ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

PC

Steve Eugene Paproski

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Steven E. Paproski (Edmonton Centre):

Mr. Speaker, 1 rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. My motion concerns the over 30 years that the peoples of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania have been victims of Soviet imperialism. In view of the fact, despite the rhetoric of detente, that hundreds of thousands of individuals are today the victims of Soviet political concentration camps, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Grenville-Carleton (Mr. Baker):

That this House condemns Soviet aggression and, further, that this House supports the legitimate aspirations of the Latvian, Estonian and Lithuanian peoples for the freedoms which ought to be the birthright of every human being.

NATIONAL UNITY

SUGGESTION PRIME MINISTER REFRAIN FROM MAKING

PC

Stanley Kenneth Schellenberger

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Stan Schellenberger (Wetaskiwin):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43. Since the Prime Minister's recent declarations that the opening of mail caused the apprehension of a terrorist, and his further assurances in respect of the bugging of offices of members of parliament during his term of office are, to put it charitably, now open to question, and keeping in mind that on various occasions he has assured the country that separatism is dead, unemployment licked and inflation wrestled to the ground, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Red Deer (Mr. Towers):

That the Prime Minister refrain from any further predictions or assurances and continues the only role at which he seems to have any success-as chief Liberal "snollygoster".

THE CANADIAN ECONOMY

ALLEGED MISLEADING STATEMENTS BY MINISTER OF FINANCE-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

NDP

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion under Standing Order 43 regarding a specific and important matter. The Minister of Finance, in Montreal in a speech to the Canadian Club, stated: "The fundamental news at this time, of course, is that Canada's economic recovery is gaining momentum". He also said: "Economic growth in the fourth quarter of 1977 was at or above the long-term potential rate for the economy". Finally, he said: "The outlook for investment is improving". The Statistics Canada report issued on Friday, and the one yesterday, contradict everything the minister said. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

In view of the fact that the minister's department received this information from Statistics Canada well before he gave his speech in Montreal, that this House of Commons condemns the Minister of Finance for his deliberately misleading and erroneous statements on the Canadian economy.

REQUESTED INCREASE IN TARIFFS ON TEXTILES-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

SC

Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 and I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion dealing with a matter of utmost importance and urgency.

Since the textile industry in Canada is in a very delicate situation due to lack of strict controls over imports, and since this forces companies to cut down considerably on production, which leads to many workers being laid off, especially in the

province of Quebec, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Abitibi (Mr. Laprise):

That the House recommend that the import tariffs be increased in order at least to save what is left of this important industry.
