ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

SUGGESTED MEASURES TO MINIMIZE PRICE INCREASES TO CANADIANS-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

PC

John Wise

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John Wise (Elgin):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the unilateral and untimely decision by the government to remove the subsidy to the milling industry, which will cause not only instability within the processing industry but also dramatic price increases to Canadian consumers, especially those who can least afford these increases at this time, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. John's East (Mr. McGrath):

That the Minister of Transport revise this policy and implement a program to include a three-year phase-out plan and, secondly, establish a price quotation system by the Canadian Wheat Board for two or three-month periods to reduce market fluctuations, to add stability to the industry and to minimize price increases to Canadian consumers.

Mr. Tom Cossitt (Leeds):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Marquette (Mr. Stewart):

That the Prime Minister make a statement to the House confirming or denying statements made last night by Marjorie Nichols, Washington correspondent for the Vancouver Sun, on the CBC radio program "As it Happens" that the government is recalling Gerard Pelletier, the Canadian Ambassador to France, for purposes of advising the Prime Minister as to whether he should or should not leave office by the middle of January, and whether it is present government policy to-

Mr. Bob Rae (Broadview):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that the problems of women and youth in finding employment are very severe, and in view of the apparent determination of this government to lower the participation rate of these groups in the economy, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That women and youth remain target groups for the Outreach program of the Department of Employment and Immigration.

FORESTRY

Reginald Cyril Symes

Mr. Cyril Symes (Sault Ste. Marie):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The minister of the environment has been saying to the House that privatization of the government's forest products laboratories is being wel-

corned by industry and that the nature and independence of these laboratories will not be jeopardized.

In view of the fact that there is a lack of hard evidence that industry is prepared to support the laboratories financially, as witnessed by the recommendation of the Council of Forest Industries in British Columbia not to extend industrial support, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Timiskaming (Mr. Peters):

That the minister abandon his plans to privatize these important forest laboratories.
