Mr. Leonel Beaudoin (Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request unanimous consent of the House to present a motion on an important and urgent matter.

In view of the increasingly obvious need for adopting clear and specific policies on the food sector which will again be affected this year by considerably higher costs and so affect Canadian consumers as well, and as the farming sector is up against certain difficulties including, for instance, an expected much lower farm income for the year in spite of relentlessly higher production costs, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That this House now study the recommendation made recently by the Food Prices Review Board for setting up at provincial and federal government levels a food ministry entrusted with the formulation of a coherent food policy, and that this House analyze any proposal of similar nature capable of ensuring balance between food production and food consumption, thus sparing all Canadians, producers and consumers, the consequences of the lack of planning in that sphere.
