PC

John Carnell Crosbie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John C. Crosbie (St. John's West):

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

In view of the unnecessarily offensive nature of the article entitled "Confessions of an Ex-Priest" in the Weekend magazine of March 3, having no redeeming social purpose or point other than sensationalism in attempting the degrading of a major Christian religion and libelling those who serve that cause, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vegreville (Mr. Mazankowski):

That this Flouse regrets the poor taste and deplorable lack of honest journalistic standards of Weekend magazine as shown in the issue of March 3 and hopes that such a lamentable lack of judgment and good taste will not be repeated.

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

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, and seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North (Mr. Orlikow), I move:

That this House declares its readiness to give swift passage, before parliament is ended, to any legislation respecting veterans, particularly if it modifies the 48 per cent rule which applies to the widows of disabled veterans, adjusts the rate of compensation for former prisoners of war, or makes improvements in the War Veterans Allowance Act, and that this House expresses the hope that the Minister of Veterans Affairs (Mr. MacDonald) will introduce such legislation forthwith.

PUBLIC WORKS

PC

Robert Elgin McKinley

Progressive Conservative

Mr. R. E. McKinley (Huron-Middlesex):

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

In light of information provided in the House yesterday by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Works (Mr. Herbert) which is both misleading and in conflict with statements issued by the minister last week, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Northumberland-Durham (Mr. Lawrence):

That this House directs the Minister of Public Works (Mr. Ouellet), when he is to be absent from the House, to make sure someone in a position to speak for him has been informed about issues affecting the running of his department, so as to safeguard against misleading the House on matters which the minister has already announced to the country at large through the press.

PC

Frank Oberle

Progressive Conservative

Mr. F. Oberle (Prince George-Peace River):

Mr. Speaker, my motion under Standing Order 43 is in regard to public announcements as reported in the Sunday Post of March 4 respecting a very senior, partially public official, the housing czar of Canada, Mr. Teron, who stated that he is moving into the third world and that he has been recruited by the Progressive Conservative party as a candidate.

I move, sir, seconded by the hon. member for Wetaskiwin (Mr. Schellenberger):

That the public record be set straight, and that it be known that unlike the Liberal party, the Progressive Conservative party does not make-
