George Harris Hees

Progressive Conservative

Hon. George Hees (Prince Edward-Hastings):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion under Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. As it is essential that this country overcome its $11.5 billion a year trade deficit in manufactured goods and as this can only be done if we greatly increase our sales efforts abroad and let far more people in the world market know what this country has to offer, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Victoria-Haliburton (Mr. Scott):

That the government allow producers to write off 200 per cent of all expenses connected with making sales trips abroad, displaying their products at foreign trade fairs and any other expenses incurred in sales promotion in the export market and any other expenses incurred in sales promotion in the export market in excess of those made in the base year-the year before the plan goes into operation.

Such a program would greatly increase our sales effort in the export market-

SUGGESTION SYNCRUDE NOT INTERFERE WITH UNION

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

New Democratic Party

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Mr. Speaker, I, too, rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Workers being interviewed for jobs at Syncrude, which is partly owned by the federal government, are being told the plant will operate without unions. Since this appears to contravene the Alberta Labour Code and federal government labour policy, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House advise the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources to instruct Syncrude officials that they are not to interfere with normal union organisation within the plant.

PC

Gerald William Baldwin

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. W. Baldwin (Peace River):

Mr. Speaker, I have a motion under Standing Order 43. It deals with matters of urgent and pressing necessity arising from the need to obtain recommendations concerning legislation affecting government secrecy and clarifying issues of security and ministerial responsibility. I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Grenville-Carleton (Mr. Baker):

That the Green Paper on legislation on public access to government documents be referred to the Standing Joint Committee on Regulations and other Statutory Instruments.

SOCIAL SECURITY

SUGGESTION GUARANTEED ANNUAL INCOME BE ESTABLISHED AT POVERTY LINE-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

SC

Gérard Laprise

Social Credit

Mr. Gerard Laprise (Abitibi):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43,1 seek the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of extremely urgent and pressing necessity.

In March 1977, the Senate indicated that a single person with a $3,981 income was on the poverty line. Since old age security pensioners of single status are receiving only $261.06 a month or $3,132.72 year, which is $848.28 a year below the poverty line, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Belle-chasse (Mr. Lambert):

80027-5 314

December 16, 1977

Social Security

That the House urge the Minister of National Health and Welfare to increase the old age security pension, the guaranteed income supplement and the spouse's allowance, so that they may reach at least the poverty line.
