James Aloysius McGrath

Progressive Conservative

Mr. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to seek unanimous consent to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the alarming growth in the unemployment rate in Newfoundland as evidenced by figures released today by Statistics Canada showing a 1.5 per cent increase for the month of February, up sharply from the same time last year, giving the province a 15.1 per cent seasonally adjusted rate, which is twice the national average, or an actual rate of 17.4 per cent, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe (Mr. Marshall):

That the government immediately enter into an agreement with the government of Newfoundland to provide additional federal funding for job creation ventures.

PROPOSALS TO STUDY MEASURES TO REDUCE LEVEL OF UNEMPLOYMENT-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

David Samuel Horne MacDonald

Progressive Conservative

Mr. David MacDonald (Egmont):

Mr. Speaker, my motion is along similar lines but I hope because of its reasonable nature it will find general acceptance on all sides of the House. It relates to the fact that there are 59,000 more people unemployed this month than last and that out of the projected job creation in last year's budget of 250,000 jobs we have only created less than half, something like 112,000. In light of the announced intention of the government to bring down the budget on March 31,1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Dartmouth-Halifax East (Mr. Forrestall):

(1) That there be an immediate consultation with the provinces by a ministerial team composed of the Minister of Finance, Minister of Manpower and Immigration, President of Treasury Board, Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce and the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion prior to the final formulation of specific budget proposals.

(2) That the government make an immediate review of spending proposals in the 1977-78 estimates, with a view to redirecting them to areas of continued and growing unemployment, and

(3) That the government appoint immediately a special interdepartmental federal-provincial task force to work with the major sectors of the economy, particularly industry and labour, in order to achieve a sufficient set of measures to substantially reduce Canada's disastrous unemployment situation.

PENSION ACT

NDP

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

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, my motion relates to a different subject but one of equal seriousness and urgency. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe (Mr. Marshall):

That this House urges the Minister of Veterans Affairs to introduce the necessary amendments to the Pension Act so that the compensation for prisoners of war provided therein will apply to escapers and evaders, in accordance with representations made recently to the minister by the Canadian Branch of the Royal Air Forces Escaping Society, and also to the limited number of Canadian veterans still living who were prisoners of war during World War I, as recommended by the Standing Committee on Veterans Affairs in its report to the House on June 12, 1975.

SUGGESTED STUDY OF RECYCLING OLD OIL FROM VEHICLES- MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

A. Daniel McKenzie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg South Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the alarming reports in regard to the possibility of an energy shortage and taking into consideration that oil is a non-renewable resource but can be a reusable resource, I should like to move, seconded by the hon. member for Selkirk (Mr. Whiteway):

That this House instruct the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources to launch an immediate study in co-operation with the petroleum industry into methods of recovering, recycling and reusing old oil from all types of vehicles and that the results of this study be presented to the Standing Committee on National Resources and Public Works.

CANADIAN WHEAT BOARD

PC

Arnold John Malone

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Arnold Malone (Battle River):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. It being the case that there is presently a very high level of discontent and frustration felt by prairie grain producers as a result of the unexplainably low final payment for the crop year just completed, and in view of the fact that the Canadian Wheat Board, which came into being in 1935, has never been ad audited by the Auditor General of Canada, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Selkirk (Mr. Whiteway):

That this House recommends to the Auditor General that he do a complete and thorough audit of the Canadian Wheat Board in the next fiscal year.
