ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

AIR TRANSPORT

PC

Donald Frank Mazankowski

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Don Mazankowski (Vegreville):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In light of quoted statements from a report prepared by two investigators for the Department of Transport alleging that enforcement of air regulations is at times subject to political pressure and also, in light of the fact that the Director of the Aeronautical Licensing and Inspection Branch of Transport Canada has made reference to the possibility of embarrassment to the minister and other political implications as a result of enforcing air regulations, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lisgar (Mr. Murta):

That this House urge the Minister of Transport to refer this matter of political interference and its impact on air safety in Canada to the Standing Committee on Transport and Communications and furthermore, that William Slaughter, Andrew Carswell and R. L. Bolduc be allowed to testify and elaborate on their statements.

PC

Albert C. (Bert) Cadieu

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bert Cadieu (Meadow Lake):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing importance. Can the Minister of Transport explain to the House why he failed to invite the National Farmers Union and other interested parties to the meeting held yesterday in Saskatoon? These groups are very much concerned with the development of the Port of Churchill and the rail authority because of abandonment of certain rail lines, and should not have been

excluded. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Dauphin (Mr. Ritchie):

That the minister arrange to meet with these groups of concerned people.

WHEAT-REQUEST FOR INCREASE IN DOMESTIC PRICE-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

Lorne Edmund Nystrom (Whip of the N.D.P.)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Mr. Speaker, I also have a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43. It is several months since the government promised an increase in the price of domestic wheat, an increase which has become crucial because of rising production costs. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House instruct the government to move immediately to raise the floor price of wheat sold for domestic consumption to $4 per bushel from the existing $3.25 per bushel.

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

PC

Thomas Charles Cossitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of pressing necessity pertaining to a statement made outside the House to an Ottawa newspaper by the Minister of Employment and Immigration, with reference to a question asked in the House by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie) on the subject of the so-called Unemployment Insurance Commission internal fraud squad, namely, that it had not been disbanded but "merely reorganized and it is ever vigilant". I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That the minister explain to the House, in view of this statement on Tuesday, why he answered question number 2765 in my name on the order paper on August 4, 1977, by categorically denying that the Unemployment Insurance Commission has a fraud squad and that he also advise whether Mr. Hi Pong No,

AGRICULTURE

PC

John Wise

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John Wise (Elgin):

I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Since the Minister of Agriculture refuses to give any firm commitment that Canada's agricultural interest will not be traded off at the present GATT negotiations and consequently the real threat and possibility of further erosion remains not only to the primary producers but also to the food processors in the form of reduced revenue and the loss of jobs, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Northumberland-Durham (Mr. Lawrence):

That the government House leader give immediate approval to a reference of the Tariff Board report to the Standing Committee on Agriculture, thus giving industry people an opportunity for further consultation and input, bearing in mind that the Standing Committee on Agriculture has absolutely no legislation or order of business to consider.
