HEALTH AND WELFARE

PC

Paul Yewchuk

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Paul Yewchuk (Athabasca):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgency which affects the future of vaccine production in emergency epidemic situations in this country.

In view of the fact that Connaught laboratories supplied the Department of National Health and Welfare with 12 million doses of swine influenza vaccine during the expected countrywide influenza epidemic in 1976, and in view of the fact that the Department of National Health and Welfare now refuses to pay for the final two million doses of influenza serum and is facing a lawsuit by Connaught Laboratories for a claim of $2.5 million, plus interest, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Simcoe North (Mr. Rynard):

That the Minister of National Health and Welfare make a statement on motions to explain why her department refuses to pay Connaught Laboratories for the two million doses of vaccine, and in not doing so has broken a link of mutual trust with a vital source of vaccine and is thereby endangering the lives of Canadians in the event of another national epidemic emergency.

Roch La Salle

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Roch La Salle (Joliette):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with an urgent matter.

Considering that the bill introduced by the Minister of Finance (Mr. Chretien) concerning the refund of the $186 million owed by the federal government to the lawful Quebec government is an arbitrary gesture, a dangerous precedent and a constitutional hurdle; considering that the suggested formula ignores the unanimous desire voiced by all parties at the provincial legislature and the wish expressed by leaders to hold direct negotiations between governments; considering that the bill would frustrate over 300,000 citizens of that province who do not pay any federal tax and consequently will not get any compensation to which they are as much entitled as are all other Quebec and Canadian taxpayers, 1 moved, seconded by the hon. member for Brome-Missisquoi (Mr. Grafftey):

That the House unanimously urge the Minister of Finance (Mr. Chretien) to withdraw immediately that unfair bill which does not meet the objectives aimed at in his budget and could forever jeopardize relations between Ottawa and Quebec.

John Edward Broadbent

New Democratic Party

Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that the report of the Royal Commission on Corporate Concentration constitutes a $3 million whitewash of the problems associated with the concentration of corporate power, problems which have now been recognized by most other industrial countries, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House urges the government to consider seriously applying the Minister of Transport's user-pay principle and regain from large corporations in Canada the $3 million misspent in producing this slick advertising propoganda on their behalf.

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ray Hnatyshyn (Saskatoon-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Whereas the people of Canada have a right to know the true rate of inflation in Canada, and whereas the government appears to be hiding behind a temporary artificial drop in the consumer price index, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That this House request that the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce direct Statistics Canada to publish data showing the rate of inflation without the sales tax cuts, which is the rate voters will experience after the fall election.
