ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

CALL FOR EXPANSION OF WHEAT SALES TO CHINA-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

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

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I rise on the basis of President Carter having virtually ended the OPEC style of co-operation, having launched an aggressive marketing strategy for wheat in China and apparently taking for granted that Canada has made herself vulnerable to competition. I therefore move:

That this House calls on the government, in order to preserve and expand the market in China which was secured under my government and has continued since, to send a delegation immediately to Peking, composed of representatives of the Departments of Industry, Trade and Commerce and of Agriculture, the Wheat Board and national farm organizations.

Some bon. Members: Hear, hear!

That this House expresses its deep sympathy to the bereaved families of these dedicated public servants.

VETERANS AFFAIRS

REQUESTED PRORATA PENSIONS FOR WIDOWS OF DISABLED VETERANS-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

NDP

Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, it could be that this is the day when the House will recognize the extreme urgency of this matter. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Timiskaming (Mr. Peters):

That this House calls on the Minister of Veterans Affairs to introduce at an early date an amendment to the Pension Act to provide for prorata pensions for widows of disabled veterans where the disability of the veteran was assessed below 48 per cent, it being clearly recognized that all members of this House of Commons would be pleased to pass such an amendment before Christmas.

STATUS OF WOMEN

REPORT OF ADVISORY COUNCIL CONCERNING ADVANCEMENT IN PUBLIC SERVICE-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

David Samuel Horne MacDonald

Progressive Conservative

Mr. David MacDonald (Egmont):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Because of the significant and disturbing delay by the Advisory Council on the Status of Women in the publishing of their annual evaluation on the advancement of women in the public service, and since this delay appears to be caused by the extraordinary action of sending preliminary copies of the report to the Public Service Commission itself for its comments, criticism and possible censorship, and that this essentially deprives parliament and the public of a full, frank and objective report, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kingston and the Islands (Miss MacDonald):

That the minister responsible for the status of women act immediately to ensure the report is published at once without amendment or deletion.
