Mr. Paul Yewchuk (Athabasca):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the partial ban placed on the use of sodium nitrates in bacon by the United States government because of the possible carcinogenic property of nitrosamines, and in view of the usual unwillingness of this government to state its position, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lambton-Kent (Mr. Holmes):
That the Minister of National Health and Welfare state on motions whether she plans any changes in the use of nitrosamines which many believe pose a threat to the health of Canadians.
Subtopic: HEALTH AND WELFARE
Sub-subtopic: USE OF NITROSAMINES IN FOOD PRODUCTS-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
