ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

PROPOSED SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDER RELATING TO PRIVATE MEMBERS' HOUR-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

Walter David Baker (Deputy House Leader of the Official Opposition; Progressive Conservative Party Deputy House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Walter Baker (Grenville-Carleton):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Under the terms of Standing Order 15(6) private members' hour on Mondays and Tuesdays is suspended after being reached 40 times. Since this session has been prolonged abnormally, private members now have at their disposal a much smaller proportion of our time than our rules intended. To correct this situation I would move, with unanimous consent, seconded by the hon. member for Malpeque (Mr. MacLean):

That beginning on March 1, 1976, and for the remainder of the session, Standing Order 15(6) be suspended.

Léonel Beaudoin

Social Credit

Mr. Leonel Beaudoin (Richmond):

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

Since the economy of the Eastern Townships, in Quebec, depends largely on the textile and clothing industry that provides 32.5 per cent of the jobs in that area, but is now experiencing a serious recession, and in view of the fact that the CSD, Centrale des syndicats democratiques, has just published a report indicating that unemployment in the area could reach 10.6 per cent by the end of April, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That this House now discuss the Canadian tariff policy and its impact on employment and investments in the textile industry, in order to take as soon as possible the necessary steps to support this industry

and ensure that new industrial sectors will be able to absorb the surplus manpower from the textile sector.

Mr. Jacques Guilbault (Saint-Jacques):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request unanimous consent of the House to present a motion on a matter of national interest and of pressing public importance.

In view of the obvious inadequacies in the television coverage of the recent leadership convention of the Progressive Conservative Party by the CBC French network, and more particularly in view of the fact that this network did not broadcast in their entirety, as did the English network, the speeches of the candidates, I move, seconded by the hon. members for Lafontaine-Rosemont (Mr. Lachance) and for Laval (Mr. Roy):

That this matter be referred to the Standing Committee on Broadcasting, Films and Assistance to the Arts, so that the management of CBC can be heard.

J. Michael Forrestall

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. M. Forrestall (Dartmouth-Halifax East):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the concern expressed by the president of the Union of National Defence employees with respect to base closures in the maritime provinces, particularly CFB Shearwater and CFB Greenwood, and the enormously disastrous effect this would have on the Annapolis Valley and the metropolitan area of Dartmouth and Halifax in economic terms, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Annapolis Valley (Mr. Nowlan):

That the Minister of National Defence not later than Thursday of this week undertake on motions to give to this House, the provincial and municipal authorities involved, the fullest explanation respecting the status of any base closure plans, and to reiterate the firm assurances given by previous Ministers of National Defence and himself that no base closures will take place without the fullest consultation with these officials and this parliament.
