ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

FISHERIES

PC

Jack Marshall

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Jack Marshall (Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. The Department of Fisheries and the Environment has not rehired approximately 50 per cent of the 163 river guardians employed on the salmon rivers in Newfoundland, resulting in the loss of 80 jobs. The increase in poaching on these rivers with fewer guardians will have a very serious effect on the salmon stocks in Newfoundland's rivers and makes a complete mockery of Canada's conservation measures. Therefore, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's West (Mr. Crosbie):

That this House direct the Minister of Fisheries and the Environment to authorize the immediate reinstatement of last year's allotment for river guardians in Newfoundland, and that the matter be referred to the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Forestry.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST

NDP

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

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, 1 ask leave, seconded by the hon. member for Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands (Mr. Douglas), to move:

That this House, noting that the Minister of National Health and Welfare enjoyed a free flight in a Seagram's aircraft, that the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs did the same in an aircraft owned by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, and that the Minister of Transport has now flown free in a Nordair Aircraft so he could make a speech calling for the user to pay, is concerned over the conflict of interest involved in such flights, but is also of the view that all cabinet ministers should be treated equally, and this House therefore expresses the hope that some other private airline will offer a free trip

by air to all members of the cabinet, anywhere in the world they want to go, one way.

SC

Armand Caouette

Social Credit

Mr. Armand Caouette (Villeneuve):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the terms of Standing Order 43, I wish to put a motion dealing with an urgent matter on which I am convinced the House will be unanimous.

As the sub-committee on our penitentiary system has done a terrific job in the last few months with a view to making concrete recommendations to improve our penal system, and as the report brought down by that sub-committee is a document of superior quality, which all hon. member will recognize, though unanimous consent may not have been reached on some of its recommendations, and moreover as this report is a unique example of the cooperation of hon. members of all political parties, devoid of partisan considerations, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That the House warmly congratulate hon. members of the sub-committee on the penitentiary system for the magnificent task they performed by cooperating without partisan bias, and also for the outstanding report they tabled in the House yesterday.
