Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. My motion concerns the refusal of this government to bring before parliament all aspects pertaining to the state takeover of Pacific Petroleums by Petro-Canada.
I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for North-umberland-Durham (Mr. Lawrence):
That the annual report of Petro-Canada, together with the subject matter of the takeover of Pacific Petroleums, be referred immediately to the Standing Committee on National Resources and Public Works,
Subtopic: THE CANADIAN ECONOMY
