ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

OLYMPIC GAMES

PC

Roch La Salle

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Roch La Salle (Joliette):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion.

Given the undertaking made by the government in the Speech from the Throne to give additional assistance to Canadian athletes, and considering the answer given yesterday by the minister responsible, who apparently considers reasonable to earmark for that purpose a meagre 5 per cent of Loto Canada revenue, considering also the unavoidable responsibility of the government to provide the necessary support for training the athletes who will represent our country at the next Olympic Games in Moscow, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Hochelaga (Mr. Lavoie):

That the House unanimously recommend to the minister that a special and sufficient fund be created as soon as possible to ensure that our country be represented in Moscow by a delegation which will deserve our pride and will be a logical continuation of the recent Olympic Games in Montreal.

INCOME TAX

Max Saltsman

New Democratic Party

Mr. Max Saltsman (Waterloo-Cambridge):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 regarding a pressing and urgent matter, namely a report that the Minister of Finance (Mr. Macdonald) at the closed meeting of the First

Ministers indicated that the 1976 surtax on higher income earners, which was brought in as part of the government's anti-inflationary effort, will not be continued. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North (Mr. Orlikow):

That this House condemns the removal of the surtax on higher income earners.

AGRICULTURE

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 rather important matter.

Considering that, according to the Canadian Institute of Agriculture, Canada is on the verge of losing its place among the great food exporting countries of the world; that our country has all essential factors to undertake a serious program of research and development in agriculture; that programs of agricultural research and development are seriously affected by the lack of funds; and that it is a sector as important as energy or transport, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That the House take as soon as possible every necessary step to intensify the programs of agricultural development and research in Canada.
