Mr. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. I do so in view of the statement by the Minister of Transport (Mr. Lang) on April 7, 1976 in which he admitted that "the marine search and rescue organization is no longer entirely adequate". In view of the fact that a departmental task force set up by the minister last spring has already submitted its report with specific recommendations, and further in view of the failure of the government to announce a new air/sea search and rescue policy for Canada, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe (Mr. Marshall):
That in the opinion of this House the government should give immediate consideration to referring the question of air/sea search and rescue in Canada to the Standing Committee on Transport and Communication.
Subtopic: SEARCH AND RESCUE
Sub-subtopic: PROPOSED REFERENCE OF SUBJECT TO STANDING COMMITTEE-MOTION UNDER S O. 43
