PC

Walter David Baker (Official Opposition House Leader; Progressive Conservative Party House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Walter Baker (Grenville-Carleton):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion under Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the importance of a full and complete briefing for the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (Mr. Chretien) concerning the situation at Statistics Canada, particularly since the report in the Gazette this morning goes beyond his statement in the House yesterday, and since it is of the importance of the integrity of Statistics Canada, and to remove the shadow over public servants employed there, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):

That the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce institute a full ministerial inquiry into all of the facts and circumstances surrounding the alleged breaches of confidentiality at Statistics Canada and that he make a statement on motions at the earliest opportunity.

ATOMIC ENERGY CONTROL BOARD

NDP

John R. Rodriguez

New Democratic Party

Mr. John Rodriguez (Nickel Belt):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to ask the unanimous consent of the House to deal with a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Since a very serious situation concerning radioactive leaks has been disclosed in Elliot Lake, the Atomic Energy Control Board being determined to maintain tightlipped secrecy with respect to possible health hazards to residents of Elliot Lake, and since the citizens of the community have a right to know the measures which have been and will be taken to assess the situation, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie (Mr. Symes):

That the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources instruct the Atomic Energy Control Board to make its findings on the present situation public and also to call a full public inquiry as to the scope of the radiation hazard not only in the town of Elliot Lake, but also the surrounding district.
