ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

AGRICULTURE

PC

James Aloysius McGrath

Progressive Conservative

Mr. James A. McGrath (St. John's East):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity, since Christmas is approximately one week away.

In an in-house publication put out by Agriculture Canada on November 28, entitled "Food Outlook", under the heading "Poultry" is found the following:

Turkey supplies will be short for Christmas, causing much higher retail prices than a year ago.

In view of that, under the provisions of Standing Order 43 I move:

That this House directs the Minister of Agriculture to apologize to his colleague, the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, whom he embarrassed in the House and seriously undermined and, furthermore, that he apologize to Canadian consumers who are forced to pay higher prices for turkeys because of the minister's refusal to accept the advice of his own department.

FINANCE

PC

George Harris Hees

Progressive Conservative

Hon. George Hees (Prince Edward-Hastings):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity to move a motion under the provisions of Standing Order 43.

As capital at reasonable rates of interest is a vital necessity for starting up and expanding farming and industrial operations, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Ottawa-Carle-ton (Mrs. Pigott):

That this House directs the Minister of Finance to make available low-interest, government-backed loans to enable young men and women to get started in business and farming, and small businesses and farming operations which need

additional capital for expansion to be able to obtain it at rates of interest they can afford.

John Edward Broadbent

Mr. Broadbent:

Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) has confirmed the point. My motion continues:

-this as both proof that he has succumbed to the Greek vice of hubris, and even after 11 years in the light of the blinding sun has not been able to distinguish the forms from the substance, thus instructs him to retreat to the cave forthwith.
