PC

Sinclair McKnight Stevens

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Sinclair Stevens (York-Simcoe):

Mr. Speaker, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Whereas recently released figures show the government spent in a few days nearly $803 million of our U.S. dollar reserves supporting the falling Canadian dollar, but those figures do not include the final day of transactions in November, net future forward positions and the impact of our chartered banks losing $925 million in their net foreign currency assets in recent weeks, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Hnatyshyn):

That this House request the Minister of Finance to table the day to day exchange fund deliveries for the month of November and the first ten days of December, for which there is a precedent in that on October 18, 1962 this House ordered such a tabling pursuant to the motion of John N. Turner, a subsequent Minister of Finance, following a dollar decline of minor importance in terms of reserve spending compared to our reserve outflow of recent weeks.

Thomas Clement (Tommy) Douglas

New Democratic Party

Mr. T. C. Douglas (Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity.

In light of the difficulties currently being experienced by the Standing Committee on Public Accounts in investigating the events surrounding the sale of nuclear reactors to South Korea and Argentina, and in light of the fact that much of this

difficulty arises from the unwillingness of the government to provide the committee with adequate documentation with regard to these events, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That the government be instructed to transmit to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts as soon as possible the minutes of AECL meetings of the directors at which these sales were discussed; copies of all contracts and correspondence between AECL and Shaul Eisenberg or any of his companies; all contracts signed for the sale of such reactors to date; and all correspondence between AECL and its Italian partner in the sale of a nuclear reactor to Argentina.

INDIAN AFFAIRS

PC

Jack Burnett Murta

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jack Murta (Lisgar):

Mr. Speaker, I also rise under Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Because of the uncertainty surrounding a posh hunting and fishing lodge 250 miles north of Winnipeg built with federal government money, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Provencher (Mr. Epp):

That a full investigation as to the funding, the reasons for the lodge itself and a possible conflict of interest be started into the $450,000 Thunderbird Lodge.

Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, my motion, which I ask leave to present under Standing Order 43, is based on a candid statement attributed to an aide to the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau), who is quoted as having said, "There is only one criterion for appointing senators; they have to be friends of the Prime Minister."
