Claude Wagner

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Claude Wagner (Saint-Hyacinthe):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion dealing with an important matter of national urgency.

Given the fact that under the new dairy policy Quebec industrial milk producers stand to lose over $100 million in income; that, by the Minister of Agriculture's own admission, producers have generally respected their quotas and are in no way responsible for the present surpluses, and that, consequently, those producers should not be penalized for an over-production to which they did not contribute, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Joliette (Mr. La Salle):

That the government accept the principle of a compensatory subsidy to those Quebec milk producers who, in the last dairy year, have respected their quotas, or that it exempt them from the pertinent provisions of its dairy policy; that, in addition, the government defer application of its new policy on the feed grains transport subsidy until such time as the producers concerned have been consulted and the new substitute programs promised by the government have been announced.

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Paul Yewchuk (Athabasca):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity. There have been consultations with all parties and I believe there is a

disposition to have this motion passed. I am informed that a decision concerning the mental health of Ukrainian historian, Valentyn Moroz, by officials at the Serbsky Institute of Forensic Psychiatry in Moscow is to be made on June 10, following which Mr. Moroz may be transferred to a psychiatric prison hospital. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hamilton West (Mr. Alexander):

That this House express the hope that cases such as that of Valentyn Moroz will be dealt with in accordance with the principles covering human rights and fundamental freedoms and other relevant principles in the Helsinki final act.

ORAL QUESTION PERIOD

Charles Joseph Clark (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Joe Clark (Leader of the Opposition):

Sir, my question is to the Minister of Supply and Services. I should like to ask the minister a question with regard to precisely when he personally became aware of the shortfall in financing of the proposed contract with Lockheed. His parliamentary secretary is on record as stating that the minister did not learn of this problem until January. The minister himself said it was in mid or late December. Having now had full opportunity to check the record, can the minister confirm that he was not informed of the funding shortfall until after the telex of December 2 to Lockheed?

Hon. Jean-Pierre Goyer (Minister of Supply and Services):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to make an essential distinction regarding the hon. member's question. Of course, I knew there was a cash flow problem at the Department of National Defence before December 2, but on

June 3, 1976

Oral Questions

December 2 they assured me that problem could be solved and the financing was assured; that is what prompted me to send the telex. However, it was not until the middle or the end of December that I learned that Lockheed was unable to supply the financing. If my parliamentary secretary said in his reply that it was in January, I apologize for it.
