DELAY IN ANSWERING ORDER PAPER QUESTIONS-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

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

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity concerning the unjustifiable failure of the government to answer the following questions asked by me: No. 576, of November 14, 1978; No. 611, of November 22, 1978; and No. 1,032, of February 6, 1979.

Without there being prompt replies to questions asked in parliament, authorities on parliamentary procedure without exception have concluded that the institution would be detrimentally eroded and ultimately destroyed. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vegreville (Mr. Mazankow-ski):

To prevent the truth being denied by the government to the Canadian people by government roadblocks of silence, that the government forthwith be directed to provide prompt answers to these questions, otherwise with dissolution they will remain unanswered.

CULTURAL AFFAIRS

NDP

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

New Democratic Party

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, considering the delightful concert that was given today in the rotunda by the National Arts Centre Orchestra, perhaps I might be permitted to say that one good orchestra deserves another. Accordingly, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, and seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North (Mr. Orlikow), I move:

That this House expresses its concern over the loss that Canada would suffer if the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra were to fold and, therefore, notwithstanding the primary responsibility of the government of Manitoba as well as of individual and corporate donors in Manitoba, calls on the federal government to make an appropriate grant so that the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra may be enabled to continue to enrich the cultural life of Canada.

VETERANS AFFAIRS

PC

Roch La Salle

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Roch La Salle (Joliette):

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

Considering that throughout the country the Canadian Pension Commission has experienced unacceptable delays in reviewing the files of veterans; considering that conditions in Quebec are just as deplorable for our veterans; considering that cases were brought to my attention by veterans who are told by the Canadian Pension Commission: "It is impossible to specify when we will proceed with the consideration of your case" or still "We will not receive the medical data for your appeal before a year or more" I move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. McKenzie):

That the Minister of Veterans Affairs give the necessary instructions to the Canadian Pension Commission, so that the review process of those cases can be speeded up in a spirit of brotherhood for those who gave much of themselves for our country.

SOCIAL INSURANCE

?

Mr. C.-A. Gauthier@Roberval

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Considering that doctors in several provinces are increasingly disillusioned with the universal medicare plan, that many of them are gradually opting out of the various provincial medicare plans, and that the Minister of National Health and Welfare (Miss Begin) has stated that the federal government will withdraw financial support to the provinces in this field if they fail to solve the problem, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lotbiniere (Mr. Janelle):

That, so as not to put in greater jeopardy the access of Canadians to medical care, the federal government commit itself to solve the current problem by substituting for the present federal assistance a proportionate number of tax points to the provinces.
