ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE

PC

Jack Marshall

Progressive Conservative

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.

SUGGESTED CANCELLATION OF SALE OF NUCLEAR REACTOR TO ARGENTINA IN VIEW OF ALLEGATIONS OF BRIBERY-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

Francis Andrew Brewin

New Democratic Party

Mr. Andrew Brewin (Greenwood):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The government, through its Crown corporation Atomic Energy of Canada, has been engaged in sale of a nuclear reactor to the Argentine Atomic Energy Commission, not yet completed. It now appears that an Italian corporation, Italiampianti acting as some sort of partner of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, has paid bribes to two former Argentine cabinet ministers using Canadian public funds. In as much as this transaction was unprofitable to the tune of $25 million and involves possible nuclear proliferation to a country of notorious political instability and as there is now every reason to doubt its legality, I therefore move, seconded by the

hon. member for Nanaimo-Cowichan and The Islands (Mr. Douglas):

That the Canadian government be instructed to investigate this matter fully and if the facts turn out as alleged to cancel the deal and cease from further negotiations of the sale of the reactor forthwith.

HOUSING

SC

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to discuss a matter of pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that, according to Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation President William Teron, two thirds of the Canadians who require some housing cannot adequately do so; that, again according to Mr. Teron, the Canadian government is responsible for such a situation for having failed to develop housing construction; and that it is the duty of any government to improve as much as possible the standard of living of its people, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Champlain (Mr. Matte):

That the federal government, through the Department of Finance, take as soon as possible the necessary steps to allow the payment of mortgage interests paid by a taxpayer on its first house to be deductible from his personal income tax, thus making easier the purchase of a house, so that all Canadians may get suitable housing.

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

PC

John Carnell Crosbie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John Crosbie (St. John's West):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the statement made today by Dr. R. A. Bandeen of the CNR in St. John's, Newfoundland, that the company's railway operations in that province are expected to operate on the same basis as the rest of the company's rail business, with capital investment being financed on a commercial basis; that he could see no part of the Newfoundland rail system as capable of being operated on a commercial basis if rate levels are kept on the same basis as those on the mainland, and that the only way the railway could be expected to continue to run in Newfoundland was on the basis of combined subsidies and revenue, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That the Government of Canada ensure continued operation and improvement of the CN's rail services in Newfoundland through subsidies as necessary and that a Royal Commission not be appointed to study all aspects of transportation in Newfoundland as suggested by Mr. Bandeen unless assurance is given by the Government of Canada that:

1. there be no lay-offs in the interim.

2. that there be no change in the rail services offered nor in the quality of such services.

3. that the Government of Canada continue to act on matters such as financing of DREE roads and assistance for an improved Trans-Canada Highway and other transportation measures until such a Royal Commission reports.
