Mr. Jack Marshall (Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe):
Mr. Speaker, I wish to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgency. The case against one Brian Davies, who was charged with violations of the Fisheries Act during the seal fishery last year, was ruled by the Newfoundland court as outside their jurisdiction. The results of this decision prompts action by the federal government. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):
That this House orders that the government investigate the circumstances and that they lay charges in the appropriate court regarding this deliberate attempt to cause destruction of the seal fishery of Newfoundland.
Subtopic: ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE
Sub-subtopic: REQUEST THAT CHARGES BE LAID AGAINST BRIAN DAVIES FOR DISRUPTION OF SEAL FISHERY-MOTION UNDER S O. 43
