Mr. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. My motion is prompted by figures contained in the consumer price index released today which show a further increase in the price of housing in Canada making for an over-all yearly increase of 11.5 per cent, the highest yearly increase in the history of this country since records have been kept of housing statistics. I would therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Kingston and the Islands (Miss MacDonald):
That the Minister of State for Urban Affairs immediately convene a federal provincial housing conference.
Sub-subtopic: REQUEST FOR FEDERAL-PROVINCIAL HOUSING CONFERENCE-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
