Mr. Jack Murta (Lisgar):
Mr. Speaker, I request the unanimous consent of the House to propose a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, that matter being the apparent decision by the Minister of Agriculture to restrict in the next few weeks the importation of agricultural herbicides and pesticides from the United States. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Medicine Hat (Mr. Hargrave):
That the restriction be on a selective basis, not include the more commonly used products, and that the chemical companies involved appear before the Standing Committee on Agriculture to explain their position on this most important matter.
Sub-subtopic: PROPOSED RESTRICTION OF IMPORTATION OF HERBICIDES AND PESTICIDES FROM UNITED STATES-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
