Mr. J. M. Forrestall (Dartmouth-Halifax East):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 for the purpose of proposing a motion of urgent and pressing importance. In order to stabilize the economic and social situation which has so rapidly deteriorated in the Trenton area of Nova Scotia as a direct result of declining employment levels at the Hawker Siddeley plant, in excess of 1,000 to date with an additional 300 to come soon and 1,300 directly related jobs, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay):
That this House instruct the government to issue advance rail car orders which will be required by our national transportation systems within the next two years and further that the social services funds required to accommodate the 2,300 unemployed be immediately directed to this program.
