Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):
Mr. Speaker, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie) I should like to move, under the provisions of Standing Order 43:
That the government give immediate explanation of the discrepancy between the answer to order paper question No. 50, stating the cost of the Minister of Transport's air travel at public expense to be $742,000 and the minister's subsequent claim that the actual expense was only $442,000; and that if the minister is incorrect he resign from the cabinet for gross misrepresentation.
Sub-subtopic: ALLEGED DISCREPANCY BETWEEN MINISTER'S STATEMENT OF COST OF AIR TRAVEL AND GOVERNMENT ANSWER-MOTION UNDER S O. 43
