Hon. E. F. Whelan (Minister of Agriculture):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing importance under Standing Order 43. I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That on this important day, March 17, we pay tribute to one of the greatest races of people in the world, the people who have contributed so much to the development of this country, who have not done it without suffering and so on, and that we long remember the contribution that they made and are still making to this country.

The people I refer to are the Irish.

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask the unanimous consent of the House to introduce a motion of urgent and pressing necessity. As a result of irresponsible action by the multinational ITT corporation, 107 men, many with long years of service have been made jobless with the closing of Ontario Malleable Iron in Oshawa. This action was taken without respect or concern for the employees or the community. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands (Mr. Douglas):

That the government introduce legislation requiring multinational corporations to give a minimum three months' notice in advance of a plant closure and be made responsible for protecting full pension benefits of employees with 20 years or more service.

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Statistics Canada has just reported that farm cash receipts have dropped by some 31 per cent this January over January of last year, and since this is only the first blow of what is shaping up as a devastating income year for the farmers of this country, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie:

That this House direct the government to announce programs to halt the continuing slide in farm income.

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, seconded by the hon. member for Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands (Mr. Douglas), I move:

That this House, noting the view expressed yesterday by the Prime Minister that one of the reasons we have more than a million unemployed persons is that Canadians are living beyond their means, invites the ime Minister to join the ranks of the unemployed or to live on the amount available to them as unemployment insurance for six months and then report to the House as to whether he still holds the view he expressed yesterday.

Mr. Speaker, I wish to move, under Standing Order 43, a motion on a matter of

urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that almost half of the Canadians without jobs are between the ages of 15 and 24, and that in another two months several hundred thousand students will also face a hopeless search for summer employment, and in view of the fact that the unemployment rate for the 15 to 24 age group is now 14.4 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis-more than 2.5 times the unemployment rate for those 25 years of age, and in view of the fact that the severity and chronic nature of the youth unemployment problem in Canada, as well as its long-term effects, make it economically, and socially explosive, I would like to move seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre:

That this House urges the government to initiate substantial job creation programs oriented towards the youth in Canada.
