Mr. Paul Yewchuk (Athabasca):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that in response to a question I put to him on October 28 as recorded in Hansard at page 540, the Prime Minister told this House that during his visit to Japan he had conducted no negotiations with the Japanese concerning possible Japanese investment in the Athabasca tar sands; and in view of the fact that the very next day in response to another question as recorded in Hansard at page 549, the Prime Minister told the House that he had tried to interest the Japanese in the "continuing development of the tar sands" I move, seconded by the hon. member for Burnaby-Richmond-Delta (Mr. Reynolds):
That the right hon. gentleman explain to the satisfaction of this House, on motions, the discrepancy between his two remarks.
