Mr. Walter Baker (Grenville-Carleton):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity with regard to the scandalous precedent of the Minister of Supply and Services (Mr. Goyer) in his scurrilous attack on the Public Service of Canada. In light of the fact that cabinet as a whole knew and approved the LRPA purchase contract despite a significant shortfall on November 27, 1975, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Fundy-Royal (Mr. Fairweather):
That this House deplore the recent attack upon the integrity of the Public Service of Canada made by the Minister of Supply and Services and direct the cabinet to publicly assume the entire responsibility for the failure of the LRPA contract, as both honour and precedent dictate.
