of workers relate to what is said in the white paper on this subject and not to what was decided by the Anti-Inflation Board and published in its communique of November 7.

THE CANADIAN ECONOMY

SC

Armand Caouette

Social Credit

Mr. Armand Caouette (Villeneuve):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to introduce a motion dealing with an important issue.

Since social stability in Canada is deeply undermined by some anti-inflation government measures rejected by the workers who have no confidence in the government statements on price controls, and since it is urgent not only to control but to reduce prices to enable consumers to buy available products, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Abitibi (Mr. Laprise):

That this House consider as soon as possible the opportunity of applying a compensated discount to consumer prices, which discount would cover all essential products and would be based on the difference between purchasing power and production value, thereby ending inflation.

PROPOSAL TO ESTABLISH ASBESTOS-RELATED DISEASES PROTECTION BUREAU-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I ask leave to present a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of recent evidence concerning the alarming number of deaths of workers due to asbestos-related diseases, I ask leave to move, seconded by the hon. member for Timiskaming (Mr. Peters):

That the government consider the immediate establishment in the Department of National Health and Welfare of an asbestos-related diseases protection bureau similar in purpose to the already existing radiation protection bureau and that the government be urged to place before the ongoing conference of deputy ministers of health the proposal that uniform exposure standards for asbestos fibres be made a high priority for federal-provincial negotiations.
