Mr. Jack Marshall (Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe):
Speaker, 1 wish to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. A statement made by the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Cullen) on the CTV program Question Period" indicated that the development of the Gull Island site in Newfoundland is the type of project that could provide long-term employment. This is worthy of serious and urgent consideration since such a development would assure benefits to not only the Atlantic region but to Canada in added energy resources. I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John s East (Mr. McGrath):
That the development of the lower Churchill hydro project be placed on the agenda for the federal-provincial conference on the economy in mid-February as a matter of priority.
Subtopic: SUGGESTION LOWER CHURCHILL FALLS PROJECT BE DISCUSSED AT FEDERAL-PROVINCIAL CONFERENCE-MOTION UNDER S O. 43
