ELECTIONS

PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, to move:

That, without further delay, in view of the Gallup poll of today's date which indicates that the Trudeau government is on the way out, this House calls upon the right hon. Prime Minister, having lost the confidence and support of the Canadian people, to put an end at once to the uncertainty and secure the consent of His Excellency the Governor General of Canada to immediate dissolution of this House so that the people of Canada can elect a government without delay which will meet the tremendous economic problems that exist and face this country.

PC

Walter Gilbert Dinsdale

Progressive Conservative

Hon. W. G. Dinsdale (Brandon-Souris):

Mr. Speaker, under the terms of Standing Order 43 I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that the long drawn-out contract negotiations between the government and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers are reaching a critical stage, and the Postmaster General is not involved in the discussions, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Parry Sound-Muskoka (Mr. Darling):

That the Postmaster General participate in the current critical contract negotiations with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers through the established procedures of the conciliation board rather than by statements to the press.

NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL

PROPOSED INQUIRY INTO ALLEGED IRREGULARITIES

SC

Léonel Beaudoin

Social Credit

Mr. Lionel Beaudoin (Richmond):

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

In view of the many criticisms which have been levelled against the National Research Council of Canada, which is said to discriminate against Quebec research workers, with the result that the province of Quebec is not likely to receive its fair share of the research grants, and in view of the series of irregularities which today's edition of Le Devoir has published concerning the appointment of the selection committee, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):

That the House urge the minister responsible for the National Research Council of Canada to investigate these alleged irregularities and report to the House so that the Canadian public at large may know the whole truth about this matter.
