ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

FINANCE

PC

Sinclair McKnight Stevens

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Sinclair Stevens (York-Simcoe):

Mr. Speaker, I ask leave to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. As the Minister of Finance flits from Washington, the capital of the United States of America, to New York, the financial capital of that country, picking up instructions, suggestions and possible options for his forthcoming budget, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Northumberland-Durham (Mr. Lawrence):

That this House request the minister upon his return to make a statement on motions setting out what economic alternatives he has been given with respect to his forthcoming budget so that the House may be fully informed of our background position with particular reference to our relationship to the U.S.A.

FEDERAL-PROVINCIAL RELATIONS REQUEST THAT ROLE OF COMMITTEE FOR CANADIAN UNITY BE SPECIFIED-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

?

Mr. Ren@

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to introduce an important motion of pressing necessity.

In view of the existing ambiguity concerning the national unity committee within federal-provincial relations office, since that special section could merely become a political organization to promote the Liberal party and since we have no specific definition of national unity and therefore the role of the organization could be distorted, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) be asked to table in the House the essential papers providing clear and specific information on the role of that section for Canadian unity whose direction has been entrusted with Mr. Paul Tellier.

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cape Breton-The Sydneys (Mr. Muir):

That this House desires that arrangements be made for Her Gracious Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of Canada either to prorogue the present session or to give the Speech from the Throne for a new session later in 1977 when she will be attending events in celebration of her twenty-fifth anniversary on the Throne.
