GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION

PC

Gerald William Baldwin

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. W. Baldwin (Peace River):

Mr. Speaker, I propose to move a motion under this most useful of standing orders, Standing Order 43, which has to do with a matter of urgent and pressing necessity arising out of the collusive arrangements, which can best be described as a mutual concealment pact, made between the Attorney General of Canada and the attorney general of the United States, dated March 15, 1977.

Gerald William Baldwin

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Baldwin:

I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Hnatyshyn):

That this House demands that the government explain fully the circumstances leading to this imprudent and dangerous agreement and, furthermore, on the basis that parliament has the primary responsibility to inquire into the proper expenditure of taxpayers' money for the purchase of aircraft and supplies from Boeing Aircraft, that the agreement of March 15 and related circumstances be referred to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts.

HOUSING

NDP

John Gilbert

New Democratic Party

Mr. John Gilbert (Broadview):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to move, under Standing Order 43, a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the serious human misery and economic waste associated with the high unemployment level in all regions of this country, the tremendous need for low-income housing evidenced by long waiting lists in the urban centres of Canada, and the fact that the most recently available official statistics show that over 155,000

construction workers are unemployed, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Greenwood (Mr. Brewin):

That this House urges the government, in the joint interests of creating employment and assisting low-income Canadians in their housing difficulties, to reverse the policy of Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation, as announced yesterday, and increase, not decrease, financial housing support for low-income Canadians.

Charles-Arthur Gauthier

Social Credit

Mr. C. A. Gauthier (Roberval):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that Canada has the highest unemployment rate of its history, as there are over a million unemployed; that in the long run such conditions will only worsen unless we reject the entire modern technology; that owing to that technology it is increasingly utopian to think about full employment without going 50 years back, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bellechasse (Mr. Lambert):

That this House urge the government to introduce immediately a bill to establish a guaranteed minimum annual income for all citizens from 18 to 65 years of age.
