UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

SC

Gilles Caouette

Social Credit

Mr. Gilles Caouette (Temiscamingue):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to introduce a motion dealing with an urgent question of pressing necessity.

Given the statutory 30-day limit for any unemployment insurance beneficiary to file an appeal, and considering that those limits are not respected by the Unemployment Insurance Commission, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Rober-val (Mr. Gauthier):

That the House enjoin the Minister of Employment and Immigration to compel the commission to expedite its decisions, finalize any application or settle any dispute in a period of time equal to that granted to beneficiaries.

NDP

Stuart Malcolm Leggatt

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stuart Leggatt (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to Standing Order 43.

In view of the action taken yesterday by the Minister of Justice (Mr. Lalonde) and the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Cullen) in commencing legal proceedings against the federal Human Rights Commission seeking to prevent their investigation into the violation of the human rights of Elizabeth Lodge, Carmen Hyde, Elizabeth Cox, Elaine Peart, Rubena Whyte, Gloria Lawrence and Lola Anderson, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North (Mr. Orlikow):

That this House instruct the Minister of Justice to abandon his attempt to muzzle the Canadian Human Rights Commission so that an appropriate investigation may continue.

NATIONAL REVENUE

PC

Thomas Gordon Towers

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Towers (Red Deer):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of grave importance.

In view of the revelation of the hon. member for Central Nova (Mr. MacKay) that income tax returns placed in the custody of Statistics Canada by the National Revenue minister were not given adequate security, an abuse of trust of the general public that such information is treated as strictly confidential, and in view of the fact that the revenue minister must have a record of those whose files were released to Statistics Canada, a majority of whom appear to be farmers who, understandably, suspect they are being subjected to unwarranted attention, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That the Minister of National Revenue personally communicate in writing to all persons who have been so betrayed, and give an explanation as to the purpose for which Statistics Canada requested their income tax files and the circumstances under which these forms were left unattended.

Arthur John (Art) Lee

Mr. Art Lee (Vancouver East):

Mr. Speaker, I have a motion of urgent and pressing necessity under Standing Order 43.

In view of the government's commitment to federal spending restraint and the desire for a higher degree of cost effectiveness in federal government projects, I move, seconded by the hon. member for St. Catharines (Mr. Parent):

That this House requests the Department of Public Works to undertake a periodic review of the efficacy of the $10,000 wall of secrecy built of lead which has been installed between the research offices of the NDP and Conservative parties, which was requested by those two parties to avoid mutual contamination.
