Mr. Leonel Beaudoin (Richmond):
Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion dealing with an urgent and important matter.
In view of the fact that the Quebec textile industry is increasingly threatened and urgently needs some correctives to restore a satisfactory economic stability, that most of its problems are due to rising imports and that the industry is comparatively isolated from the remainder of the Canadian economy, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):
That this House immediately discuss the condition of our textile industry to provide new policies liable to protect employment and assure Canadian markets and to consider the effectiveness of the suggestion made during the weekend by the Confederation of National Trade Unions for the establishment of the Textile and Clothing Board on a permanent basis.
Sub-subtopic: REQUEST FOR NEW POLICIES TO PROTECT TEXTILE PRODUCERS-MOTION UNDER S O. 43
