Mr. Lincoln M. Alexander (Hamilton West):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The Minister of Manpower and Immigration having stated in the House on Friday last that figures released by Statistics Canada regarding job vacancies are misleading, and having stated further, outside the House shortly thereafter, that such figures are useless and ought to be looked at with a jaundiced eye, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Perth-Wilmot (Mr. Jarvis):
That this House direct the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce to investigate the serious charges made by the Minister of Manpower and Immigration and thereafter report to the House on motions.
Subtopic: STATISTICS CANADA
Sub-subtopic: SUGGESTED INVESTIGATION OF ALLEGATION JOB VACANCY FIGURES MISLEADING-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
