Mr. Heath Macquarrie (Hillsborough):
Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I wish to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In fairness to hon. members, I should indicate that I have taken the advice of and consulted with my hon. friend, the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. MacEachen). I move, seconded by the hon. member for Esquimalt-Saanich (Mr. Munro):
That this House views with concern and anxiety the continuation of armed conflict in Angola and deplores the military involvement of foreign powers in that country. Further, that this House urges the withdrawal from Angola of all foreign combatants and military technicians engaged in the warfare, calls for the cessation of arms shipments to all fighting forces and urges the three major Angola political groups-the MPLA, FNLA and UNITA to desist from armed combat and proceed toward a mutually agreed-upon peace settlement. Finally, that the government be requested to convey these sentiments of this House to the Secretary General of the United Nations.
Subtopic: MOTION URGING WITHDRAWAL OF FOREIGN FORCES AND POLITICAL SETTLEMENT IN ANGOLA-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
