Otto John Jelinek

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Otto Jelinek (High Park-Humber Valley):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43 I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Today, October 14, is a sad day for democracy. In the continuing struggle for power by the minority of the labour force under the influence of a few union leaders-

James Alexander Jerome (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Liberal

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. I think I should once again caution hon. members about getting into preambles that constitute subjects of debate. A preamble to a motion pursuant to Standing Order 43 ought to be only sufficient, I would think, to establish the urgent nature of the matter, and not to get into argument.

Otto John Jelinek

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jelinek:

Mr. Speaker, in view of the fact that this day of protest by the Canadian Labour Congress is in fact deemed to be a general strike by a minority, illegal in many parts of the nation, and damaging not only to our economy but to the very essence of our democratic way of life, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Portage (Mr. Masniuk):

That the government take all necessary and appropriate disciplinary action against the instigators of this general strike, in particular Joe Morris, president of the CLC, and other top union officials.

ANTI-INFLATION PROGRAM SUGGESTED AMENDMENT OR ABOLITION OF PROGRAM-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

NDP

Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, this being labour's day of legitimate protest, I ask leave under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion of

urgent and pressing necessity. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North (Mr. Orlikow):

That this House urges the government to take immediate steps either to amend the controls program by providing effective checks on prices and profits or to abolish the program forthwith.

SUGGESTED REPLACEMENT OF PROGRAM WITH AN INCOMES PROGRAM-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

NDP

Stuart Malcolm Leggatt

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a similar motion. In view of the fact that the Anti-Inflation Board purports to restrict professional incomes and has failed to do so, with medical incomes increasing at a rate double that provided under the A IB, and incomes of the legal profession increasing similarly, and in view of the fact that 35 per cent of professional service firms have failed to report under the requirements of the AIB, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this controls program be abandoned in view of its patent unfairness and that such program be replaced by a meaningful incomes program which allows inflation fighting to be done by the rich as well as the poor.

James Alexander Jerome (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. Before receiving any further motion pursuant to Standing Order 43, I think I ought to indicate to the House that members might be reminded to examine the subject matter that is now being debated in the House. The motions that have so far been presented pursuant to Standing Order 43 would obviously be quite germane to the motion, and quite debatable pursuant to the terms of the amendment and sub-amendment now being considered by the House during the throne speech debate. I wonder if it is not simply a fiction to ask the House to set aside one motion under which these matters could be debated for the purpose of debating another one which is very similar in terms.
