That this House urges the government to take note of the appeal of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada for a review of the decision to restrict the growth of Medical Research Council funds, it being the view of the society that it would be a crime against future generations of Canadians to interrupt research in Canada with respect to multiple sclerosis, heart disease, cancer and other ailments, and that this House urges the government to continue to provide the funds that are necessary for the maintenance of a high level of medical research in this country.

Mr. Elmer M. MacKay (Central Nova):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43 relating to a current problem affecting our national air carriers; in view of the fact that on March 4, 1975, the group vice-president, sales and service, Air Canada, Mr. Maurice D'Amours, and his counterpart from CP Air, Mr. H. B. Renwick, by a joint memorandum to all appointed travel agents emphatically warned of abuses in agency commission practices, and since I raised this matter in parliament on November 26, 1975, at which time the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Transport (Mr. Goodale) indicated he would draw this matter to the minister's attention, and in view of the fact that I have since received additional complaints that large amounts of money are still being improperly claimed by travel agents, to the detriment of the financial well-being of our major airlines, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Prince George-Peace River (Mr. Oberle):

That the Minister of Transport take immediate steps to investigate the situation with respect to improper commission over-ride charges and other matters relating to billing practices of travel agents, and the effects of these practices on our air lines, and report to the House before the end of this session.

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the fact, according to a survey conducted by the Canadian Press, food prices have kept increasing during the past month to the extent that bread has gone up again by 4 cents to 43 cents, and apples by 6 cents, from 27 to 33 cents a pound, and since also those foodstuffs are essential to all Canadians, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Champlain (Mr. Matte):

That the House instruct the government to look immediately into the possibility of establishing a compensated discount for consumer prices which would apply to all essential foodstuffs so that those who now cost too much be made available to all Canadians.

Lorne Edmund Nystrom (Whip of the N.D.P.)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. The President of the Privy Council (Mr. Sharp) has assured the House that Canada would contribute to the common commodity fund discussed at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. UNCTAD IV is over; however, the participants are to meet again to negotiate a common fund to stabilize prices of commodities in which the developing world is especially interested. Since many other nations are pledging specific amounts that they are prepared to contribute to the fund, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Greenwood (Mr. Brewin):

That this House direct the government to state the amount in dollars that we are prepared to contribute to the common fund.
