Mr. Andy Hogan (Cape Breton-East Richmond):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Considering the fact that today is International Women's Day and despite the fact that many years have passed since those female garment workers demonstrated for better working conditions, the economic status of women has not changed sufficiently, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Brant (Mr. Blackburn):
That the Minister of National Health and Welfare take steps to ensure that all working mothers have access to day care facilities, that the government accept the concept of equal pay for work of equal occupational status and further that the minister consider the proposal of wages for housework.
